Just finished packing. Will normally start from Nice on 18 July 2023. I have 18,8 kg of food (without packaging). I'll carry 2.5L at the start and my pack will (compared to my usual expeditions or long FKT) be around 32kg. Happy as I aimed below 35kg. You can follow soon: or on Instagram/FB fan page.
