  • EpilogueYoni Garry and I have a Whattsapp group that is named "the shvil pensioners". Besides the self-deprecating name and insight into the centrality the shvil has\had to our friendship, we now indeed are shvil pensioners. But as we all know, life doesn't...
  • 58th Day (The End)On 14 February 2009 we set out from kibbutz Dan on Israel's Northern border, unsure of what lay ahead, thinking that we would be finished in 4 years. And here we were, 22 March 2016, on our way to the last leg of our journey. This gives the term "fas...
  • 55th Day (Grumpy Old Shvillers)
    on Feb 12, 2016
    We awoke without the pressures of the day before. We'd had a good dinner, slept in good accommodations for the 2ndnight in a row and were facing a short 13 km jaunt across the Timna National Park.  We even got to sleep in till 5.15, since the en...

    If we were to compare shvil yisrael to astronomy, then it resembles one of the star constellations - a series of straight lines joining up in a pattern. Our shvil yisrael, however, would resemble the big bang, a random collection of parts being throw...

    36 hours away, 9 hours driving, 10 hours walking,  840 km driving, 30 km walkingSounds insane? To me too. The things we have to do to finish the shvil. Initially we had wanted to hike for 4 or 5 days in order to get the majority of what remains...

  • 48th day (4 Km)
    on Nov 6, 2013
    With much fanfare and ado, after almost a year and a half of shvil dormancy, we arose at 4 in the morning, met at Manof at 5 (a bit after…I was late) and headed to the deep south for 2 days of our usual, and unusual fun and games. I have to admit,...

  • 47th day (Further Than Expected)
    on May 4, 2012
    Benad was ready and waiting at 5 a.m., leading Yoni and his car to the end point, then returning him to us so we could walk out of Mitzpeh Ramon. Today's leg was an unexpected bonus. Yesterday's extra, unplanned 15 km on the shvil allowed us today to...
  • 46th Day (Change In Plan)
    on Apr 26, 2012
    Remember us? It's been a long time. For the first time in 3 years on the shvil we were forced to postpone a shvil leg due to the weather. Not unbearably hot desert weather but cold and wet March weather. And then along came Pesach and suddenly we've...
