    Post-Camino Gear Review. 5 kilo (11 pound) pack base weight.

    I always see pre-Camino gear requests, but rarely post-Camino gear reviews. I did one years ago after my first Camino (Frances), but now, after my fourth Camino (San Salvador and Primitivo), I thought it was a good time to update the list. This list is for a recent pilgrimage, Sept. 4-14...

    Branching from Frances to Primitivo?

    Hello all! I'm planning my first Camino for May 2016, and am having a bit of a debate as to what route I should take.
