So my Chick gets a opening on the Otter trail on the 10th to 15th June with a friend of hers....anybody done, any advice I can give, I will be packing all her gear and lending her most of my gear ... :shock: so the equipment side is not a problem, it doesnt seem a long distance in 5 days but then I take the terrain is tricky/steep inclines/declines in places. My main concern is the river crossings which there seem to be plenty, the one I was concerned about was the last one where there is an escape route back up to the N2 :shock:

So ja any tips, pointers, things you carried along the trail which you didnt really need, standard of the overnight huts etc etc will be appreciated

cheers

The only advice i can give is lots of biltong per day.Nicely vacuumed packed.You can place the order and pick it up on your way to the trail :D:
