I've had a miniscectomy on each knee. My routine for avoiding knee pain: do leg extensions (no more than halfway down) and leg curls while not hiking, travel as light as possible (including wearing running shoes), stay well-hydrated, and stretch often, esp calves.
Have a great hike!

Ohh also I was wondering, this has nothing to do with the transportation, but, does anyone have advice on what to do to prevent knee pain? I had surgery on my meniscus twice, I still run and its fine, it just gets sore now and then. I have a feeling that with this long hike that I need to do a little extra for it. Should I wear a knee brace? Should I take certain vitamins? My mom suggested MSM, but I wanted advice from real hikers :).
