    Dave, wonder how many on here even know what your Badge is? Few. If any.

    I never tell anyone on the Camino I am retired Army. Army '64 - '94.
    Aviation then MI.

    Flew UH-1s in Vietnam. Retired WO.

    Seeing you are from WA...guess was at Fort Lewis before.

    Again, when I am on the Camino I never tell anyone I am retired. Or my past.

    Grew up in Spain. College states. US Army. Back in Spain now.

    Hello David. I'm sure it is you myself and my walking friend Anne met on 21st April 2017 at Alcuescar Touristico Los Olivos (service station) on VDLP. ( two Irish women). We spent a lovely evening together chatting and drinking at that place. Thought we would see you along the route again and so sorry we didn't. Would love to be in contact again. K & A

    Completed the Camino with my wife Stacey on 6 Nov 2017. Highlight was rescuing a lost kitty in the O'Cebreiro to Fonfria area; dropped it off in front of a barn door, a little girl heard the cat howling, came out and got it. Happy ending for all.

    This is great news,
    I notice you took 6 days to Muxia ,via Finisterre , the correct amount according to our records
    However if you can assist slow , take it all in oldies , on the Ingles Khiker9 it would be appreciated.
    We got used to using the bags when we commenced in Le Puy many years ago.
