I want to do the Tour du Mont Blanc. Don't know if it's gonna happen or not yet.


Still arguing with the wife, who says it would be selfish to spend 400 on a hiking trip for just me.


She made a big mistake a few years ago though, when she told me she admires that I tend to just do what I want and deal with the consequences afterwards. Because even though there are consequences, I've still done what I wanted to do. Said she wishes she could be like that. So I'll probably just do it anyway.


I'm nice like that.

Worth every penny and more! Only 400, does that include your fare there and back?

Yep! The campsites I've looked at are cheap. Return flights 85 and a couple hundred euros for food/beer.

To complete a 100km walk (not sure where yet) in 24 hours. My current maximum is 32km which was an easy bimble locally.

Hoping to head to Grindlewald in September. Possibly another week on the SWCP or Welsh Coast Path. I'm currently working on the route of the Derbyshire 8 Peaks walk I've invented 😃

Tour du Mont Blanc, 85 for a flight, not bad at all, to Geneva? I set myself a budget for that walk too but I got so much in the eating, drinking and enjoying myself on route I went way over the top!

At 6 for a beer at most Refuges and Auberges, it wasn't hard to go over budget or at least I did  :D

I'm not a big drinker. Only be having 1 or 2 at the end of some days. As for food if my budget gets tight I'll be getting paid again about 2 days in so that'll help. And I can always go stingy and get food to cook myself from the supermarkets. Even when there are other options.
