    What is the one luxury or non-essential item you would bring with you?

    For me a beard trimmer, rechargeable. About 250 gm (small). With the sweating all day shaving would result in raw or rashly skin. With a trimmer, I won't walk out the far end looking like Santa Claus either nor will I have to go through the itchy beard growing phase while hiking. P.S. This...

    Packing gear in waterproof bags?

    Hi, I've been wondering what kinds of bags you have used in previous caminos to separate your different gears inside your backpack. I was thinking about using a few roll-top dry bags, in case my pack would catch water, but now I'm not so sure it's a good idea, since the humidity of certain...
