    Thanks Kazrobbo ... avoiding Covid and waiting for the Vaccine(s) then CaminoGO is my approach. BTW "Red66" ... I have worn out my Keen boots in the last 10 months of extended training (~860 Km on mostly hard surfaces). I will buy the same Keen Boot in January 2021 for a ~planned Sept21 Camino 🤞

    COVID Getting the "run around"...

    Today 19 May 2020 I managed to talk to Qatar Airways. First they told me I was to get a Voucher. I said I had already requested a Refund. Long story short they said I would get a Refund in 28 days.

    Program alert for Aussies

    "Semper Avanti" is something my grandfather has always said - he says it all the time. It means Ever Forward and Always Ahead. And it has become the most important philosophy in my life. Ever forward: Is a command. I relate and warm to this. Thanks KAZ

    COVID Postponing Our Flights

    I too am in a bind with Qatar Airways. They offer to reSchedule or 12 mth Voucher. Until there is proven anti-Coronusvirus Vaccine (and I have been given it) I will not be traveling o/s. Qantas seems to be offering an easier way to help us out of this.
