Hey

I'm about to trek the TMB in early July with a friend, and I'm deciding what equipment to take.

This is my first Trek abroad so I don't know. I read a lot of guides and saw I have a lot of warm clothes that I need to accomplish.

The trip I do is integrated with urban trip: I started the trip to Rome, Italy and passes through major cities in Italy for the first two weeks and then in early July I started the Trek of the Alps for two weeks (from the Italian for TMB, Courmeyeur). The partner directly for early July and doing the part. In terms of accommodation, common and I plan to sleep in the tent cabins and sometimes (although almost every point huts along this trip). Because of the complexity of my trip, I find it hard to decide which equipment and even-size, and I'd be glad to help.

In terms of buying guides: Guide of CICERONE to TMB, third edition (2011) that I realized he is highly recommended (' TMB ' Bible '), and a recommended should topographic for protection against moisture.

My questions are:

1. What size of taking all this trip (including the first two weeks in Italy itself)? I recommend to bring big bags to the TMB for the huts around the availability of everything, that people bring only clothes with them. But I plan to sleep in tents there too so have a little more equipment than usual. Maybe take a bag, leave it at the hotel, to trek with smaller then the trek back to the hotel and take the case?

2. for clothing: what clothes required to bring and what not? I used a lot in the following terms: equipment website http://www.walkingthetmb.com/preparation.html but I'm not sure how the list is accurate. I think it has a little too much and can be reduced (e.g. the goalkeeper's Jersey, from what I've seen nobody uses them).

3. equipment rental: heard about the option of renting clothing and equipment and is cheap and sounds reasonable, because I'm not going to do much in the next four years and caddy for boyadam clothing. It is trustworthy? I think mostly about nubi.co.il.

4. shoes: shoes that say one of most important things for the trip itself, and therefore recommend that you buy quality leather shoes with high ankle. But a search here on the site I saw that the way some people on simple shoes like NEW BALANCE, because no large rocks and sharp btiol that require stability. In my case should be taken into account already tore ligaments in his left ankle about a job in the past, so that an ankle. But perhaps worth it to me to save a few hundred dollars and go with already have shoes like sports shoes or BLUNDSTONE simple?

Happy to answer quick because I'm going to take a little trip includes lodging in the country next week to rub on the new equipment for a bigger tour in June.

Hey,
I'm sorry to skip a large portion of the questions, but unfortunately I wasn't still in TMB. However-there guys shoes that go with sneakers because they don't carry a lot of weight, and it also lets you get shoes. Anyway, that's why the risk have better foot high ש'תתפוס good shoe. Anyway the landston wouldn't be taking in any way that is too soft for my taste. Smallest and skids.

About NUBI-didn't use their services but I heard positive reviews.

1. If you return to the same hotel, I guess the easiest would be to leave a suitcase with all the excess equipment and take a backpack with the relevant equipment.

2. regarding clothing-look at the monster thread on the TMB, I think there's equipment lists. However, there is no logic in hiring clothing. I also heard good things about Novi (the owners also writes occasionally). If the rent is just per day, maybe the author can bring you some of the equipment and thus save a little.

4. If you have a history of ankle trouble, and clearly you don't hike regularly, I would invest in a shoe (it doesn't have to be so harsh BTW). The blandston. We recommend that you travel phenomenon in the country (and of course go on in Italy).

Why are you going camping? Are there any other reasons besides economic savings

In your case I wouldn't go about shoes. Audio recommendations above.

Thanks for the reference, I saw this thread now. I looked for one month already, thanks! I ask my questions there as well.

About the tent they economic efficiency considerations and for the experience. I'm not completely inexperienced in this field, I have made quite a few times in my life and I loved very much.

I'm guessing yours's area does not include accommodation in alpine conditions. Have you slept in a tent at a temperature of below zero?

If there is a possibility, was based solely on the cabins, as most people do track.

This will save quite a bit of weight on their backs (tent, mattress, I might add, clothing, cooking utensils if you don't rely on the food), and make your trip more enjoyable.

Incidentally, there's no point in asking these questions in two different threads. Responding here are responding.

However, it can be beneficial for you to carefully read the welcome message (which contains some excellent) and stool on the other pages.

I don't think there is any problem if appropriate equipment.

Tent, and have appropriate mattresses? I don't know exactly where along the route do to sleep (you know?), but depending on the altitude, the temperature likely will be much shorter than what you're used to (that means hot and qualitative mattress kg). And should prepare for the possibility of rain all night (tent).

About other equipment, especially clothing, you have the option to pass through for one of infinite Decathlon stores that spread across Europe and in Italy in particular. You can get cheap quality stuff twice compared to the supply. It requires some courage because you left it till the last minute, but if you make yourself a list of 2-3 branches that can move them during your Italian trip in case the inventory problem will be one of them, there's no way to stay without equipment to trek.

Of course you need shoes to buy, no choice but (first shoe should measure), and go as much as possible before the trek to get used to the foot and shoe. I haven't seen people who go hiking with NB, while hiking boots have softer, but it is not recommended to walk with weight on their backs especially if you have any problems there.

The idea to leave a suitcase with more equipment in the hotel before the TMB is successful. If you change the night before the Trek on Courmeyeur you can just leave the case there. The game is easy, but there is no reason to athelb in urban trip, then the case will let you separate the forces is very important.

We thought the weather camping and good air when you have a point, and I quite like that. Weather is not suitable for tents, like rain or temperatures below zero-sleep.

Some great value accommodation in total for the rest of the Trek? I may not save a significant amount of money here at all and I'm just treading water.

This trench about everyday after 5 pm.

And טמפ׳ below freezing nearly every night.

Long before bed + breakfast + 40 to 60יורו.

From what I remember from last year

Look, you have two options regarding area accommodations or provide quality equipment that can keep you on cold nights and rainy days, or you're taking equipment "but simplified use it only at night you're sure to be dry and not too cold.

In the first case, you will have no choice but to invest in quality equipment and financial terms your only choice is to find who to lend it you otherwise it almost as expensive to sleep in the cabin every night (especially since it's about saving just a few nights in a cabin and all Trek), and you didn't look much equipment using years according to you.

In the second case you have to hope that there will be enough days like this you can be sure it won't be very high rain that night, and not be too cold. It probably will limit even further the number of nights sleep in a tent and a cabin, so this option will cost you money, and even worse, carry on your back you may not use it too much during the Trek. No rope

The option much simpler and easy to save money on this trek is to simply reduce the number of days. Relying on cabins, take a small bag (40 litres) and lightweight (10 kg roof tops), and you can download fun (!) a day or two of the Trek and to save on. In the long thread that bind you to have files with different subdivisions of the Trek. Check them out.

Also, I don't remember, but with quite a sense it situation, cheaper to sleep in small villages than in high and remote cabins. Also cheaper to operate hotels in the villages, though there is more competition. So try to plan the route so that the lower towns and sleep in cabins, and it will save you a few dozen euros over the whole Trek.
