Hi Blueberry, as far as I know I havent received a mail from you yet. My comment was sort of tongue in cheek, I live in Cape Town and a lot of things need to fall in place before I can commit (have been on many DGT invite lists but they always fell through).
That said, please keep sharing your planning on this page. How many passes have you done? Have you done a shorter Northern traverse or similar? Resupply plans? How many days walking? Do you have a specific route planned, i.e. “traditional” scenic traverse or a more straight line? What do you use to navigate with? What pack weight are you looking at? Do you have other people keen that you have hiked with before? Given that you are in KZN / that side of the world, it may be helpful to post on vertical endeavour.com and perhaps even meet with one of the many experienced people in KZN that have done the DGT.
I have spent a lot of time thinking / planning a virtual DGT, but have only had one 6 day hike in Cathedral peak so by all means I am a beginner when it comes to the high berg. Have lots of experience in the WC mountains though, am a guide on Table Mountain, have guided on the Rim of Africa etc.
