Nah, mines and bandits will be fine I'm sure, from what I've read. I doubt they would have set up this walk and publicised it so widely if there were real problems and the I've read no reports at all of anyone experiencing such.
It is the camping I'm really trying to work out: can you camp next to the accommodation? I much prefer tent to gite/dorm/refuge. Happy to wild camp but shower needed every few days.
Has anyone managed to find proper detail of each 'stage' i.e. distance, elevation etc?
As it's shaping up this year it's back to Corsica for the Mare a Mare Nord. Then 2016 will be one of Peaks of Balkans, Slovenian High Mountain Route or GR11 depending on work and some very awkward dates for other people's weddings right in the middle of the best walking time!
