GR11 in 23 Days

I completed the GR11 on Monday 26th July at a scorching and windy Cap de Creus, 825km and 23 days since leaving Cabo Higuer on the Atlantic Coast. Sorry for lack of updates on the blog, but I was hiking around 13 hours most days, and never saw an internet cafe en route.

I have now started to blog my epic Pyrenean ramblings at http://gr11blog.blogspot.com/

Congratulations Chris! This is an extraordinary achievement!! I'm so glad you're okay and can't wait to hear more and see pics! I'll be in Penrith at the weekend, maybe speak? x x

Well done Chris, great achievement! I'm looking forward to hearing all about it.

Chris - Looks like another classic! Well done - would be interested in seeing a profile of the route if your software can spit that out ?

That is just completely awesome. I'm lost for words! Looking forward to the write up - that'll take some doing in itself!

Chris said...

Thanks folks! It was a mind-boggling effort hiking those back to back long days, and will be a similarly humungous effort to type up the story and process the 1224 photos I took.

Swaz - it would be great to see a profile. I'll need to give some thought to that one, since I didn't record any GPS data. The Google map tracks are drawn by hand.
