There is always a light back bag where the take minimum (gourd, food of race, camera…) All the luggage and food are transported by the mules. When a medical problem (distortion for example), it is always possible to call upon a mule. However, it should be known that the ground is not flat, that it is necessary sometimes to go up to climb a collar, that you will find certain stages a little long… In short, you will have physical feelings, it is certain, and it is necessary to have the desire and the spirit of hiking and walking.
