Ireland to austria backpacking trek, need done tips! on 12/12/2010 00:26:12 MST Print View

Hey guys, so this January, I'm going over to Ireland and plan on backpacking/couch surfing my way to Austria, meeting up with a friend over in England. I've never done anything like this before, and the most I've ever backpacked was about a 15 mile a day pace through the California Siskiyou mountains. I'm looking to go through Ireland, then England, then swing down to France then connect to the E8 in Germany and take that down through Austria.

I have a backpack and some supplies, i.e. pots, pans, stove sleeping bag, and some other general stuff like that. But I'm looking for any suggestions for a really good ightweight/weather proof tent, and a good pair of hiking boots that wil ast me the whole way.

Also, if you have any suggestions on the trip itself, that would be great as I'm new to this long distance stuff!
