    It probably tells you somewhere but how big are the drop bags? I can then try and get stuff organised beforehand.

    Assuming the bags are the same - about the size of a Tesco bag for life. Easily get in change of clothes including shoes and loads of food in each one if you want to.

    Last time I carried some of my own food (energy bars / dates etc) from the start. At Cormayeur and Champex I left some more food to eat their, and some to carry with me. You could get away with taking none of your own but I found the supplied food in 2005 not to be the best. So I would recommend it. The small amount of extra weight for a couple of energy bars and some gels won’t make much difference. But will subsidize the food on offer, of which the choice is to some degree out of your control (unless you have someone support you).

    Water can be got at the checkpoints, of which there are plenty.

    Any first aid stuff or things that you specifically want I would take for yourself . I.e. some foot care stuff at Cormayeur (it is a long decent on hard ground down to this stop as well).
