    Thanks Paula, for posting. I'm shocked at how many women have taken this "journey!" Zero regrets sound good and that's what my plan is! I'm on Lazatrole for 5 years unless it begins bothering me but so far, so good. I think I'll just go flat. I...

    Wild Irish reacted to Kym G.'s post in the thread Orisson alternative?? with Like Like.
    Last summer we stayed at the Gite Antton. The folks there were great, and the accommodations were very comfortable. I do not remember the food they prepared for us, but I do know we had a great time around the table. They picked us up at...

    I know that along the Camino past SJPdP there is a gite in Honto, and that Orisson also has Gite Kayola, but last year I met several people at Orisson in the afternoon who were staying at a gite somewhere nearby. They were picked up at Orisson...

    Buen Camino! I will set out from Bayonne on 25th March, also on the Norte, but 5 or so days behind you. The temperature isn't the only factor: April typically is a rainy month along the coast. I will flex my packing list according to the 10 day...

    This is what I call a good solid post! I have almost followed this advice myself over years of Camino etc. I am a merino fanatic but the cost is becoming prohibitive and I am not happy with synthetics. At 82 however, I can afford to keep...

    Wild Irish reacted to davebugg's post in the thread Walking in cooler temperatures. with Thank you Thank you.
    There have been a couple of threads about early Spring walking, and what clothing to include for cool and cold temperatures. The information that I have written below - - and have posted previously - - is not really a list or an inventory of...

    On my first Camino, the first week from SJPdP was very cold and rainy (highs were 4 C - 8 C). I wore a 150 weight merino tee shirt with a long-sleeve Columbia hiking shirt, and a Patagonia Houdini wind jacket. Bottoms were just 8" leg merino...

    Hi, Creativeguy, Maybe this will give you an idea of what might work during your time on Camino. Below is a list of my "closet" that I carry in my pack. Besides it being used during the Fall on the Camino last year, it is about the same as what...
