I've a "big" birthday looming on the distant horizon, and have provisional permission (and may be even financial sponsorship?) from my better half to go for a once-in-a-lifetime thingy.
I've seen bits of this when in Turkey, and read much of the book. But neither has put my mind at ease about walking for 500km, and one month in a country where you cannot get decent maps!
Even on the small sections that I've walked, some logging work had obliterated the way-markers (which were otherwise pretty good) and Kate - who developed the walk/wrote the book, is forever having to issue updates on the web-site, due to erosion/logging/housing development etc.
Has anyone out there got any advice about a venture into the unknown, like this? I know NW has walked Turkey before (How did you find your way around?) presumably others have done this sort of thing in newly developing areas.
Although I've tried this sort of thing in Sardinia, its always been relatively short days, and with no targets to meet the option of hopping on a bus is always open .. and the language is not as much of an issue.
This is someting I've fancied for a long while, but basically been to "chicken" to consider, until now .... Spare backbone anyone?
