Topic - Le Chemin de la Liberte - Freedom Trail

Cash on 29 Nov 2012
I did a solo tab over the Pyrenees at end of August-early Sept this year following this famous WW2 escape route from France into Spain. Had a great 4 day crossing and enjoyed/endured just a wee bit of what the evading Allied troops and escaping civvies must have gone through. Took a 30 litre sac with a light weight doss bag (and bivvy bag for emergencies)and stayed in gites or huts plus one night free of charge in a working shepherd's cabin sipping cheap wine with the host, very cosy if not a bit weird. There were some very tough climbs, a few nav errors and the last day over the frontier into Spain was brutal in zero viz and Baltic weather! I have a homemade itinerary including accomodation details if anyone wants it emailing.
