      Lurch replied to the thread The Pilgrim’s Guide to Etiquette.
      I have been corrected by Mexicans who say that their country is also a United States. Now I just refer to myself as “de Los Estados Unidos del Norte”. As regards etiquette….a line from a 50s song, The Happy Wanderer…I tip my hat to all I see...

      Who would these authorities be??
    • Lurch
      If you mean trail maintenance, provision of facilities (water, toilets) - perhaps, in some areas, but that’s not what is under discussion. But accommodation? There are no "authorities responsible" ! Accommodation on the camino is not a right.

      Lurch replied to the thread Alternatives to Sarria to SDC.
      Interesting, I just finished walking the last segment of the Camino, from Pamplona to Santiago. At 79, not sure how many partial Camiinos I have left in me, but I really have an itch to go from Sarria to Santiago again. Been that route twice...

      Lurch replied to the thread Medication woes.
      2028!, I am not sure am going to be alive then, at 84. Let’s see here…sleep med, gut med, PTSD meds…(can’t go squirrely on the Camino, after all). Not too much to carry, for my usual 17-21 day journey. In the end, I find that I don’t need...

      Lurch replied to the thread Alternatives to walking if injured.
      First partial go-around on the Camino, 6 years ago, I messed up my back just before Rabanal del Camino, really bad. I was with two friends. We took a taxi to Tricastela, then walked the rest of the way to Santiago. Well, I walked as much as I...

      Lurch replied to the thread Yet another accommodation thread.
      Just came thru the Camino F, from Logrono to Ponferrada. No problems with hostels at all, in 2 instances I was the only occupant. Yes, you can worry, but your friend should be OK.

      Lurch replied to the thread Post-camino fitness.
      Returned 3 weeks ago from walking from Logrono to Ponferrada. Now at 5500 feet elevation. Not walking as much as I should, for me just laziness. Want to walk, but just too many things to do. Maybe next week…
    • Lurch
      From experience, a buttpack is not a large pack, maybe 12x14, at least the ones we used in the Nam. Used with the military suspenders, which are comfortable, the H suspenders may be able to accommodate a secondary pack, but not the Y suspenders...

      Lurch replied to the thread I did it- and feel like a winna!.
      You have years ahead of you…I am 79 and just finished the last 200+ miles, Logrono to Ponferrada. Started in 2018, did another 150 miles in 2021, and now done. Probably my last Camino, unless I can convince one of my kids to hike from Sarria...
