    Specific Details on using General Delivery in Spain

    I found Ivar's 2008 post. I caution you to remember that this is what they did in Santiago in 2018 with luggage marked as pilgrim mail. https://www.caminodesantiago.me/community/threads/lista-de-correos-update-request-march-08.3776/#post-21497

    Specific Details on using General Delivery in Spain

    Darn! This morning I came upon a 2008 post by @ivar where he reported on a conversation with a Santiago postal worker. That was one of the tricks they used to give the Lista deliveries an extra 15 days without ending up on some automated report to the higher-ups in Madrid. I've tried a number...

    Bourbon and cigars

    I looked this up. Jack Daniels calls itself a Tennessee whiskey and from what I've read a Tennessee whiskey meets the requirements to be called a bourbon. Tennesse says that if bourbon is made in Tennessee and is charcoal filtered before being poured into the oak barrel it can be called...

    A long (winding) road.

    I thought I might send in a shot of the Camino where you can't even see the end of it but it's already been on @VNwalking's thread. https://www.caminodesantiago.me/community/threads/on-the-camino-one-day-at-a-time-one-photo-at-a-time-part-2.67955/page-6#post-866345

    A long (winding) road.

    The Camino is over for me if that bridge is part of the Way.

    Scam - again..

    We once were called by our credit card company. They told us our card had been used illegally. We had no idea. They knew because it was by one of their employees who, if I remember correctly, used it to purchase something in Mexico. Our card wasn't the only one used this way. They sent us new...

    Where do ( did ) you walk locally in 2024?

    Fifty years ago I took a wildlife management course in college (way outside my major). A paper was assigned on an endangered series. Bald eagles and perrigrin falcons were two. They have come back well enough that I've seen both land in trees in my yard in suburban Boston. I wrote on the likely...

    Where do ( did ) you walk locally in 2024?

    And looking at the video I was wondering where the people were. Well, that explains it.

    Scam - again..

    The only time I got caught by scam artist was with an email I felt I had to answer quickly. Luckily they were just fishing for suckers. I was then deluged with the real scams but they were so poorly done the header information that the email reader presented in the new mail message was enough to...

    Scam - again..

    I'm too lazy to check. Is the C in 1C3B3RG the Latin C or the Cyrillic S (С)? Don't answer, it's a rhetorical question and I'm really just adding to the confusion.

    A Camino "dry run" - what I learned from the Milford Track

    I see that the 50 slots for the tours in November 2024 are going from 2,750 to 3,545 NZ dollars (adults). The three nights for the 40 independent hikers in the DOC huts will cost about $330 for non-Kiwis (without the optional transportation)...

    Scam - again..

    To give you a little more detail about @David's post above: On landline phones when you hang up the phone you may actually still be connected to the party on the other end for a period of time. So if you pick up the phone again you could continue to converse with them. The scam works when you...

    Scam - again..

    Sometimes the scamming email has nothing in it to trick you other than getting you worried or helpful so you call the phone number they give you. Then the scamming really begins.

    A long (winding) road.

    I'm back. But not with anything of mine. This morning I came across a video presentation of Loreena McKennitt's Never-ending Road and I thought it appropriate to share with this thread. I sought out a version with lyrics and was doubly lucky; I found one with the lyrics in English and with a...

    The Way: how do you feel about THE movie?

    Prior to our first camino (but after seeing The Way) we saw that movie in a theater with the producer there for an introduction and a question answering session after. Before the movie began she asked for a show of hands as to who wanted to go. Ours went up but being in the front we didn't see...

    GPX File Question

    Guy, I don't know any track editors so I can't recommend any. I've done what @DoughnutANZ says, I've used a text editor. They will work for files in the gpx format and also for kml ones. They can't be used directly for files in the kmz format (there are ways but you need experience with the kml...

    The Way: how do you feel about THE movie?

    Here's a list of the film's locations. I know that there is a thread (or threads) where some unknown locations were hunted down by members using photos. Perhaps it was later posts in this thread though. There are a couple of versions of the film so timings listed may not match the version of the...

    A Camino "dry run" - what I learned from the Milford Track

    I'm pretty much in agreement with @arfajajc above but I'm not a NZer so this additional information may not be totally correct. The Milford Track has a set of three fancy huts, like inns, that you pay big bucks to use. Rooms, beds, linen, blankets, food and drink are supplied. Hikers can carry...
