    New question here. crossing the alps -any advice?

    i am going to do a "alpencross" in july

    the trip will lead us from munich to somewhere in the vicinity of venice, italy.
    alltogether it will be about 280 miles and 24000 foot climbing in 6 days.
    (what makes it a pretty small alpencross but definitely big enough for me)

    i'am going to do that with my new 5spot which i dont have yet
    but should arrive in a few days I HOPE

    any tips from experienced turner owners?

    spare parts to take ?
    (try to get some spare legs and lungs for me but what about the spot?)
    things that are likely to brake?
    things to be tweaked on new 5 spots?

    spare hangers

    Take some spare hangers. Turner hangers seem to be a bit more fragile than others. I certainly know I've have enough hassles fiding replacements in Korea or sending for them from the US.

    Have fun on your ride. Take some great photos for us.
