3) I have an Osprey Atmos 65 from climbing My Whitney. Is the general consensus that a 65L is too big, or is it still Ok if it's 1/3 empty? (trying not to purchase a med sized pack that I might not use again).
4) Vibram Five Fingers - I LOVE mine. I have 3 pairs for different activities. What's the thought of these on the Camino?

You may spend as much money for a day in Paris as you will spend your first week on the Camino, and end up disliking the French, too! Everyone is different, of course, but many pilgrims find that big cities at the end of a camino are real attitude spoilers. At the beginning, they may also be a distraction from becoming acclimated to the village experience of a rural walk through France and Spain.If I land in Paris, why not enjoy the city for at least a day.
I have never had a negative word spoken to me in several months in rural France, and have never had a friendly word in Paris unless it was associated with my wallet. Just saying ....

WOW! That's almost half of what my entire pack weight will be - including pack!

You shamed me into re evaluating my pack! lol
I bought an Osprey Talon 33 at .92 kg
I think I will like it better and I'm sure my old dogs will appreciate it!!!

V, why are you returning your Talon? Was there damage to it?
Thanks again gang,
