The Kolbist's latest activity

    Hi Alwyn, my objection was not about the camping. I have camped all over the US that I could care to remember. My sleep had been disturbed by bears twice in the past but I still love camping. Putting a chain of campgrounds that might not be close...

    Perfectly said. It goes back to what makes Camino different from PCT and AT. Camino is a pilgrimage. The journey is the destination and the destination is the journey. Camino has been the life-blood economically for the small towns along the...

    I don't find this either attractive or appealing as a way of doing a pilgrimage walk. Which might sound odd, because I have in the past camped regularly here in Australia and in Britain, and I walked in Scandinavia where there is a far stronger...

    I understood the context of your first post, and I understand this one. I guess my question is one of the usability of such a discussion. Are you asking because you are constructing a business model and plan in order to invest in such a concern...

    Sorry for going all free-market capitalist on this topic, but . . . Supply and demand usually prevail. If there was enough demand for camping and people were willing to pay for it, supply would likely emerge. Given the demographics of Camino...

    And that experience was unique, therein, I make bold to say, its wonderful memory. If I want backpacking and the resultant 30+ lbs on my back, I would (never\) walk the Applachian Trail and the Pacfic Crest Trail. I shall return for my fourth...

    Eh? I think it's one of the harsher threads I've come across. I do not pick up a tone of dispassionate critique in NorthernLight's rhetorical "because, because, because" (effective, but not kind); or truenorthpilgrim's strident argument for the...

    I want the Caminos to return as they were before. I will not use any campsite or wildcamp. I liked it as it was, and hope it returns the same. And I am ready to go.

    Would we really want to take away what little income the villages and towns have from us (generally) well-to-do pilgrims? I for example one say definitely not. Setting aside all the other problems already mentioned.

    A post too irresistible to refrain from responding ☺. A few thoughts: being able to wake up from your tent bed and watch the sunrise from those awe inspiring views just past the Col de lepoeder on the Napoleon A wonderful idea. Except when I...
