    On doing your research and buying proper equipment.

    I came across this article this morning on FB, posted on the Ireland Way page. Worth a read IMO especially if you are in the planning stages of your Camino.

This, as I found out was fairly common and there are several threads on here discussing the topic. When I returned home I found none of my runners, boots or going out...
