Hi, this is my first post and I'm in no hurry for a reply as 2020 is the opportunity when walking Dareus to Santiago comes around for me.
Use a sleep apnoea machine when sleeping, which is why the thread title questions the availability of power (and relatively close at hand) in allergies which I would prefer for the communal experience. If not possible I guess I'll investigate pensions or cheap hotels.
Thanks for your reply and gidday to all.
Cheers,
Colza

Should read Sarria to Santiago. Must remember to scrutinise predictive text.

I was able to plug in my CPAP every night on the Camino Frances in September-October 2017.

* By the end of my Camino, faster pilgrims were staking out a bunk for me before I arrived that was close to an outlet, which helped.

* Several hospitaleros along the way asked people to switch bunks with me so I could be close to a plug.

* Two hospitaleros provided extension cords when it was needed.

* In Azofra, the wall outlets were not working anywhere in the municipal albergue but the bathrooms. No one was staying on the third floor, so the hospitalero improvised:

Buen Camino! Two small suggestions: 1) No one will bat an eye once you hook up the sleep apnoea machine h-o-w-e-v-e-r we live in the cursed age of...Mobile phones... and the need to recharge the miserable things. Bring along a power strip to allow greater access other pilgrims will thank you.

2) Clearly mark your machine bright colors and a Red Cross no mistakes needed! It is common Camino practice for any number of early risers to head for the front door at 0530AM stumble-thumping all the way so make sure it is in a secure position before "now I lay my head to sleep"!
