I've read about the Oregon Coast Trail but, no...
I mean the 2,170 mile Oregon Trail route the pioneers in covered wagons traveled from East to West (United States) in the 1860's.
I live in Oregon and walking near/on a windy beach and/or walking on Hwy. 101 is not in the least bit appealing to...
I've been desperately searching around for some sort of Camino-like experience in my own country (U.S.) in case Covid still has the world closed down.
Problem is, every long distance trek here involves packing along food & cooking gear, along with everything else you'd need for a month or...
I daily swing between total dispare of things ever opening up for another Camino and detailing my plans for my next Camino.
It's almost like a sickness.

It's a poor substitute for the real Caminos, as I never come...
I had (sometimes verbal) conversations with my original hiking stick I'd picked off the ground in the SJPP park.
I discovered the stick was a "He" and I named him Stick. He was my buddy, my pal, my emotional support and I became nearly hysterical when I thought I'd lost him in a small town...
Frankly, I never thought about the distance. It's like eating an elephant...it's one bite at a time.
There'll be days when you'll think you're nuts for putting yourself through it. Days when you'll cry..just because.
Days when you're thrilled with the beauty & the awesomeness of it all. Days...
My husband was Catholic and the priest said the same thing about ashes being in a sanctified place.
I ignored him.
Since his family was from there, the Mournes were the most sanctified place for my Irish husband's ashes.
