    Do they live up to the name

    I walked 500 miles of the Appalachian Trail wearing Lowa Renegade mid-high boots without a single fall or ankle twist. I then switched to a low version of the boot and fell/rolled my ankle three times the first day, with very similar trail conditions. Therefore, I am a mid-high boot wearer to...

    What's happened to the Buen Camino app?

    I checked the Apple App Store and did not see a link for the old version. Maybe only available for Android?

    Camiño Finisterre Bed bug warning!

    I am carrying a mini ultraviolet flashlight and plan to inspect our bunks before we even take our packs off. Hoping that will be adequate, as I puff up like a blowfish with most insect bites! ...

    SURGERY UPDATE Post #8 and 15 : in this thread to my Updated foot issues

    I'd suggest talking to your doctor about getting Platlet Rich Plasma (PRP) injections. It is possible that insurance would pay for it. If not, and you can afford to take a 2 week vacation to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, you could get PRP here. Three injections over a 12 day period would cost...

    We use a small fleece pillow case from Thermarest and stuff it with our down jackets to make a pillow at night. Of course we will be walking in colder weather and will be taking the jackets anyway, so this may not be an option for you.

I plan to get PRP injections next month, and if that doesn't help, and get a cortisone injection from my podiatrist a week before i leave for my Camino. I have custom orthotics with MN pads placed that help, but I need to...

    Monkey Butt

    I had a really painful case of chafing when hiking the Appalachian Trail years ago. The problem was sweat running down my back and into that region, which led to wet skin rubbing against wet skin. The solution I came up with was to absorb the moisture before it could enter my shorts. I used a...
