    Video My 2020 Journey ... home to SJPdP on a bike

    Thing with it appears to be ... having got though enough of it ... there isn’t Really an option but to continue. It’s so similar to the feeling I got though wilderness canoe expeds in Canada etc, yet there is also something else. It’s not something you do, it becomes something you are My wife...

    Tbh I’m always and always have been, ok to help people where I can here, so Cajarc should be safe ground for anyone passing here ... if I’m here, I can sort problems, offer hospitality etc. If I’m not then I can get someone to sort issues you’d find a different but similar beat to Paddling...

    Video My 2020 Journey ... home to SJPdP on a bike

    cheers, I suspect you may be correct about glimmers :) Frankly, I got better as I went and just kept going. Next fence post, lay-by, road sign etc. There’s a beat to it ... it’s similar to the feeling of long expedition paddles and portages ... the body hurts a bit but the mind is free. I don’t...

    Video My 2020 Journey ... home to SJPdP on a bike

    The fish was a catfish. That area/river is known for them. in fact, 2 were caught at about that size while I was there (and returned to the river). the other one was caught during the big storm with the guy out there fighting a whale while getting absolutely battered by the elements. keen...

    Video My 2020 Journey ... home to SJPdP on a bike

    Hi i just got there. Like many others, this year has been a “re-planning exercise” in whatever I could manage to do. It has been the most positive thing of 2020 for me. The playlist is my personal video diary of the whole thing and in no way commercial. I hope it helps someone, encourages...

    COVID When the Camino once again has Pilgrims Part II...

    I’m in France so would travel when we could, I doubt I’d be keen to be in a packed hostel anywhere till ther is a vaccine though ... which is in part and issue for the thing for me ... because I’d like to have that “group feeling”, but once I can I will. Having said that, I’m used to wilderness...

    Clean the Camino

    Good thought I already do a similar thing on wilderness canoe expeds, packing out any rubbish found Bad Toilet habits also present a massive issue because we can’t pack those for 20+ days without being exposed to issues ourselves. We settle for use of a folding shovel and some burning in that...

    What is rule/law on a E Bike to gain your certificate?

    Hi i think that’s probably all I can do and thanks for your words ... it’s very kind i understand or at least suspected the issue, hence the research in the first place. I’m not sure I’d want to be disturbed myself by some of the modern “rad/sick“ thrill mongers (or whatever they call things)...

    What is rule/law on a E Bike to gain your certificate?

    I have to say this whole thread has unnerved me a lot. I live half way across the French Le Puy route and have long been drawn to do this journey. I’ve helped and continue to help out pilgrims passing our way. Due to life, I have planned to complete the route from Le Puy to Saint Jean this year...
