      Paulo Arantes reacted to ShoshTrvls's post in the thread Injuries, Fatalities Since May with Like Like.
      While many people may push on when they shouldn’t, one of the differences of the Camino from other through-hikes is the abundance of places to take a few rest days, to seek medical attention, etc., and then continue on, or to take a bus a few...

      Thanks, but I like your analysis - it never occurred to me to factor in the number of weeks! An obvious omission, dramatically lowering the numbers - although the physical exertion and other stressors would of course increase the risks and...

      Estimado Charles, la tasa de mortalidad que utilicé no fue la tasa general del país. Lo restringí a los españoles de 50 a 65 años precisamente porque se acercan más a lo que tenemos con las estadísticas de quienes hacen el Camino de Santiago y...

      As tough as the trail can be, and as out-of-shape and un-suited to the job as some of the pilgrims appear, I am forever amazed that so FEW people die each year on the Way.

      One death attributed to a heart attack last week. Two pelegrinos gored, one seriously. One broken leg and many ending in Pamplona due to knee and leg and ankle injuries. Is it possible to confirm these "facts" independently Ivar? Been quite the...

      Paulo Arantes reacted to KiwiBob's post in the thread Injuries, Fatalities Since May with Like Like.
      Having just completed my first, and possibly last, CF I was amazed at the number of pilgrims I saw with a death/injury wish from texting while walking down rocky slopes to wandering up the middle of a road, I'm not sure if this was due to...
