    That’s quite right there are so many things that are ‘not necessary’! Each individual will have their own list. I have never walked with more than 6kg. This when ready, with water. As someone who has caught crypto on a Camino, I will carry a filtration straw with me. I really don’t care what...

    If only I knew! Symptoms take 2wks to emerge! Lol, yes of course. But, what would you do if you were desperate for water?? This is JUST AN ALTERNATIVE (that I have)! BC PC

    Yes my dear S, but I did, and suffered for 4weeks. As I said, a personal choice. There are many things that are ‘not necessary’ judging by the size of some rucksacks. This is a very light, cheap protection IF it were ever needed.

    Weather in June on the Camino Frances

    Everything at it’s lightest, no more than 8kg. Shorts, cycle shorts (with no padding, to prevent thigh rash), very lightweight t-shirts, trainers will get most use, trekking shoes in the rain. Avoid hottest part of day if possible. Start earlyish. Always walk in the shade, always wear sunscreen...
