      MesaWalker replied to the thread Night stage recommendation?.
      Another option, rather than walking all night, especially in the heat, is just to get out at 4:00 or 5:00 in the morning and walk 2-3 hours in the morning in the dark. We did that daily during very hot weather in September last year on the VdlP...

      Day 1: Ponferrada to Villavieja As usual, life has a habit of changing plans so we found ourselves on the Invierno a month later than expected. Regardless though, we are happy to finally get started! Day 1 was a hard one right from the off. We...

      MesaWalker replied to the thread Oseira Monestery.
      The albergue is beautiful. It's in a standalone building on the grounds of the monastery with walls of large stones visible both inside and outside the building. Inside it's comfortable, clean and typical of newer Xunta albergues. Like other...

      MesaWalker replied to the thread Oseira Monestery.
      By the way, if you can confirm when the last tour of the day starts at Oseira Monastery (I think it varies by time of year), you can show up in time for that, tell the person in the gift shop who sells the tickets that you'd like to attend...

      MesaWalker replied to the thread Oseira Monestery.
      I have never heard of anyone staying in the Oseira Monastery itself. There is a Xunta albuquerque onsite, which is beautiful and comfortable and renovated in one of the old, separate buildings on the grounds. That's where we stayed last fall...

      MesaWalker reacted to BikeHikeChai's post in the thread Liner Socks with Like Like.
      The inner soles that I use as replacements offer much better shock absorption and generally hold the foot better. However the key question for an individual is “does this work with my foot?”. Using a different inner sole and/or thicker socks...
