    When can I book for Alsa?

    Could there be a problem with Trainline? I've never seen it successfully offer a ticket. Just now, I checked about 20 dates at random in April and May for Leon to Santiago and every time it said there were no tickets available. Not all the trains are fully booked, are they? I just checked...

    Orisson Building Damage?

    I can second that suggestion and add one to watch for mail to other mailboxes. I received my second response (following the initial acknoweledgement of my request) to an email address I almost never use and don't normally monitor, probably taken from Facebook.

    He declined my request for a bed at Orisson on April 20, but did have a bed at Kayola available. I was also able to get seating for dinner that evening and breakfast the next day.

    Help with blisters!

    Wearing liners for any long walk has helped me avoid blisters as a rule. Also, in my experience, I've had luck preventing them by trying to be sensitive to the development of a hotspot, and then having the presence of mind to stop, pull off my shoe, and apply a moleskin. I also learned from a...

    Weather Inquiry

    In addition to the helpful resources cited above, I'd like to add another that may be of interest. Dark Sky is an app that delivers localized weather information throughout the world and it has an interesting historical function. For example, if you list Burgos at the top of its page, it will...

    "Buff" question for native English speakers

    The corporate lawyers at Buff have been ever so vigilant! But, they are also making lots of work for the marketing agency copy writers responsible for developing euphemisms. I looked up these products on the REI website. Sure enough, the various brands are called "Multifunctional Headwear (or...

    Thank for the heads up on that documentary Irishwalker. It looks very good. Right now, it is available on Netflix in the UK but not the U.S., FYI. Perhaps soon ...

    Light weight seats, chairs, stools

    You two are an inspiration! For starters, I think you may find some prospects on Amazon if you search for "ultralight camp stool". Just skimming over the results I saw a couple of three-legged stools that might work for you.
