Hello Sue. They've all gone off to Peru and left us behind . . . boo!
I got back on Sunday and can't stop thinking about it. It was absolutely amazing and I was so pleased that I did the Salcantay extension as the classic bit of the trail seems a bit crowded and lightweight after being so high up in such lonely, desolate landscape. As we met up with the people on the later stages I couldn't help but smugly think to myself, "lightweights!" But it was all exceptionally good.
I've probably got loads of tips but I'm a bit pushed with my work at the moment so I'll drip feed them to you as I remember them. The most important one really is to get as fit as you possibly can but don't get into a panic if you think you're not fit enough, as I did. I'm 54 and about a stone overweight and I managed it. Some bits were very hard but the thought of not completing it never entered my head. The only symptom of AMS that I showed was breathlessness so I was quite pleased with myself there.
Any road, got to dash, but I'll knock up a list of things you might find helpful in the near future.
I just typed you a relatively lengthy message, pressed the button and it disappeared. Bit busy to do it again now but I will soon. I've got a few tips but the top one is don't worry about anything. If I can do it then anybody can . . . and it was fantastic.
More soon then.
What an idiot I am. My lost message (of the Incas) was on page two of the thread and I didn't realise.
