Summary of the trip: pay attention to the sheer length of the trail.
To reach the destination you must above all to move forward. All 4 trips this year were about covering a significant distance. Most time and efforts are taken by walking from 8 to 17. Most memorable part however is usually camping from 5 PM to 6-7 AM and all the emotions around this day achievements. Without doing a significant progress during the day, there is no exiting camping emotions.
