    What was your meltdown point?

    Cheap but fine equipment

    I have lots of used gear. But I had a hard time with a backpack, so I got an Osprey, and shoes are new, too. But pants are from eBay, shirts are Tek gear from Kohl's bon sale. Love bargains!

    SIM card

    Thanks. I do live in USA, but don't travel outside the country. This is my first trip. So, I guess you're saying I will need to switch Sim cards? I guess I'm not sure why that is if Verizon has international calling?

    SIM card

    I am going in August and today was the first I heard about needing a Sim card. I have Verizon and was going to add on the internal plan for the time I'm gone. Do I still need a Sim card?

    60 and over on the Camino

    I will be walking for the first time this August for about 7 weeks. That's about 12 miles a day, some shorter, some longer. I plan to carry my pack but will be realistic if I have to send it on some days. I am also realistic about possibly taking a bus to the next planned stop. I have always...
