    You will need one on those horrible plastic chairs outside cafes as your weight drops. Further details from the "Confraternity of the Bony Arse" founded in 2016 outside a bar on the Meseta.

    The answer to your prayers? May I introduce you to the SSO/SPOSN sit mat as used by Russia's Spetsnaz (Special Forces): It comes with a belt so it gets up when you get up! In cold weather you can wear it under your coat as a kidney warmer...

    Maybe I'm just a gear junkie :eek: I was only thinking of those wide open places on the VdlP. No cafes, benches, walls....... Why are you all so logical and sensible? :rolleyes: I now have to practice being able to sit crossed legged on...

    Camino Frances March 2016 - I arrived in Santiago in the middle of the day after nearly four fantastic weeks - had a flight home three days after. But I cancelled that flight and got a new flight for the next morning - as I was longing to see my...

    I'm not thinking of walking a winter Camino. I've only ever walked 2 weeks from Roncescvalles to Burgos. I rarely post. But I check the Forum nearly every day and am so heartened by the warmth and optimism I find here. I'm a bit of a kit nerd, so...
