ahoy there...

its been around 4months i havent hit the wilderness and mi feet are itchin.. i´ve heard the trek from pertopolis to teresopolis is enchanting and close enough to conquer in 3/4days.. to and from rio..

So far im alone.. would love to have company.. as well as suggestions and tips on the whether i should stay a day or nite in pertopolis or teresoplis to have a look around.. dont know much about these places.. any must dos around the area... the weather.. or condition of the area after 6days of cats n kiwis(heavy rain)..

i have a tent for two.. and would be happy to share if any would like to come along.. i plan to do this during the week.. or weekend.. no fixed dates yet.. just goin with the flow.. if we have enough iterest.. would love to go in a group as well..

as well as if there are any other interesting overnight treks around.. would love to go dancin with the wolves..

thxxxxxxxx...

Hey Vic...
I´ve done this trekking twice,.. and it´s wonderfull.
But it´s not the best idea do at that season.... very rainy,....
In general people do that may/june/july....more dry...
You should leave Correas, near Petropolis, early in the morning,... walk all day and sleep at Pico do Açu. Following day,... continue and sleep near Dedo de Deus.
And at the third day, come down and arrive in the afternoon at the Sub-sede Parque Nacional da Serra dos Orgãos, just beside Terezópolis...
And I wouldn´t do it without an experienced guide. I mean... you can get lost on that way.... and if the weather is not O.K... it can be a litle beat dangerous....
But with a good guide and the weather not so bad,.. it´s an wonderfull trekking. I would like to repeat it ,.... but not now.
