Nice comprehensive answer! Unfortunately you hit me by some minutes as I was just formulating quite the same, so the upvote goes to you.

comment What precautions are needed for caving
I don't know what type of cave it is, but going there without an experienced person might be not the best idea. Although some of the rope techniques are similar to those used in climbing, the caving guys have developed lots of special techniques for problems that climbers never have and therefore never learn about. Therefore doing your first caving trip by rappelling into a cave that should have another exit but maybe you have to jumar back does not sound like a safe and easy first time trip to me.

comment Information about E2 trail
I don't think the question you reference is comparable here. The referenced question asks for a very limited topic (More or less "How to treat a snake bite without immediate access to medical facilities?") While in your case it's a bit of everything: some administrative stuff, some logistics, some general stuff... I highly appreciate the idea to have all information in one spot but I don't think the Q&A format here is the right place to get this done.

What about splitting this question into several more focused ones? If I would plan to write an FAQ about some long distance walk for a touristic website, nearly all your questions would be part of this FAQ. As most of them (except maybe the phone provider question) might require more than a "Yes/No" or "Do X" answer, it surely might be stuff for several questions.
