      Your choices are just what I’ve used in all my Caminos without a blister. My two sucks are about the thickness of normal socks. I’m also old and it took many trots find the right combo. All my Caminos have been done with some style of Brooks...

      Well…… about $400 usd in socks and liners later and about 160 miles. I live in California near the Sierra mountains so we have some good trails and heat- I wanted to find my perfect combination for no blisters. I am an older dude who is on...

      This was my husband. So many thanks to all of my fellow pilgrims who stopped to help and to pray and to translate for me. He was doing what he loved. Thank you for the news article link.

      You can find two decent breakfasts in the US for $22?!! I need that restaurant! . Just been in USA a month and even Denny’s was coming in at $50 for two (including taxes and gratuities) for a couple of omelettes and coffee, Admittedly free...

      Have you priced an Egg McMuffin, coffee and oj at McDonalds lately? Probably $10 each. At least the coffees and Oj would taste good. Why do people just think everything should be cheaper on the Camino.
