I am looking to make my first attempt on the BGR this summer. I live down south sadly, so the usual problems of training and getting time to recce the route apply.
I have a question about pacers.
Before I ask the BGR community to help me on my own attempt, I would like to support someone else with their effort, either manning a road-station crossing or (preferably) bag-carrying on a leg or two.
- Is this forum the best place for me to lookout for people who want someone to help them?
- Is there scope for a separate website matching up people volunteering to help and people asking for help?
- What should I do, when asking for help with my own attempt in the summer, to ensure that I don't annoy people who I am asking to generously give up their time and expertise in exchange for a bit of suffering with a stranger from down south in the hills?
- Is anyone planning an early summer attempt who would like me to support them?
Thank you all in advance,
