    Men's Underwear & Anatomy

    I am happy to hear that I am not the only lady who has resorted to this solution. Just like Susan Peacock and Meandlan, I wear a boker brief (mine are Under Armour mens) under a skirt. I am very tall, and can't seem to find a pair of hiking shorts that are high enough in the rise to be...

    The unfortunate thing is that you will likely be hard pressed to find somewhere to air dry it I think. There isn't always a lot of options for all the extra bits and bobbles we would like to hang up somewhere.

    On our first camino I carried refillable liquid shampoo and separate conditioner for my long, very thick hair. Those bottles proved to be too small and I foolishly let my thrifty side win out and we replaced it with a rather large bottle of shampoo that was a pain to pack. This year I opted to...

    Home from my Camino and my feet are changed...(along with the rest of me.)

    You people and your tales of terror are worrying me! I already have enough difficulty housing these pontoons in decent looking footwear without worrying about an increase in their size! I suppose all the little people on the Camino can look for our discarded boots for shelter when the bed...

    Carry water bottles on front of pack: How-To.

    Thank you all for some great ideas. I almost dislocate my shoulder every time I attempt to reach for my water bottle and once it is out I need someone to return it to my pack for me! Time to try out some new options.

    Silk liners...why?

    Great advice Kanga. Despite many nights of claustrophobic heat, I was surprised to find myself quite cold on a few nights in Early August 2 years ago. We will be back in August this year and I was debating whether to add a light sleeping bag or blanket to my silk liner, or, utilize my merino...

    Gear Report--What Actually Worked, What Did Not. For a Summer Camino

    Hi, and thanks for the suggestions. I also wore a Wright's double layer sock, slightly higher than yours but still quite low. I did like them as one of my options. I will take a look at the shorter boot as well. I did try on a lighter weight version when I purchased mine which I will...

    Gear Report--What Actually Worked, What Did Not. For a Summer Camino

    Fantastic! Thank you for this. We walked from St. Jean Pied de Port to Belorado in August 2013 and will be returning this year to make the Trek from Burgos to Santiago and hopefully Finisterre or Muxia. The heat of summer does indeed add challenges and we have been reviewing our own choices and...

    Is it ok to walk in a tank top?

    I just spent the first two weeks of August on the Camino (St. Jean Pied de Port to Burgos). I had been concerned about propriety for the Camino and our further two weeks in other areas of Spain. It didn't appear to be an issue. We saw one woman walking in a pair of shorts that were tucked up...
