Pabs is walking the Pyrenees

41702016_1567281620411175_r.jpegWelcome to the Pabs in the Pyrenees page.

Over the next couple of months I am trekking across the Pyrenees from Hendaye on the Atlantic coast to Banyuls sur Mer on the Meditteranean sea. The total distance is around 540 miles and the walk is known as the GR10. I hope to complete the whole length in around 50 days. I will be carrying all my equipment which will vary in weight from 40lb to 50lb depending on food stocks required.

I will be posting photos and videos and updates as I go, subject of course to signal strength.

I have been asked whether I was doing this as a charity event and after a lot of thinking i have decided that I would. The reason for my indecision was through fear of medical failure. For those that are not aware, I am a type 1 diabetic resulting from an episode of severe acute pancreatitis with total necrosis. This means multiple insulin injections and Creon tablets with all food and a requirement to check blood sugar levels every two hours.

Any money collected will be equally divided between two charities close to my heart; VIA (veteransinaction.org.uk) working with veterans with PTSD and Diabetes UK, (diabetes.org.uk).

I consider this a personal challenge with an add on to do some good at the same time for my chosen charities.

I'm sure you will learn more about me as the trip goes on so please feel free to contribute to any posts as I know there will be periods of highs and lows.

My regards and best wishes to you all
