Hello, I'm starting in a few weeks the path and have a few questions:

1) read almost everywhere that the tent not necessary nor recommended. But what other way is there to be sure I don't wake up with a snake inside the bag. Especially it's pretty much the answer they wake up.

2) trip I did last October, when the weather is reasonable, I froze in the cold overnight bag-probably of genus g. What is more important to this period-km easy and small or heat What budget?

3) troops whether it begins this season from North to South or vice versa? How terrible desert heat in early may?

Thank you!!

Hello Elad

  1. I'm not an expert in snakes and argliham but from experience of dozens and even hundreds of nights under the stars in the country has never encountered such a case nor heard of such a case.
    Furthermore, I have no ability to assess the cumulative amount of sleeping bag nights there in year but sure it is many thousands. I don't remember the media reporting on the case in the past 20 years.
    In short, even without understanding snake behaviors I think statistically speaking, zero risk. Would love it if someone who knows the subject better can confirm or correct me.

  2. Like all first period, it is very important that the bag fits to temperatures (warm enough and not too much). In Israel at the beginning of spring is probably enough that for around 0 degrees shblillot in particular should use warm clothes (wool, fleece hat for example is very helpful).
    About the size and weight of course the easier and better.
    Budgets are very large and depend primarily on the weight and the bag.

    Kim to a temperature of 0 degrees can weigh between 500 g to 2 kg and the price will range between $ 500 to $ 300.
    Long trip as Israel trail I recommend investing in relatively easy bag (maybe not, but at around 500 g kg each). Here is a link toa great officer. You should just make sure that is the right temperature range.

  3. I recommend to start with the South this season. In mid-April and early May has stingingly where temperatures in the South are rising.
    I got to go before the Passover in order to prevent area farm 46 degrees. Not pleasant at all!

You have such a good freeze and pounds the night. Don't play with this, you have to sleep properly for walk.
-For tent, has quite a few nights with Tal, and at this time you are definitely liable to sudden rain.
Hot desert may not recommend unless you are accustomed to walking in the heat, and I doubt your words. Start in the South just know you have to be in great shape to start. Not just.
