Trip Planning

What do I need to know? Lots! But not nearly as much as you might think. Many people are put off because they think there is so much you need to know, so much planning and preparation, that they get bogged down in the morass of information they THINK they need, and never do it, because it all just seems too hard.

Some planning will make the trip easier, safer and more fun, so dive in!
