Just back from the Red Route from Trieste to Oberstdorf, seven weeks. Slovenia was OK. There's a lot of limestone country, lots of scree, not a lot of water in some places, and a lot of cows ... We had a heat wave, several snow storms, a lot of fog, and some sunny weather. We took a couple of 1-day lay-overs for general restocking and cleanup, and had to retreat once when the snow on the pass was a shade too much - OK, it was storming as we attempted. Otherwise we just kept going.
We went Refugee rather than tenting for most of the trip - after being hit by 150+ kph winds one slightly extreme night at the start.
Food pretty good, but we never want to see another knodel.
