    Designing a Camino for the COVID-19 World

    The only certainty is, that things will be very different....such a sense of loss for how things were on the camino. I can see opportunities for living differently and hopefully more sustainably in the world as a whole....but I so wish the pilgrim scene could remain as it was....

    Wave of pilgrims when lock down is over?

    Spain is going through a lot of pain and suffering. It will be important to allow the spanish people to let us know, if and when they are ready to receive pilgrims again and as someone said, what form that may take...crowded forms? Perhaps not... Even with the vaccine, risks will remain and this...

    Wave of pilgrims when lock down is over?

    There won't be caminos next year. I expect the paths and albergues won't reopen until well after vaccinations have commenced. Many owners of albergues and hotels, restaurants, cafes etc will not have been able to hold on to their businesses and will be closed. I imagine places will gradually...

    Absolute Bare Minimum Packing List

    Don't need raincover for pack, if you have a cape that goes over the pack. I took my raincover off. Add sunblock/moisturizer and sunhat.

    Packing recommendations please

    I never take a raincover for my pack, as I have a rain cape that goes over the pack.

    Rain protection - ( Overkill ? or cut back to save some weight?)

    That was in 2006 and I walked without a cell phone and no possibility of taking selfies

    Rain protection - ( Overkill ? or cut back to save some weight?)

    Haha. I put socks between 2 pairs of undies as ear covers and sun hat on top on a cold blustery day.

    Rain protection - ( Overkill ? or cut back to save some weight?)

    Not a sad case! On to it and sensible! I never pop the snaps on poncho open, they tear. Just pull the poncho over my head. Belt great idea. Different caminoes, countries, seasons, weather conditions, moods, body shapes, health needs, injuries, terrains, new products, wear and tear all demand...

    Rain protection - ( Overkill ? or cut back to save some weight?)

    Shorts are a kiwi thing and liberating. I love my legs getting red with wet and cold. Wards off varicose veins. May be you should take the Frogg pants and the sea to summit poncho....

    Rain protection - ( Overkill ? or cut back to save some weight?)

    I def recommend silk singlet plus 2 merino layers plus fleece or down jacket, merino gloves long, so you can move jacket sleeves up under poncho edge, merino leggings, wear shorts over and sea to summit nanosil poncho. Perfect combo.

    Rain protection - ( Overkill ? or cut back to save some weight?)

    Ok. Rain protection only...I prefer merino leggings with shorts over and poncho. Merino keeps you warm if wet and you can use it for evenings or pj pants. You sweat under rain pants, so wet anyway., dont see the point of them and such a hassle putting them on...

    I haven't had to use gloves...there are very lightweight silk ones...or thin merino ones...
