      Yes, but I haven't used them enough to know how long they will last. On my April camino, I am taking two pairs - New Balance X840 SR - The clunky black leather "walking" version. This provides the most stiffness and support and they seem to be...

      Hi! Great info, thanks. Sounds like my feet also (with a neuroma in each foot thrown in for good measure). Have you tried the brooks max yet? I tried them on today, and they were rather comfortable (even in standard width). But I doubt whether...

      Maartje1 replied to the thread Planning?.
      Thanks so much! I was indeed thinking of lightweight emergency food to always have at hand to get me through the day, and restock when needed. I am bringing a quilt (plus maybe one of them silver emergency blankets) even though the thought of...

      Some of the albergues were closing this last October earlier than posted. May have been a fluke but if you contact them a day ahead you’ll know who is open. Plenty of private accommodation with exception of only a couple of stages if you get in a...

      I will probably be doing the Madrid this October. All the less traveled routes need a little planning, as you said. You do need to check distances to see if you need to bring food and if there will be stores open on the stage you are walking to...

      Maartje1 replied to the thread Planning?.
      Thanks for your extensive response! Great tip regarding the last stage into SdC. My trip home is already fixed (but in case of desperate need could be changed). Since this is my first Camino the first four days will most likely give me some...

      Hi Maartje1, I walked from Madrid last May. My preparation is much like Trecile’s. But just a heads up — accommodation and food on the Madrid takes a bit more planning than the Frances or some other caminos. I pre booked through Sevilla, as...

      Maartje1 reacted to DTCamino's post in the thread Planning? with Thank you Thank you.
      I just did that walk in September and booked private accommodations nearly the whole way which was unnecessary as the daily pilgrim count is low enough that the albergues always had room. The takeaway from the Madrid is there are a couple of...

      I plan pretty much the same way that you do. In order to decide how much time I'll need I make a spreadsheet with proposed stages, then I add 5 - 7 days to this to account for accident or injury, or just changing my mind.
