    Hi Everyone,
    This question has probably been asked before so please accept my apologies for asking it again. I would like to buy a small propane fuel cell for my camp stove in SJPDP. I like my morning ginger tea. Is there a store in SJPDP that sells camping supplies like fuel cells? Thanks!!

    I'm not sure what a fuel cell is, but there IS a ferreteria on the last street to the right before you walk under the arch on your way out of town. They do have some camping supplies there.

    There is also a pilgrim suuply store on the main street just east of the bridge. Not sure if they would have what you want...but he does have a pretty good inventory of basic stuff like Altus ponchos, walking sticks, water bottles, shirts, pants, etc.
    A good place to get the last minute thing or the Altus poncho you could not locate before you left. :wink:

    From your note, I'm not sure where you plan to do your brewing up (at the lodging or on the walk later in the morning). But if you were planning to brew up at the lodging, perhaps just a small electric immersion heater would be sufficient? It would be much much lighter than carrying a stove and fuel canister. Just a thought.

    Good post, Annie. That shows the great little shop nicely.

    It is a good spot for anyone who can't find something at home or to get a last minute hat or something. Keep it in mind as it is easy to find.

    Probably in Pamplona. That is the first major city after the French-Spanish border.

    you can make a google- search using ``tiendas de deportes pamplona`` (or any other city) and you will find some sporting/camping stores.

    When in Pamplona I did some shopping here (they sell Altus rain gear,too) situated about 100 m from the camino close to hotel Eslava:

    DEPORTES BASATI KIROLAK - PAMPLONA
    Servicios: TIENDA DE DEPORTE.
    ESPECIALISTAS EN MONTAÑA

    Calle RECOLETAS 8
    31001 , PAMPLONA , NAVARRA |

    tel 948212345

    This one in Sarria with onlinestore http://www.peregrinoteca.com

    Thanks for all your responses!! Looks like I should be able to find the camping stove fuel I am looking for.
