    Hot weather camino questions

    Finding the right sandals is a long process. I own the xero sandals, Chacos, Keens, and Tevas. Currently testing the Tevas. I wonder sometimes if long distance walking just requires socks with any brand of sandal. Shoutout for the xero terraflex which are fantastic trail runners. Best toebox...

    I actually own these. I love them, but you can feel every single rock through the sole. But they might work on pavement days. My trail runners are xeros. I love their shoes.

    Are these the shoes you used when your main hiking sandal started to hurt? If they’ll work as a sometimes trail shoe that would be awesome. 7.4 oz for a size 11 is fantastic. I’m in either an 11 wide or a 12 (I’m 6 ft tall).

    No way! Okay then that confirms it for me. I’ll definitely take two pair of sandals and a pair of shower shoes. Do the plastic birkies weigh less than crocs?

    I also tend to wear socks with sandals due to strap rubbing. Wrightsocks. #twinning 😆 The other thing I’ve noticed is no matter what shoes I bring, my feet are happier if I swap to different shoes halfway through the day. I’m knocking around bringing two pair of sandals rather than a trail...

    Lol I also think we might be twinning on packing lists. Your list was so similar to mine it kind of gave me confidence that I’m on the right track. Idk what to think about the sealskinz, if they’d work for me? Part of the reason I love sandals is that on descents my toes don’t bang the end of...

    Hot weather camino questions

    I’ve thought about it, but like @trecile it’s the arm coverage I most need when I’m chilled post workout. And I need a full zipper rather than the UL quarter zips because I’ve noticed I tend to remove and then put it back on several times. Not too keen on the static hair that comes from quarter...

    Even with my extra layers and carrying my trail runners I’m still coming in at under 10% of my weight. And I carried a 28 lb pack FSO when backpacking last summer (it was a last minute decision so didn’t have time to get UL gear). I’m a bit of an obsessive gear weigher. 😆 I am just a little...

    I’m so glad I asked about this. I never would have guessed cold mornings. Definitely not dropping my cool weather layers now. Thank you!

    My packing list post mortem

    @trecile, thanks so much for linking this. Super helpful. I've been wondering about August September and sunburn. I've seen some recommendations to keep totally covered up, but like you I prefer something shorter (purple rain skirt for me). I've also been trying to decide if I should bring my...

    Non-EU immigration - Madrid airport.

    I’m not so sure there will be a deluge this summer. Not everyone has the option yet to be vaccinated. It will be interesting to see how rapidly camino traffic increases. I’m thinking ‘22 is the year that will be really busy. I’ve still got school aged kids at home but my husband will be working...
