    Name the one thing you could never have prepared for

    That I would be so emotional. That people,would be so kind and take your pack right out of your hands and help you to a bed and tell you to check in later when they see you have over extended yourself. That serendipity would be the norm rather than the exception. And much much more.

    Highway of horror

    I've been reading "I'm off then" by Hape Kirklin and he gives a horrific description of walking on the shoulder of the highway between villa franca and vega. Has anyone walked that?

    Why Do Adventure Snobs Hate The Camino De Santiago? By Tom Allen

    To me an adventure is going someplace I have never been and doing things I have never done. Simple as that.

    So, if people could say what month they are going it would be helpful.... thanks. I am having trouble deciding on outer layers for June 4th start. I know in upstate ny june can be pretty cold in the first 2 weeks. Hiking through the pyrenees at that time might be cold. I know I will warm up...
