Now that I've made my flight reservations for early April rather than late April I am (now that I thought about it over night) questioning whether I need to pack an extra layer. Looks like many-year average temps on the Meseta are 35F low and 55F high. Lovely temps for walking but now my light fleece (and rain gear when required) may no longer be enough. There goes my plan to pack my 28L bag!

Frances (May 2015) all going well and with my husband this time.
My husband and I plan to leave SJPP on 28th April. We live at Mangawhai. I have walked it previously but Doug is a first timer. We are not sweet young things so will be taking it slow.

Sometime I need to go back to the first third of the CF and look for all the things/places other people see that I somehow walk right past!!

In early April it can be quite cold, especially in the open wind.

I'll be packing rain pants this year plus poly/wool blend heavy leggings, fleece beanie and gloves. Guess the good news would be my pack weight maybe won't increase because I'll be wearing not carrying the cold weather gear.

Fingers crossed for April 2016, but still unsure about the route, CF or CDN? I'd like to see the former in springtime.

It will be HOT when walking in August.
I would save the extra $$'s during winter delay to allow an upgrade in accommodation. There are a few places with pools and they will be required.
I would without doubt get the Miam Miam Do Do which shows how many rooms in each place and how many in each room, something that is very important in August.

Hi, I'm starting from SJPP on May 1, only walking as far as Orisson on the first day, on advice from experienced friends, so our paths may not cross, ... but then again. I wish you all the best, or as fellow pilgrims say, buen camino.

I plan to start my walk on April 16, 2016 from SJPDP to Santiago and beyond.
I plan on starting on the 16th as well. What are your travel plans as I am hoping to find someone to split a taxis from Pamplona to St Jean on the late afternoon of the April 14th? Hope to see you on the trail.
