    CPAP Machines and Albergues

    On Via Francigena, I walked with a pilgrim who used CPAP machine. I never heard the machine, nor did I hear anyone complain about it. Make sure you have an extension, you won't always be close to an outlet.

I did the Coastal Portuguese from Coimbra a few years ago, but as I am reading up on Rota Vicentina, I am ready to do it all over again connecting the two. Any advice from folks...

    Best Shoes?

    I doubt the shoes would withstand the varied terrain of the Camino IMHO. "Trail shoes offer durable soles with more aggressive tread patterns to defend against rocks, sticks and other obstacles one might encounter on the trails.

    Time for Some Trail Runners

    Most studies are done on runners, but the results can apply to walkers to a lesser extent. I personally prefer a shoe with enough cushioning that still allows for a minimal feel of the surface. The feel of the surface is important in sending neural signals to the brain, in return for the brain...

    Time for Some Trail Runners

    How much cushioning is too much? Here is an interesting study to consider. New research published in the American Journal of Sports Medicine investigated whether runners’ biomechanics change after they train in maximalist shoes for six weeks. The study found that even after becoming acclimated...
