    Should I stay 2 nights in sjpdp ?

    You have a very good point there. It's hard to get accommodations during summer. I just got denied by L'esprit du chemin. Now I'm looking for another nice albergue. If not I will stay in a nice hotel but then I will miss the experience of being with other pilgrims on my first night. I am in the...

    Should I stay 2 nights in sjpdp ?

    I would love to buy my poles here in new York but I don't want to check-in my backpack. I want to be in and out as fast as I can and avoid the risk of my bag getting lost. I like your advise on waiting till the day to decide. I won't know how I will feel until then. However, I do know that I...

    How exciting. I might run into you then. I made reservations @ L'esprit du chemin so I can stay the night of 8/08/13 but they no longer have a space for me. Maybe I'll just find a nice place to stay on my first night so I can rest and get over the jet lag.

    Training for the Camino

    I'm walking backwards on an incline on the treadmill with my pack on to train for mountain descents. Eccentric muscle contraction is what we need. I also do the stairmasters and of course strengthening and lots of stretching. I got knee pain of too much high impact exercises I did last may. So...

    Long sleeves shirt during summer

    Thanks. I'm bringing both long sleeves and short sleeves. I found Columbia shirts with UPF 50 sun protection, omnifreeze ( Claims that fabric reacts to sweat and makes you coo) as well as moisture wicking. I found arm sleeves made of same fabric so I can wear it with my short sleeves or take off...

    Long sleeves shirt during summer

    Good advise on the white. I initially preferred white as it always feels cooler than dark colored fabric.

    Long sleeves shirt during summer

    How about a light weight pants that converts into shorts? I got the lightweight patagonia solimar pants. Its so lightweight and converts into capri. I also got the Macabi skirt. It converts into pants and shorts but looks funny. I will probably just use it as a skirt. It's very comfortable.

    I'm walking the Camino Frances from SJPP August to September and intend to wear lightweight , moisturewicking longsleeves ( capilene 1 shirts) with SPF 15 . Is it too hot? Should I opt to wear short sleeves? Love to hear your thoughts on this.
