    My sleep sack "innovation"

    Fantastic idea. I like the wide side opening and I suppose you turn the sheet inside out if you want the opening on the other side and the pillow in the same spot?

    Junta albergue kitchens

    Mostly this is the case but there are a few exceptions such as Monte do Grozo.

    Help selecting Boots for our Walk.

    Thanks to @Kanga, I bought a pair of waterproof socks for an early spring camino. I walk in quick dry trail runners and got last minute heebie jeebies about walking through snow.

    Question about Altras

    This photo was taken in 2015 of one lonely pair of trail runners. Doubt I’ll be able to take a photo like this again.

    Peregrino Torture Tower

    I thought it was yet more proof that the route planner for the CF has a sense of humour. :cool:

    Anyone seen this yet?(mainly Oz)

    I bought a copy from the author’s website some years ago. He walked Le Puy to Santiago in two goes. He walked in memory of his wife who suffered from severe depression. I enjoyed the book mostly because it was a realistic account of a pilgrimage...
