    700 km, which route?

    Have you considered the Camino Labienago from Ponferada to Santiago? Its well marked and very few pilgrims. Its a great way to walk into Santiago without all the crowds.

    Trail runners: Altra or Brooks, or Hoka????

I know everyone in the states swears by them but I don't see it either. I always wear boots on the Camino...

    COVID New start dates?

    Hey Dave, I'm hoping for end of September/October as well. I gotta have something to look forward to weather it happens or not. Just canceled a 5 May start date.

    I can relate! Being a retired Paratrooper I have many foot issues. Keep it simple! 1. I get cortisone injections prior to each Camino. I've walked 7 thus far. I will return for 3 more in May. 2. I too take orthodics. I also take the original inserts in case my feet swell and need more room...

    Raincoat or poncho?

    Both! A lightweight wind/rain jacket for wind and light rain and a poncho for the heavy stuff
