Vic's Big Walk Maps for Sale

Time to try to recover some of the enormous costs of the expedition.

We were horrified, but not too surprised, to find that we had lost 11,000 Euros on V-Force One, a vehicle we used for only 3 months. Many people thought it was supplied to us by one of our sponsors, but not so. We had to buy it and now we have sold it.

We used a large number of maps during the walk and of course they could be useful to somebody else.

These are the maps, with footpaths and Grandes Randonnees clearly visible, which I used while walking through France as part of my epic walk (as seen on TV) from the Pyrenees to Blackpool to raise funds for Pancreatic Cancer Research.

The maps are all in excellent condition. They have my route marked on them in yellow highlighter and possibly some written notations. But otherwise they are unused. I was unable to use them en route because of my vision problems. They were only used for pre-planning my journey.

They are from the IGN Serie Bleue Cartes de Randonnee series, Lots of detail, 1 cm = 250 metres. I can sell them individually or, as a pack, they would get you from Mirepoix in the Ariege to Caen/Ouistreham in Normandy. The normal price is from 8 Eruos to over 10 Euros. I am selling them for 4.00 Euros each, including postage within Europe.
