    Real Pilgrims

    I really don't think a lot of the people in this thread really read the post. I have no problem with people taking taxis.The point of my post was about sharing the camino with other people who have never done it. I don't think you can share something you haven't experienced. I wasn't condemning...

    Real Pilgrims

    I Agree. I get it that you can't have everything. But I'm going to bring what i need even if it means an extra pound or two. What day do you leave?

    Hi BillyB I have refined my packing list over the years. It is based on the lightest and least bulky of each item that I can get away with. I don't carry a paper guidebook anymore, using apps on my phone instead. I don't carry an extra pair of sneakers, and my flip-flops are in an outside...

    Sleeping Pad

    Ok, last question. I purchased a big angus sleeping bag. Its light but requires a sleeping pad for insolation on the bottom. Will I need it? Its a pound and a half I could shed.

    Phone and iPad

    Unfortunately, not bringing a phone is not an option. Can anyone tell me what the most reasonable way is to call or send pictures back to the USA might be. I plan on bringing my iPhone and maybe even my iPad mini. Buen Camino!

    I was really pretty happy with the weight. 21 lbs didn't feel bad. It was more the bulkiness of fitting it in. I tried the exos and it wasn't comfortable. I figure I'm going to be married to this pack for a month, it better feel good. Thats why i went to the Atmos. I would definitely ditch the...

    I really don't know how you do it. I have the 50 atmos and I'm packed tight. my pack only weighs in at 21lbs and its full. I do have sneakers that take up a lot of room, but i don't think i overpacked. Sneakers 1 extra pair of pants 3 extra shirts 1 fleece 1 rain jacket flip flops 4 underwear 4...
