    A new pack that could be a Camino fav!

    Check out the Gobi Gear organization bags: https://gobi-gear.myshopify.com/collections/segsac-series/products/segsac. I use two in my 34l bag. One for clothes and one for gear.

    Hiking Quotes - just for fun.

    "Why do you go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colors. And the people there see you differently, too. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving.” ― Terry Pratchett

    I've been using Dawn dishwashing liquid for years for shampoo. With the concentrate a little goes a long way.

    dry sacks/trash bag/ziplocks?

    I used two Gobi Gear bags in my backpack - one was for clothes and one was for everything else. Easy to locate items and keep organized.

    Has anyone ever walked principally at night?

    You might look at one or two of these as a night time light source instead of (or in conjunction with) a head lamp or flashlight https://luminaid.com/ They give a soft, diffuse, even light in all directions. Also check out their "Get Light, Give Light" donation program.

    Learning Easy Spanish

    Check with your local library to see if they subscribe to Mango. If so, then you can download it yourself. I like it because it is very conversational with useful phrases and common words.

    I didn't walk the whole Camino Ingles....

    Finished sketches, accordion fold watercolor book (Pentalic Dreamcatcher), 4" x 6", watercolor, Micron pen, watersoluble pencil, opaque markers, ball point pen (after I lost my brush and wore the Micron out!) Kindly ignore any spelling errors and wonky calligraphy. There is a slight pinkish cast...

    I didn't walk the whole Camino Ingles....

    I am trying something new for me - I ordered an Expand A Lung device from Amazon. I think I would also check with my physician before my next Camino to see if I need to adjust my medicines at all to help with the breathing. And climb more stairs and hills at home!
