Planning a long distance hike is really no difference from a shorter hike, isn’t it? In theory the concepts are the same but in reality there are a number of other factors that come into consideration. In this episode I will use my upcoming thru hike of the Bibbulmun Track (1,000km) in Western Australia to provide a broad guide to what you should consider when planning a long distance hike.Once I have finished my journey towards the end of September I will report back on how I went including how well my planning did, or didn’t, pay off.
I have included a checklist with additional considerations as part of the written version of this podcast episode which can be found here
