Holy Guacamole! We survived the walk on Day 1, but barely. Yesterday was brutal and I nearly kicked myself for thinking that this would be doable or that I’d enjoy it. Luckily I didn’t have the strength to move my legs.
Our bags were transported to the next B&B and we had a guide throughout. We also had the option to tell the guide that we were toast and could we please just get a ride in the car the rest of the way? But we both felt like we just had to suck it up and do it to prove some idiotic point to God knows who. So we did it. 12.5 miles. We had blisters by the end of it and we came to our senses & told the guides we needed a day off. We also decided that we’d aim to walk half the distance everyday. That’s still a solid 6-10 miles a day, which I think we can manage.
