When it was suggested I use walking poles for my GR20 trip, I was dead against the idea.
I did a lot of research into using them and it all pointed to using 2 poles.
When I saw some trekking poles in Aldi I decided to buy them , thinking I would hate them, but at least I could try them with out spending a lot of money.
Now I have to confess …….. I tried them out in the Alps over the week-end and thought they were brilliant , got on far better with them than I ever imagined I would.
Made going up the mountains and down far easier and I had no aches at all.
But I still sweated like a pig… 🙂 🙂
