Actual content to our blog

As you probably noticed – it has been a while since I last updated our blog.
To be honest, updating the blog has become hard as both Kareene and I are very tired at the end of the day…
I will write more at our next break.
I can tell you that meanwhile we managed to walk 385km out of the 1000 we have…

New images and new logo

Tomorrow (today actually…) we are returning to the Shvil after a 4 days break we were forced to take due to the rough weather in the north.

I took the time to try and work on the blog, as you can see there are still 4 stubs for me to fill in later.

I uploaded some pictures and created a logo. I hope you like it…

The logo image was taken at the top of Mount Meiron, if you’ll look closely you could see the snowy top of the Hermon mountain

To blog or not to blog

This is the question…
One of the reasons Kareene and I are taking this adventure is to distance ourselves even for a little while from the world of bits and TV shows and modern society. This comes in direct conflict with my basic desire, as a logphile  to document everything and maintain this blog.
I believe the middle ground would be to blog every other day or so. This will enable us to keep a certain distance from the modern world (and preserve valuable battery life…)

Another issue I am facing is that I chose English as the language of this blog. Fluent as I may be this is not my native language so I am not sure if the posts would be as witty as you might expect. Besides – our slogan from couch potatoes to thru hikers sounds good only in English…

Enough bullshit and back to business – our first night in Kibbutz Dan was scary… I managed to overheat our brand new titanium pot and scorched it a little bit and on the way burnt a perfectly good soop…
We need more practice with our new stove i guess because it can be very powerful… (when i say we I of course mean the royal we as Kareene told me to take it easy with the fire…)

Today would be our first hike in the shvil so I will break my blogging every other day rule and let you know how we did (perhaps with some pics this time…)

Godspeed to us,
Gil, Kibbutz Dan, The Gym, center toilet.

Still getting ready

After months of preparations we are about to leave our house and take a bus (!@#$) to Kibbutz Dan.

Kareene is looking at hat patterns as she wants to knit herself a nice warm hat and I am working on the blog.

We still have some things to do, hopefully the 6 hours we have before we have to leave would be enough.
