      While you may have felt uncomfortable, this taxi driver was doing you a favor, and a very generous one at that. It seems that he's exactly the type of person that we talk about the Camino "providing" for us when in need, whether physical or...

      HoosierOldLady reacted to kelleymac's post in the thread Plantar Fasciitis with Like Like.
      After years of plantar fasciitis and seeing podiatrists and getting deep massages etc, by family physician recommended I go to a sports doctor. He gave me specific exercises to strengthen targeted muscles in my feet and I went to a physical...

      Haha, I took this route almost exactly a year ago and I meant to send a message to update the app. I took the path through the farmers field, down into a hardly-used path that was overgrown but clearly following the WisePilgrim path. I remember...

      HoosierOldLady reacted to Kirkie's post in the thread The forum, 20 years on. with Love - Red heart Love - Red heart.
      I can imagine that Ivar might wonder how the years have galloped by since he devised the project that 20 years ago became the Forum. It is of course a tribute to original values and ensuing adaptations that the standards have been maintained and...

      HoosierOldLady reacted to J Willhaus's post in the thread Albergue Etiquette with Like Like.
      Lessons and tips: 1. Don't converse in the bunk room. Take your conversations to the common area even when it isn't quiet hours. 2. In the morning gather all your things in the middle of your sleeping bag and carry it and your backpack to the...

      If you’re going to skip some, my choice would be the road from Molinaseca and Ponferrada. Road walking and boring. About 7k I think.

      HoosierOldLady reacted to trecile's post in the thread Your most valuable stamp with Like Like.
      @jungleboy helped me find the picture of my favorite sello. It's from Albergue Lamas in Pradela. When I was there in 2017 they didn't have an actual sello, so this one was hand drawn. You can see me with a ponytail walking up the hill.

      HoosierOldLady reacted to gerardcarey's post in the thread Snoring. AARRRGGGGHHHHH!!!! with Like Like.
      As a sometimes snorer, and one who has had his toe pulled on occasion, and who has investigated alleviation practices without permanent success, I would state as follows. If you are going to stay in a hostel realize as a fact that snorers come...

      This again? I'd say that the Camino can be an excellent first trip to Europe since you are in the company of so many others who are doing the same thing - everyone supports each other.

      HoosierOldLady reacted to C clearly's post in the thread Re: Current Lunch Prices with Like Like.
      This recommendation makes little sense to me. The Camino is an excellent trip for a first journey to Europe. Any halfway competent adult can handle the complexities! Yes, and if the OP was still learning to walk and had never left their house...
