About two weeks ago we had our first meeting of pilgrims and pilgrim want-to-be's in Houston, Texas.

We had about 12 people and a few others who were interested but not available to attend.

I did some "googling" to find people but the real push came from The American Pilgrims on the Camino. http://www.americanpilgrims.com/. They were able to seach their database and send the invitation out to everyone with a Houston zipcode. I recommend contacting them...they were super helpful and supportive of our efforts.

I'd also strongly encourage you to make this happen. I had a great night meeting others and reveling in that instant 'camino connection'.

We have our next event, a "Post Holiday Bayou Ramble" scheduled for early January. Wine and tapas will also be involved!

Let me know if there is anything I can do to help.

Druid Hills? They have one of them in Galicia, but it´s called "Pico Sacra." And not a subdivision in sight!

My daughter and I did the Camino Frances from Leon in 2009.
We live in Peachtree Corners.
Though my daughter is in college now, I would be very interested in starting a Pilgrim Chapter in Atlanta. Even had a discussion a couple of years ago with a fellow pilgrim about starting one. Given the attendance in Atlanta to The Way screenings earlier this year, there may be more people interested than I thought.

Who would be interested in helping set it up? I travel 80% of time for work, so we would have to make it a weekend event to start.

My wife, Patti, and I walked from Astorga to SdC in June 2010. We are planning on walking from SJPP in 2012, leaving on May 1. We live in Hoschton, which is north of the Mall of Georgia, off I85. It would be great to talk with others who enjoy the Camino as much as we do.

There is a hiking club in our development, the Village of Deaton Creek, and we are going to show our DVD of pictures from the Camino. It is either going to be very boring or it will be a good recruiter. Many saw "the Way" and enjoyed it.

Anyone else planning a 2012 trip?

We are going to Madrid on April 29 and starting the Camino on May 1. The months of planning and dreaming all come to fruition when you hit the 'submit' button when buying the airplane tickets. I think Delta is the big winner on the Camino. Buen Camino.

There is a new chapter of the American Pilgrims of the Camino in Atlanta. In fact, there are two upcoming events.
This Sunday at 1:eek:o there is a walk at Stone Mountain, follwed by lunch at a local German Restaurant. Meet at the Confederate Hall.
On February 5th there is a meeting at the Perimeter REI. A slide show and movie, followed by discussion. Tom Beck, who just returned this fall from the Camino, will be the speaker.
We have 10-20 people at the first meetings and hikes. Some people have walked the Camino and some are getting ready. A good group.
Patti and I have walked the Camino Frances this past Spring, and a shorter walk from Astorga in 2010.
Hope this is helpful.

Great! Thank you so much for the information. I will not be able to be at Stone Mountain, but can definitely be at the Perimeter meeting. I appreciate your help looking forward to meeting past and future pilgrims! Will you be at the meeting? I am planning to start in Astorga and would love to hear your experience.

The Perimeter meeting might work for me, depending on what time it is; I just checked the Atlanta group's info on American Pilgrims but no info is given under upcoming events.

I met Tom Beck when I stayed at L'Esprit du Chemin this past September; well, I'm assuming it was Tom. I'd forgotten the name, but I remember talking with someone who told me about the Atlanta group. It'd be a drive for me (I live near Clemson, SC), but for a chance to see the slide show & movie, it'd be worth it. There's also an Asheville group, more convenient in terms of driving, but not in terms of scheduling.

I wonder how many South Carolinians are among us... :)

Hi Meredith,

I found the information about the event on the REI Perimeter website. It is 7:00-8:30 on the 5th. It looks like you need to register to attend (it is free). Hope this helps.

Latest info from the Atlanta Camino Group.

The APOC Atlanta Camino Group is planning 2013's Hike #3 for February 24th. It will be at Vickery Park in Roswell (directions are set out below). We will meet at the Riverside Road parking lot at 12:45 and start hiking at 1PM. (If you're on your way, but running late, call Tom Beck at 404.680.2325 to advise. The parking lot is very close to the intersection of Roswell Road and Riverside Drive.) If anyone wants to carpool, they can because you have to pay to park inside Vickery.

For the Old Camino Hands, this will be a great way to reminence about your Camino, and share with the Newbies. For the Newbies, this will be a special opportunity to pick the brains of those who have gone before. And for everyone, it'll be a great hike. Followed by a stop-over at a local place to be named later:).

All are welcome!

Thanks for the info about the Feb. 24th event!

I live in Atlanta for now (moved down here for work), and am planning to do my first Camino this summer. Actually going with a few other people to shoot a documentary about the Camino as we walk. Would love to meet up with some local pilgrims who have gone before us. For advice and stories, as well as just friendship. I don't know a whole lot of people in Atlanta yet.

See you soon, hopefully.

Question for the Atlanta folks: We are planning to leave May 30th, fly into Madrid and train to Leon to start our walk on the way. We plan to fly back to Atlanta from Madrid on June 22nd. Wondering if anyone has found any good flight deals out there? I am finding that the prices average around $1490. Anyone have a great website to find good airline deals?

Apr-Jun 2009 - I solo walked from Roncesvalles to Santiago. I hope to return as a hospitalera in 2016.
I would love to be included on the list of Atlanta Pilgrims. I am about 2 1/2 hours away (Piedmont area of SC) but I go to Atlanta frequently. In Apr-Jun 2009 I walked the Camino (alone) from Roncesvalles - it took me 40 days. (During this anniversary time of the year, I have been re-reading my daily Camino journal notes each day and posting them in the NOTES section on my Facebook page) I find that my experiences on the pilgrimage are still effecting my life in very real ways. I would love to have the opportunity to be among people who have this shared experience.

To all you Georgia folks, REI is having free presentations about the Camino and the Appalachian Trail
this coming weekend at a few of their GA stores. I am going to be attending the presentations at the Kennesaw store ... Saturday for the AT and Sunday for the Camino. Last time I looked there were plenty of openings left.
There are three other stores in the metro-Atlanta area that also are having presentations this weekend. Check REI's website for times.

All folks in Atlanta interested:
Here is an email from Tom Beck the Chapter lead...
From: tom beck [mailto:tombeck1@att.net]
Subject: Camino News



Hola Fellow Pilgrims: As promised, I will not bother you with emails unless I have some news to share. Well, I do. First of all, our Georgia chapter of the American Pilgrims on the Camino (APOC) is joining community activities with the Georgia Spanish community called Casa de Espana. Casa de Espana is a social group of Spanish families here in Atlanta founded to perpetuate the rich culture and traditions of Spain. We have very similar interests in that Casa de Espana wants to begin inviting non-Spanish Atlantan's who have an special interest in their beautiful and culturally rich country to learn more about Spain by attending their functions. We on the other hand, wish to invite their members to take a special interest in their national treasure the Camino de Santiago. We believe that we can teach and learn from each other interests both our communities. Next, I am excited that we will, soon to be announced, hosting the southern premier showing here in Atlanta, of the new movie/documentary of "Walking the Camino". MaryAnne and I will be back to you soon with time and venue. Last, I want to share with you that I will be having another of my "Walking The Camino presentation for you new Pilgrims who are anticipating doing the Camino at some near date. I have a need in that if you know anyone who has walked the Portuguese Camino, please have them call me at 404-680-2325 as I will be walking that Camino this June. Buen Camino: Tom

Wow, don't know how I never spotted this before. I'm very interested in some of the past events posted and hope there will be more in the future. Were these through the Atlanta APOC? How did the partnership with Casa de Espana turn out? Sounds like a great group, wish I would have seen that one. Anyone remember if there were people from the rural areas around Salamanca?

Is anyone planning to attend Tom's talk at REI on the 15th? I'll be there. Also, a couple people from the Facebook group CdS Travel Group-Atlanta have said they will be there, too. We did a nice 10 mi from Kennesaw Mt Visitors' Center to Kolb Farm this weekend and will probably do a hike somewhere else on Feb 21.

Well, that ended up being a lot of exuberant sounding questions. Hope to meet some of you.

Welcome to the site. Tom has not sent around any notes lately about activities, so I am not sure if there are any plans. It would be good to see if we could get more regular activities because everyone seems to be very well attended.

Thanks for the reply Rambler,
In the past what kind of events were the most popular? i.e. hikes on something like the AT, metro-ATL hikes, suburban walks- something like Kolb Farm to Marietta Square, cultural things like Casa de España event, Spanish food/wine nights, or a little of all of it? Any idea on whom to to contact to get that ball rolling again? I'd be willing to put in time to get things organized if someone could point me in the right direction.

Thanks, Jim.

I think I may have seen your name in a recent request on the ATL- APOC email list. If not please consider it, because someone else in Buford recently did!

As far as meeting with other pilgrims- I try to pop in on here at least once a week or so. There is also a local American Pilgrims Facebook page: Atlanta Chapter-American Pilgrims on the Camino, or as I mentioned, the local email list.

We now host 11 hikes a year, on the first weekend of the month, alternating between Saturday and Sunday. They are typically 4-7 miles, but about once a quarter we host a "Camino Prep Hike" that is about 10-12 miles.

We also host a social event about once a quarter. These are things like Spanish wine tastings, pot luck dinner, Camino Q&A, or paella parties. We have two big events coming up soon - a Gran Paella hosted by the Spanish Consulate on October 23 and challenging AT Camino Prep Hike on November 5. Please come join us!
