      Great idea for the memory stick. I use a password manager that also stores all of my critical information. The PW mgr can be accessed from any other device (with my personal login creds, of course), so the I’m never without the ability to...

      I still keep all originals and cash in small 27 gram money bag strapped around waist under my pants. It goes into shower and into bed with me. It has AirTag sewn inside as does my pack. I sometimes hide memory stick in pack with data. Phone has...

      Great question, David! Probably best sums up ALL of the Camino prep issues! Like others, I had prepped, read & watched videos, trained (physically), packed & unpacked my backpack so many times, I could do it in the dark (which was the point!)...

      I agree with you. And who would take care of these facilities? The same Pilgrims who can’t pick up their own garbage?

      jrewins replied to the thread GPS maps for walking.
      Good summary and sound advice, df. I too, used both Wise Pilgrim and Camino Ninja on the CP last year, and because I am often distracted by Squirrels!, I needed both to return me to, and keep me on “track”. And, like you, I mourn the loss of...

      jrewins replied to the thread GPS apps — Find Penguins.
      I used Polar Steps on my first CF. It does a very good job of tracking your route, but the picture posting and text editing were buggy on my iPhone 11. As I recall, to begin route following, you have to create a “trip”, and then it will track...

      jrewins replied to the thread Folding up an Altus?.
      The Altus poncho is like the bottom fitted sheet on a bed…one can spend their entire life trying to figure out how to fold the d@#$ thing! My Osprey pack has a built- in rain cover with its own pocket, soooo; since the Altus covers the pack as...

      Have you ever tried to put a tent back into the ludicrously small bag it came in? Your Altus stuff-sack has done you a favour. It assessed your stress levels and concluded they required no further enhancement. Just roll the damned thing into...
