The Way of Le Puy: All the Stuff You Wanna Know or Oughta Wanna Know Before Starting Out August, 2023

No permission to download
Before tackling the Le Puy route, I couldn't find anything that comprehensively addressed the most common questions that most people would have about the route itself, about accommodations, food, available resources, and on and on.

So after walking the walk, I put this together. The introductory chapter discusses the route in general, the country through which it passes, and the terrain. Following chapters cover:

- Route-finding
- Guidebooks (and apps and gps tracks)
- Accommodations
- The Food
- Winging It or Making Reservations
- Your Fellow Travelers, the Social Thing, and the Language Barrier
- Phones and Electronics
- Money
- Lunch Stops, Rest Days, and Potty Breaks
- Baggage and Personal Transport
- Getting From Place to Place and to Your Start and End Points
- When To Go
