How about the Jura, Northern Switzerland, you can do it using hostels or Getes, I don't think you can wild camp in that part of the world very easily.

I saw him at the doctors surgery randomly and he started talking to me so we had a chat. He wasn't supposed to, it was against his bail conditions but he wasn't the sort of gentleman bothered by that. I didn't ask about his eyes he volunteered it.


Crikey, well I am glad you are ok!

General Walking Discussion / Re: Preventing Achilles Tendon Injury

If you haven't, then you could try putting heel raisers in your shoes/boots.  They raise your heel and take some of the pressure off of your Achilles.


Maybe get some kinaesiology tape and do a bit of strapping?

General Walking Discussion / First multi-day hike?
« Last post by JJ87 on Today at 21:51:08 »
Hi all,


I've set my mind on multi day hiking, but never did more than half days to full days of hiking in the mountains of north Garda lake and Paklenica (Croatia). This means I have zero experience in bringing own supplies, carying heavy gear etc.


To get "into it" and deciding it's really what I want to do I have been looking for "beginner hikes" or 2 to 3 day hikes in Europe (I'm from Belgium myself). Obviously it's mostly the "epic" hikes that get attention online, and so far I've only found Cinque Terre as a relatively easy "multi day" hike.
Because of pig plague and home situation I can't go to Wallonie or Luxembourg :/.


Are there any "I wish I had known about that hike when I first started" idea's?


Cheers
J

Er..yes it might be ;)
The banks don't quite look like Lambfoot ( and the water in Lambfoot is quite dirty for some reason  ;D  )

Wales / Crib Goch Foxes Path
« Last post by Bigfoot_Mike on Today at 21:36:56 »
i haven this called the Foxes Path and the Goat Path. Does anyone know how easy this path is to find from the Crib Goch North Ridge end? I have seen a few descriptions from Bwlch Y Moch, but none from th3 North Ridge. I have previously descended the North Ridge into Cwm Glas Mawr when reversing Crib Goch, but wasnít aware of this path at the time.
