Stardust, thank you very much, I've learned a lot.
You have two lanes of one summer-fun.
(Let me guess: rshmich light off next year to maybe Finland Norway.)

With your permission, I'd like to order ask non-urgent questions, but I think they can help aspiring to go for in the future:

Orientation – do you think using a more updated instructor in 2008, would have prevented the cases where you accidentally click the wrong path? That is, whether the problems were fixed route changes orientation/seasonal? And maybe highlight or missing signage problematic, causing difficulty How do you think we should drive to reduce the number of mistakes

Information about you--got in later information discovered sometimes, and sometimes it is wrong and misleading. You mentioned that there is a telephone, there seems to have the most up-to-date information. This is the recommended way to catch up (maybe with the exception of those who are staying in the cabin)?

Avoiding vague "decline"-specify where villages preferring to stay on the Ridge, rather than stick with the route. Is the path where he marked variation?

Snow-snow that comes to half height tent already in the first days of September, temperatures of minus 6, are common events? Exceptions?

And one last question-alpacas?

Thank you.

We really accepted within days.  The night he describes was freezing rain at an altitude of 2300 m, it didn't snow.

Here is a picture from GRAND COL FERRET at an altitude of 2400 m that looks like snow.

Hello, move

Unfortunately I have no conclusive answer to all your questions but I will try to answer as best I can.

If there were no errors in navigation because they were using outdated manual. I don't think there were major changes in the route compared to the maps and explanations in the Guide. The problem was that all the related information was not updated: accommodation, restaurants, shops and other services.

Errors in navigation has other causes: inadequate or missing check, using map alertness to markup and misinformed you get. How to prevent such errors? When the Polish guy we navigate like I told the story, were equipped with two different guides, map and GPS yet succeeded. The navigation mistakes are probably part of the walk.

The only two ikatot annual and one received misinformation, as told in the story through. About the update for the focus mode, not really occur to me to do that and only that Russian guy said I looked after the fact and I found the following site:

Http://www.europaweg.ch/

Wisely after the fact, I sent them an email with the question of whether the path is open. Here is the answer I received:

Thank you for your mail.

The Europaweg is unfortunately made.

If you have any questions or wishes, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Best regards

I'm sure this answer was automatic because what I asked was: are all the sections on Europaweg if what open sections.

Obviously the answer sent wrong because there are parts of the trail they open.

The path where I went it actually-TMB segment and is of course selected. But anyway it's good and you just go with it until you get to the destination.

Don't be a misunderstanding: when I wrote the snow covered half of my tent height meant this would accumulate on the sheet and the amount accumulated on the ground was quite negligible.

About the temperatures I don't really know if these extreme temperatures for the season, but I've seen graphs. But should not forget that it is abut to altitudes where 3000 m can happen. What the impressive difference between day and night temperature. Day temperatures are likely even if the night was very cold.

Alpacas? In my life it's what the Americans were asking about and I'm pretty surprised. But maybe they know something we don't know.

Anyway met Gasenried village early Alpacas walking towards Europahutt

Look,

You could be right but may be not. Has altitude difference of 500 m between the two places. I'm not a meteorologist but this height difference must have meaning. Anyway, everyone was there, including local residents probably seen in a life that fell from the sky as snow rather than anything else.

Thank you very much for the detailed answer.

Orientation — right. The navigation mistakes are part of the challenge and experience. I didn't want to go along.

Focus. I thought focused abroad will be friendlier to Pune.

It was interesting to read the story and remember through the description and pictures of the experience of the trip on the WHR, thanks.

About the navigation, after six years in use with GPS (and paper maps of various kinds in Israel and abroad), I think a good preparation of updated maps, points of interest (PBX), planning and attempting to prevent most mistakes in navigation, although many times things change/differ from what is shown on maps and need to adapt to change.
