    LIVE from the Camino On the Olvidado

    Took the train from Boñar but got off too early so had more kilometers to walk. In Vegacervera stayed at Alberque/Hostal Valporequero. Had a dinner and they let me have an earlier breakfast then scheduled. The steep descent after Villa de Puerto was steep, but not that bad since I always...

    Current status on the Olvidado — late May 2021

    To get the numbers for the key box, ask Rosi in the first house in Fasgar. No hot water in the alberque. No cell phone connection so no WiFi until almost in Igüeña. Alberque still new. No one else in the last three alberques. In Pandora the hotel was closed on Sunday. Resty wanted a two...

    Current status on the Olvidado — late May 2021

    In 14b after Coladilla the Camino leaves the road. It’s was AWFUL. So many weeds that I finally went across some fields just beyond Valle to the road. Recommend to stay on the road all the way to Villar. There are 24 hour ATMs in La Magdalena and Riello. The new alberque in La Magdalena is...

    LIVE from the Camino On the Olvidado

    In Guardo I couldn’t see any signs/arrows for 10b. Used Ender’s to get me in the right direction. When got onto a small dirt road outside the city, it took me to a big gully, so back to the highway for a kilometer or so. In Velilla del Rio Carrión. Bar Stop open at 6:30 on a Sunday. The...

    New albergue in La Magdalena

    Are these the correct phone numbers? I tried the first but between my Spanish and his English I don’t think I had the right number.

    LIVE from the Camino On the Olvidado

    For stage 9, after leaving Cervera crossing a River and turning left onto a secondary highway, the trail to the right is not marked and hard to see. It leaves the road onto a brushy, grassy trail before 1 km on the road. It doesn’t look like a trail only a path that has some grass trampled...

    LIVE from the Camino On the Olvidado

    Went to the urgent care hospital in Reinosa with swollen, red, and warm ankles. Since I had”dermatitis abuse estasis venous” the doctor gave me a small steroid drink, some cream, and instructions to teepee my legs up and sometimes in old water, and specifically to take a taxi to Olea, as well...

    LIVE from the Camino On the Olvidado

    I’ve learned how to expand Enders app and can now follow the Camino whichever way it turns. But leaving Villasana de Mena I was still learning. (Coffee in bars and bakery shop open by 7:30). Took me about three hours to get way out of town, even with the app were three potentials to go on...

    LIVE from the Camino On the Olvidado

    Started the Olvidado on Sunday, August 29. The Olvidado and the Norte share the same directions for a few miles. I never did see the Devil’s Bridge and just kept following the great signage. I finally realized after checking my track that I was not on the Olvidado. Some nice folks kept...

    More Thoughts on the Olvidado

    I have Ender's Guide on my Android phone. I've downloaded the map/navigation onto the phone and can see a white path from Bilbao to Güeñes. QUESTION: once I've started walking from the cathredral, will my progress be shown on the map/naviation page? Or do I need to get the "tracks" into...

    More Thoughts on the Olvidado

    I have both the Wikiloc and the ViewRanger apps on my phone, but don't know where to get the GPS nor how to link/use the info into one of the apps? Is there a simple, easy lesson to show me how? (I've looked at some of the YouTube suggestions, but not quite what I need or too complicated.)...

    More Thoughts on the Olvidado

    Thanks. If totally mixed up/lost, I can take the train as you recomend. I do have the Olvidado app and can download each "Guide". When I look at the Guide, it looks like it will track me as I go along the route. Is that correct? In other words, will the Guide show me exactally where I'm...
