    Dithering big time over Go decision.

    I am on the train to the airport. My Camino has begun!

    A Bit of a Crisis

    He found the documents Nathanael. He posted the good news later in the thread.

    A Bit of a Crisis

    Great news. You’ve been sorely tested. I’ve woke up with your bad news in my feed and I can’t tell you how quickly I scrolled down looking for resolution. So pleased for you. What a trial!

    One Month To Go :-)

    That was another great post Davebugg. Thank you so much for taking all that time to make it. You must get very in the zone when you write such posts, they are very detailed and lucid. I shall read both of them again later as the nerves are starting to compete with the excitement. I got a lot of...

    One Month To Go :-)

    That was a great post! I really enjoyed reading about how you spend the last hours in the build up to the grand depart. It was rather calming too. Do you have a plan in mind for the morning? Will it be an early start? You have your food for the day already bought I think? Will you stop at...

    Can I ship a wise pilgrim guide to another city in Spain?

    I agree. I’ve been super impressed by the wise pilgrim app.

    Weather next week... should I change my plans?

    That’s the second time I’ve done a double take when reading your comments! It’s the Ian reference. It makes me briefly look up and go huh?! What site are you using for the mountain forecasts. It doesn’t look too bad on the site I use.

    Weather next week... should I change my plans?

    On the accuweather.com site I'm seeing "spotty afternoon showers" and 28 degree C for Sunday 16th in SJPP. I'd be happy to take that.

    Weather next week... should I change my plans?

    What site are you looking at for that forecast? I'm starting the 19th so I kind of have a vested interest! I notice it's lovely and sunny by Pamplona all of that week, but that's about Day 4 and sunny weather there won't help in the hills!

    LIVE from the Camino A new threat to my pilgrim tolerance and zen-like state of relaxation

    If someone woke me at 5am by showering, I would wait for them to come out the shower and then I would drape my sleeping bag gently around their shoulders and return to my empty bunk. I would seek out the showeree later and apologise for not having a warmer bag.

    LIVE from the Camino A new threat to my pilgrim tolerance and zen-like state of relaxation

    That's messed up. I could not do that. The only way of getting positive thoughts out of a situation like this with such monsters of selfishness, is to think that they probably mess up like this in many aspects of their life. Because they simply don't have that self awareness. Therefore they miss...

    Making up questions just so you can post to make people jealous

    No problem. Maybe you can carry extra water and my marmite butty as I’m having everything couriered ahead

    14 Days to Go.... Checklist Checkoffs For the Day

    Just realised Davebugg that you will be just a day ahead of me. I stay at Roncevalles on the 19th. I'm getting a kind of occasional aching in the palms of my hand which I know is related to anxiety. However, nothing ventured nothing gained. I have a collection of shells and stones picked up from...

    Training for Camino - my worries

    15km is getting close to a regular day on the Camino if you are aiming to walk according to the Brierley book. The difference is that on the Camino you have all day to walk the distance you want. Not have to squeeze it in to a regular day at home. So, it will be easier. My training walks are...

    Training for Camino - my worries

    That 15km you did has put 15km of hard work into your feet. They may ache, but you have improved your foot fitness. Keep going and each walk will mean they will hurt less on the Camino. As per the other advice, don’t push too hard. You want to toughen up the feet but you don’t want to push too...
