    Walking in September

    Hi all, I am attempting my third Camino; walked 300 odd k in 2007 before losing my way and then again last year with my wife and 15 yo granddaughter. Last year we only managed 450 k due to injuries, Achilles strain, to my wife. I cannot get the Camino out of my mind and must come back to walk...

    Very Early Planning

    Hi, my wife and I are planning to walk the Camino in Oct 2011 (yes a long way off) but as time is restricted I was considering not walking the leg between Burgos and Leon. Is this a reasonable approach or is there another segment (or two) which we should think about Rod

    Re: WALKIGN THE CAMINO IN OCTOBER 2007 Linda, I leave Melb on 1 Oct and start walking on the 5th. Do you have all your kit yet? If not check out Backpackers Light just off Little Bourke St, they have been most helpful and reasonable. Best of luck and maybe our paths will cross. Enjoy the...

    Hi, I am intending to begin the walk from St Jean on 1st Oct

    Hi Chris, From one 50yo to another, good luck. I am leaving a couple of days after you and am also thinking of a stopover at Orisson. I will be pretty slow ( I have not done a lot of preparation) so our paths may not cross but you enjoy Rod

    October babies?

    I will be heading out from SJPdP on the 5th of October and hope to finish about the 11th of November. My fitness level is such that I have no doubt Aarleks that if you arrive in SJPP on the 11th Oct and rest a couple of days you will still catch up with me.

    how long does it take to cover the average 25k per day?

    Thanks Ulysse, I thought that it would be pretty dark around 6am, I also don't see the point in walking in the dark, I am sure there is more to see in the first couple of hours of walking than the light on the track in front of you. I may never get the opportunity to do this again so I don't...

    how long does it take to cover the average 25k per day?

    This may be a little off topic but; I plan to start my journey 5 Oct out of St Jean, how much daylight will I have? What would be a good time to start out each day and still leave me with sufficient time to cover the 25 odd K's each day? I don't mind a little darkness but would imagine 5am or...
