What was the one item that you brought with you that no newbie would think of?

Secret Camino de Santiago Item

The question (from 2006) was:

Okay, I’ve got all my gear together… or at least I think I do. Veterans of the Camino, I ask you this question… what is the secret coolest item to have with you… the one that no newbie would ever think to bring…

I’ve already got a section of thread and safety pins for stringing up a clothesline…

Anything else that’s a “secret” must have?

Read all about the Coolest most Secret items pilgrims brought with them on the Camino de Santiago.

    I would have thought a roll of toilet paper would be a good idea, if only because that way you don’t need to worry if there is none available because others got there before you.

    I brought Sports Beans (made by Jelly Belly) and loved them.

      little sandwich bags ,take up no precious space and could be handy, am thinking of the nasty used toilet paper on some parts ,
