Arrived on 2nd September 2011 at 3pm, in the small resort town of Banyuls Sur Mer on the Mediterranean sea, 64 days and 900kms from the start of the Haute Route Pyrenees, and walked into the sea. It's been an epic trip, a voyage of discovery, a hugely enjoyable learning curve, and a good old fashioned adventure - the stuff of life.
To those that have donated, thanks so much for taking an interest and supporting the walk- it has
made a difference to the walkers and will make a difference to both Soundmix and the JMT. If you've yet to donate, there is still time. The page remains open; http://www.charitygiving.co.uk/davidlintern
And if you've been holding out to see if I would complete the challenge, now's the time to throw a few pennies into the hat for 2 fantastic organisations!
Your generosity will be rewarded. For all those who donate 10£ or over, there will be a PDF report, including a full gear review, photos and clarifications to the existing English language guide (the
Cicerone/Joosten book) relevant to those who might want to explore this fantastic area on foot. If this is of interest email me at davepowered at gmail.com with your name and donation date/amount.
Please put 'hrp report' in the subject heading. Some have already expressed an interest in this, but please do make sure I have your email so I can furnish you with the thing when it's done.
Now on the train home. Gravity. What goes up, must come down. The Pyrenees are ace, and walking a long distance walk is something else. Like the man said, 'only connect'.
