    camino trail work

    About your PS, in California when I was a crew leader we took anyone that showed up. All food and a place to camp were, and probably still are, free. Getting trail workers is difficult. We never checked the nationality or immigration status of crew members. We also provide a common kitchen and...

    camino trail work

    I used to help maintain trails in the Sierra Nevada mountains near Fresno. If I could figure out how how to get there I'd like to help, if my wife lets me.

    Poll Do you prefer tags or the search function?

    I don't use either. I scroll through the current topics and go over whatever seems interesting.

    Bayonne to SJPDP

    I did it somewhat differently . I walked out the front of the airport and found two obvious hikers and we split the taxi bill to Bayonne. Then I caught the train to Saint Jean and had 2 nights there for dejetlaging. Found that my poles were lost somewhere between California and Saint Jean. This...

    Why do it Again?

    Too much virus isolation

    Recommendation on what to do with slides

    The other big problem with older files is having software that will support them. It used to be that Microsoft's word program couldn't work with files generated with previous revs of the software. It could work with files 1 or 2 revs old, but not with revs 5 or 6 revs back. Then some software...

    Breakfast in St Jean Pied de Port

    I had one great meal there, couldn't afford more.

    Recommendation on what to do with slides

    If there are some slides that you really want to save, and perhaps share with friends, you can save them in the cloud. Google currently offers multiple giga bytes of free storage. There are other cloud storage accounts available, each with slightly different features. I pay Google 1.99 a month...

    Harassment on the way to Fátima

    I think that at one time there was a female only group on Facebook that might have been CHMAGAS or something like that. If anyone knows what it is really named, it might convenient for women on this site to check out.

    Something isn't working. All I got was the Facebook home page.

    Harassment on the way to Fátima

    I'm male so this does not directly affect me, but it is VERY disturbing. I don't see any reason that anything even somewhat similar is acceptable.

    Recommendation on what to do with slides

    Thank you for providing an estimate ($0.25) of the scanning cost per slide. To scan all of mine in will come to over $1,500! Now I have to see how many of the slides are worth scanning in. I went to the only good photo shop in town and they don't currently have one available for sale. They...

    Handy Bottle

    I got dehydrated on my first Camino and I now carry a 2L bladder.

    Recommendation on what to do with slides

    I have the same problem. Fortunately all my Camino pictures are digital. I'll try the only photo shop I know of later on today. I hadn't thought of them until that was mentioned above. I had a bunch of 16mm films put on DVD by Costco a few years ago, but I heard that they have stopped doing that.

    Nantes Cathedral on fire

    I heard that it started in three places.

    If that is inconvenient for you I'll go back and look for you, if I can figure a way to afford it. (And if the EU will ever let us USA types in again.)

    Or you could go back and see if the book us still there.
