  • Dominic Mcg

    This looks amazing, lots of questions... How did you keep all of your gear charged? How dangerous was the walk? How did you keep track of where you were and where you were going (AKA not get lost)? What contingency plans did you have for if you became ill or were injured? What languages did you learn for/during the trip and did you know Mandarin/Cantonese before you started the first walk? How much did it cost overall for the whole walk? How did you select your route? etc...

    I'm 24. Fat, has anxiety and deals with depression. I'm trying to establish my life and feel I have to get myself together before doing somthing like this... But maybe I have to do something like that in order to get myself together? What should come first, the chicken or the egg?

    • Christoph Rehage

    • Christoph Rehage
      Christoph Rehage  Год назад

      Hey buddy, I don't know what to say, but I'll try anyway. 24 is a young age. Being fat is bad if you want to change it, but if you feel fine with how you are, then it's totally okay. Depression, however, is a serious issue and needs treatment. I don't think a walk can help much with that. But maybe, after treatment, you will go on a walk anyway, not because you want to improve yourself, but just because you want to have fun. And fun it is! I wish you all the best, dude. The world is waiting for you.

    Now you can start the Kashgar-Hotan-Qakilik-Guazhou route. The deserted National Highway 313 has no auto traffic, and would be good for you.
    However, do at your own risk.

    I read this selfhelp book and the tip it gave to me is that when you really want to do something that seems out of reach, mark a date. doesn't matter when that date is, just be realistic and be ready to work hard for it. And last year I made my first, but short backpacking trip which lasted 5 weeks, but it won't be my last.
