I hope this doesn’t seem like a silly or overly-logical piece of advice.  I would just suggest that when we do this hike, let’s all make sure and have a good, solid cane we can use with ease.  For example, I don’t think I’d use a telescopic cane simply because it might telescope on you at the strangest times if you’re not careful.  We don’t know how smooth or rough this trail is going to be, so those of us who use canes want to make sure we’re using them properly so as to detect the obstacles we might encounter.
