Hello /trv/
I keep it simple, i will walk along Amazon river in my lifetime, probably somewhere between 2020-2022. I just started planning and preparing.
For now i need to decide whether to start in Belem and go to river source, or the other way.
Also, can anyone experienced in such journeys can give me estimated amount of money i need to buy supplies beforehand.
All tips, tricks, questions and stuff greatly appreciated.
>>
You want to walk along the Amazon by yourself? How far are you expecting to go?

Because that river is twice the length of the Appalachian Trail but with a worse climate, horrible terrain and far less opportunity to get out/get supplies. And it will take you at least six months, probably a year.

Ed Stafford did it. I remember reading an article about it a few years ago so I googled it. He's an ex-British Army officer and SAS. It took him over two years and is considered pretty much the most extreme expedition anyone has done in modern times. Just so you know what you are getting yourself into.

Try /out/, also bring a pack mule.

>bring a pack mule.
That would be considered animal cruelty.

OP, you have no idea what you're in for. Ref. >>1070882

>wanting to die
If the river won't kill you the jungle will...if that don't do it then the tribes will.
You have no idea what lies deep in the jungles of the Amazon and believe me you don't wanna know.

I want to do this just to find "the city of gold" and become a billionaire
>>
>>1070873
OP here. I'm in it not for gold. I just need to do it. Going alone would be unwise, i will need to get local guide or few guides, and some assistance to carry food supplies. Also, my research shown me that i will pay a small fortune for vaccines agains SA diseases.

>wanting to die
There are far easier ways to off myself, fuck that. If i survive, noone will ever take such amazing experience from me.
>>1071031
I don't know who you are and why are you trying to appear as me, but please leave if you want to spread dissent and retardation.
>>
>>1071166
do you have some survival xp or just doing it for the lol?
>>
>>1071329
I have some basic survival experience, surviving up to 20 days in wilderness is nothing to me.
On the other hand, we are discussing 800 days in the wilderness. Preparation is the key. I have plenty of time, I just have to plan accordingly.
For now I require good maps of Amazon Basin to plan my long walk. I shall procure them next month when I get some free time.

Do you know the Slovenian who swam all Amazon river?

There are two biggest cons:

>candiru fish

check out the documentary about Ed Stafford's hike "Walking the Amazon".

How much of portuguese/spanish do you speak?

Enjoy getting mauled by jaguars

Saved for my collection of posts that make sense on /trv/, but would seem silly on /sp/.

>>1070882
There's a documentary I watch on this a long time ago, probably 5 years back.

Hey brother,
check out the book "Walking the Amazon" by Ed Stafford. He might have some interesting things for you since he did what you are planning.

I guess your direction would depend on the seasons, your visas, etc. But I think that it is easier to just go downstream, maybe i have ocd about that.
