    Hi ho,

    Less than a week before I go!

    I thought about creating a live thread, but I suspect I will have no time nor the technology to do regular updates. Perhaps I will write something about it once I get back home.

    I will take a lot of pictures, and take notes in the guide I have printed if there are any inconsistencies!

    So here is the plan: it has all come down to

    1) Ruta de la Lana: Alicante - Burgos
    2) Bus to Irún OR Bayonne to do the Camino Vasco Interior OR the Camino de Baztán
    3) Then if I have enough time I take the train (?) to Ponferrada to walk the Camino de Invierno (2nd time) to Santiago.

    Will anyone be on the road the same time as me? Mostly in July? Please let me know! I think there will be veeery few people on the Lana, at least once it definitely separates from the Sureste/Levante...

    I am in a hurry to buy all the items I need... Really stressed right now!! :Oo

    See you around!

    Be prepared for extreme heat, even at night time.

    Buen Camino, BP!
    (The Baztan is special. And it's short enough 4 or 5 days) that you would have more time for the Invierno.)

    Hola Bad Pilgrim
    A big challenge for you in the current heat. But I know you've prepared well from many previous responses on this forum. It's such a great help to us all!
    I just wanted to add my good wishes to you on this/these way/s for July.
    Buen camino
    Annie

    Thanks, but I am no super hero... I will quit if it becomes too much. I have suffered heat strokes 2 times on previous caminos so I know when to stop... I will give it a try though! :O)

    Hola BP!

    If you choose Vasco del Interior in stage no.2 let me know if you would need anything. I walked it past summer and memory still serves me ;)

    Buen Camino Combo!

    Yees, I still don't know. I will decide that when I am in Burgos and then I know how much time I have left for the other Caminos.

    The Lana seems to be difficult to divide as I want. Less options than the Levante/Sureste, when I looked through the guidebook (the one I couldn't scan because the file was too big). If I can make the Lana in 20-25 stages I have time for the Vasco, but if it takes me 25-30 stages I will have to choose the shorter one (Baztanés) :Oo

    It's 'normal' heat here in Alicante, mid thirties around midday and a blissful 28 in the evening :) You'll arrive when the Hogueras are in full swing!
