I am planning to backpack the HRP from west (Hendaya) to East (Banyuls-Sur-Mer) in September/October 2014. I know its a long way off, but necessitated by job schedules etc.
I am interested in hearing from others with similar aspirations, especially what preparation you are doing including training, planning etc. Any suggestions and contact is welcome!
I'm based in the Southeast US and will also be doing lots of backpacking trips in the Smoky's, Pisgahs etc.
