    It's been a year since I walked from St. Jean to Santiago. Here is a video I put together if you would like to check it out. I still think of my experience almost daily. This forum was such an incredible blessing helping me to get ready and great tips on how to prepare. I flew to Spain alone...

    LIVE from the Camino 1st week on Camino Francis May 2016

    I am one week into my Camino - staying in Estella at the monestary. Wow what A challenge this has been thus far. Not only physically but just working through all the anxiety and fears of trying to figure out where I am, what I'm doing, and how to get what I need. This has proved to be a bit...

    I printed it out and gave it to some family and friends as they were wondering about the general layout of the route. Someone else may find it helpful... (I added the START and FINISH arrows as that is what I hope to accomplish) Buen Camino!

    Sleeves

    Wanted to check out my new "sleeves" on an early morning hike to see if they keep the chill off. They did great! and when I started to warm up I just pulled them off while I kept walking (and if it gets chilly or windy I can just slip them back on.) It was a beautiful day for a 14 mile hike...

    Feeling rather irritated....

    I never thought of myself as an over-controlling person or one who tries to complicate the heck out of situations...this journey I'm about to take may prove that to be a false view of self. (taking my 1st camino May/June of 2016) I have worried, fussed over, fretted, been fearful, anxious, and...

    I am trying to figure out if I actually need to bring a lightweight sheet or material treated with permethrin to cover the mattresses as a deterrent for those dreadful bedbugs?

    Lessons learned during a week of training

    I was fortunate that my work schedule was such that I had 4 consecutive days off in a row and so I decided I would like to try and do a 15 mile/24 kilometer hike each day, just to see what it would feel like doing them back to back. Also there was going to be a significant mixture wind, rain and...
