      Curacion59 reacted to Bruce30017's post in the thread Backpack Pick with Like Like.
      I have an Osprey Atmos 50 that I am quite happy with - very comfortable with good hip belt and straps (hardly notice it) and ventilated shape (reduces back sweat). I bought the pack initially for the Camino, and used it on the Frances twice. It...

      FWIW... I have an ultralight pack and I don't think the brand is important (though it's a "leader" in the field). All the ultra-lights rely on the same design: absence of frame or much structure. In essence it's 4 sections of parachute material...

      1.00 star(s) Not what I was hoping for. If you are new and looking for a path from Lourdes to SJPD take a few hours at your computer on the Gronze site with your favourite translation app and create your own text file with the the translated gronze notes...

      If you haven't already purchased a pack, I have recommended a rule of thumb that will help you get into the right size range. First, take your walking weight (in kg), halve that and that number will be the size (in litres) that would be my start...

      Curacion59 reacted to CWBuff's post in the thread Scam - again.. with Like Like.
      Not entirely true. We in the IT business are constantly being "groomed" to be on a lookout for anything (basically in that case - it is a company email but of course the same with some common sense applies to our personals emails as well)...

      Curacion59 reacted to tjz's post in the thread Gortex or No -Gortex Shoes with Like Like.
      After years of hiking and running, I am a believer in non-gortex shoes. No matter what, your feet are going to get wet if the rain or puddles gets serious. You'll also get wet once you get warmed up and start sweating. But you'll dry out much...

      It's a common custom in several countries - France, Italy and Greece for example. Whilst I appreciate you don't want the waste, (and applaud you for it), it is a way for the restaurant to cover some of their costs. Especially important if you are...

      Now that you know that this is the local custom of how restaurant meals may be organized, can you not simply informed the waiter when the items are brought to the table? Instead of blaming them so harshly for their different approach for...
