    Emergency Sleeping Bag & Liner combo? Lightweight options

    Hi All! Being the OCD lightweight packer I am, I'm in the process of accumulating my camino gear, even though I'll be starting at the beginning of October. I only plan to do about 3 weeks worth (100-200km from Pamploma, bus to Ponferrada or Sarria, and continue on to Santiago), and most likely...

    Another Consideration for October/November Pilgrims

    Here in Jerusalem the sun goes down boom, no warning no fascinating and long drawn out show of clouds and light - sunset at 1815 and quickly dark. I will be flying into Bilbao very soon, many things there I want to see and only one day to do it, Santiago Cathedral for the first sello, but also...

    Will I be warm enough?

    Hola amigo/as, Can you share your views please? I leave SJPP in a week & am just beginning to wonder if I'm going to be warm enough. To keep weight down I'm taking short & long-sleeved tech-tees, a micro fleece & a very thin waterproof jacket. My plan was to layer & generate body heat by...

I'll be starting the Camino Frances from SJPP on November the 10th, 2015, and have been inspired by these fabulous threads to begin a list of pilgrims who are walking at around the same time (including late October 2015 and early December 2015, given we'll likely cross paths). My hope...

    Too cold to walk in October? Too deserted for a woman alone?

    Do plenty of people walk the Camino through the end of October? I am unsure as to whether or not the beginning of October is considered the "winter" people avoid walking during. I fly into Paris on September 17th and plan to make my way down to Saint Jean Pied De Port no later than September...
