This is the second part of the interview with David Lintern who recently completed a 500 mile journey along the border of France and Spain, using the high mountain routes of the Pyrenees, mostly the HRP, wild camping on the way, including a week’s detour into Spain and the Ordesa Canyon during the 60 days trip.
In the first part he talked about his preparations and the gradual changes which came over him as his left his normal urban world behind.
Here we begin to get into the nitty gritty of the trip, the people and the equipment needed. Plus of course the commitment and costs of taking 60 days off work. Please view his blog while you listen to this, which is www.selfpowered.net as it is full of images from the trip, and there plenty of eloquent, amusing and interesting observations of the people he met and the places he traveled through.
We continue where David starts to describe some of the people he walked with and the strangers he met on route, who soon became good friends.
