Shvil Yisrael

Today I did some shopping. We still have lots to prepare before we set off on our hike. We still haven't bought maps, or other important stuff. Shvil yisrael is a hike that goes from the northernmost tip of Israel, to the southernmost. Its about 600 miles long, and its supposed to take more then a month. We intend to complete it in a little more then two weeks. The plan is to walk the entire day, and try to cover at least thirty miles a day. Its gonna be fun. Its probably gonna be hard too. Especially in the desert. The entire second half of Israel, all the way to Eilat is desert, and theres only four places to refill water throughout the whole desert.
We were gonna leave a while back, but not all my friends who were coming were able to fit it into their schedule. Therefore we're gonna leave right after Tisha Be'av. Hopefully there won't be any wars this summer. Otherwise we would have to sneak around soldiers and barricades to get around. (not to mention rockets and bombs, cuz then people get nervous). Since I'm gonna be carrying a minimum of ten liters of water a day, I'm not gonna have room for much else. So I'm gonna have to be selective in what I pack. A camera is probably important, as is a tent and sleeping bag.Lets see, Food Ok..... Uh.. Toilet paper.. What else? Maybe a bar of soap. Its pretty useful, for brushing teeth and cleaning everything. Theres got to be more, I'm sure I'm forgetting something. I'll have lots of time to get ready, we're not leaving for another nine days. Till then theres plenty to do.

jeff- ur rite, but 4 my purposes id rather have something lighter. ive been trying 2 buy a white handkerchief, but cant seem 2 locate 1 in this county.

socialworker/frustrated mom said...

I don't think you could possible bring enough water, do try and include water hikes to stay cool, have a blast and I second calvin that you are crazy but we already know that:)WE expect a full report with lots of pics and videos.

doodlehead said...

i cant promise but hopefully il take pics and stuff.

Calvin and Hobbes said...

Yeah...if there are no pix up i'm gonna be really mad...
and SW, I heard about this hike a while ago...

doodlehead said...

my camera batteries mite not last 2+ weeks. im not gonna have any outlets in a tent u understand.

Calvin and Hobbes said...

Yeah, we get that. Darn. I'd lend you batteries. As long as you can take SOME pictures, then we'll be fine. But don't lose your camera or get it stolen. That's not fun to do. BTDT.

Ben-Yehudah said...

B"H WOW! You're really gonna do this?! Um,...yeah...water's important. I hope you bring a camera, so I can go with you,...sort of. Don't forget your phone adapters, for when you're near a plug. Trade off having your phones on. Jeff's absolutely right about the towel, but also don't forget that Arabs are NOT "mostly harmless." Watch out for orcs, too. The wood elves in the Galil also don't like strangers stomping through their territory, so go around.

doodlehead said...

il keep that in mind. my phone will probably b off the entire time.

Calvin and Hobbes said...

Oh, that's actually smart. So like, your mom won't be able to call you when you're hanging off a cliff and you won't have to have a totally normal conversation with her. :)

doodlehead said...

she doesnt call me much. except if he has 2 tell me s/t important, then she can leave a message. i already told her im gonna b hiking so she knows im not gonna b reachable.

Calvin and Hobbes said...

You have a cool mom!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rafi G said...

good luck. I always wanted to do shvil yisrael... one day....

oongesetzed said...

according to my calculations, 600 miles at 30 miles a day comes out to 20 days which excluding Shabbos should be over 3 weeks. But it shouldn't be too hard to get back for Rosh Hashana. Good Luck! p.s. Are you taking your computer along?

doodlehead said...

calvin- ye, shes the only 1 i have.
rafi- its never 2 late
oong- sorry i dont do math. we intend 2 do it, hopefully we make it w/o dying. i'm not taking anything extra. u kno how much 10 liters of water weighs? (me neither, but it gets heavy on ur back pretty fast)

Calvin and Hobbes said...

That's one way of looking at it....and don't take your laptop, it'll just get stolen again and then you'll have to get another new one.

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic [url=http://gsmmind.ru/english]free porn movies online[/url] is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
