We're going on the Tour du Mont Blanc trip, departing 12 July. Anyone else?
Hoping to hear from some of you!
Jaki and Trevor Wilson
I am also on this trip, I am flying to Geneva on the 11th from Bristol, but will join the group at Geneva airport on the 12th
This trip is approaching fast and I've not thought much about it until now.
I'm booked on this trip, really looking forward to spending a week in the Alps.
See you all Saturday.
Anybody else going?
My friend Kate and I are also booked on the above trip departing on the 12th. Really looking forward to it. By the way, I'm not from Korea as my profile describes - not sure why its defaulted to this and I can’t seem to change it at the mo. I originate from the flat plains of Bedfordshire instead - a lot less exotic!
Hi Dave, you'd better get packing! I know what you mean, though. This trip has crept up on me, too. Booked it quite a while ago, but counting the days now. I've never been to the Alps before - nor to Switzerland.
I wonder if it'll feel like a grade C/D? It'll be the hardest graded Exodus trip I've done. My husband and I climbed Toubkal with Exodus last Sept/Oct... that was a C. It appears that this is a C/D due to having to carry your own gear.
Hello also to Chris and Caroline. Are you seasoned mountain walkers?
By the way, what ratio of Swiss Francs to Euros are you all bringing? I must have another look at the itinerary and figure out how much of the trip is in each country.
Not sure about Swiss Francs, looks like 2 full and 2 part days in the country, anywhere near the border will probaly accept Euros, but a few £ worth may be handy.
C or D grade, I dont think any day will be much harder than the Toubkal climb / descent day, well I hope not. I've Recently returned from that one , but done nothing for last 3 weeks.
I've been to the Alps several times myself, but only when they have been covered in snow, so looking forward to seeing them in their summer splender.
I shall get a few swiss francs in the morning then, thanks for that.
Not been with exodus before, is there anything else I need to know?
I take it you all rate the trips?
A few oberservations, the grade seems to be B/C and not C/D thats according to the trip notes and the brochure
( moderate/challenging ) so Caroline I hope that makes you feel a tad happier, my own fitness is not at its best after an idle 3 weeks resting a heel problem. My daypack is 30 ltr, which more than copes with the days main essencials namely toilet roll and water, I am not sure what water sources are like in the Alps I normally carry capacity for over 3 ltrs but dont like to fill it due to the weight. Chris, I dont think there is anythinf else you need to know, and if like me you always forget something, getting by is the only option. I've been on 5 previous Exodus trips ( 4 camping ) all without complaint, and its amazing what meals these guys can knock up on a campsite.
Until Saturday Dave P.
HEAP BIG SORRY just realised that my trip is TWB828 same date but 15 days duration ( B not P )
