Luggage Transfer Correos

Baggage transfer

I had an accident on the Aragonese last year. I want to go back and finish the walk next year and get closure. I hope to walk from Jaca to Puente de la Reina.
My body is frail.
Tour companies offer baggage transfers but they normally do 20kms per day which I do not believe I can walk.
I am not sure if I will be able to walk 10-15 kms with a backpack per day, going from albergue to albergue. The distance between albergues is about 10-15 which is okay, but adding the backpack will be problematic.
Are there facilities to have the backpack transferred? I have not been able to find any. ncsequipajes@gmail.com transfers bags from Sangüesa and they suggested I contact local taxis. I went to the postal service web site elcaminoconcorreos.com but it does not appear to do baggage transfers on the Aragon.
Suggestions for baggage transfers please or any other solution most welcome. Thank you.

I have walked part of the Camino Frances and plan to start over in April 2018.

CaminoFacil has transferred my baggage on my last three caminos without once screwing up. I heartily recommend them.

Hmm, couple of possible options:

1. Book pensions 10 to 15kms apart, so you need carry only the minimum (no sleep sack, no towel, only one change of clothes . . . ), or

2. Take a non-walking buddy with you who will take a taxi each day . . . and your pack.

Re 1 - I do not think there are many pensions. According to Gronze there mainly seem to be albergues - few, if any pensions. But will definitely pack light.

You should be able to find places other than albergues by looking on normal sites, not specifically pilgrim sites. Tourist office can sometimes help here, and often hospitaleros. Also try booking.com and hostelworld for starters. Or you can do a taxi shuttle if the stages are too long for you

You have been on the Camino Aragones, so you know it is a great one! It should be the primary camino for starting to Santiago (IMHO). But it lacks the support for the "frail", though I doubt you really are! Doughty might be a better adjective. If you really need backpack support, either plan on the expense of taxis, or match your ability with another camino. :)

I am entering the phase of self discovery where I know I have limits. The four minute mile is now an impossibility.

Bully! Proud of you, because I know how badly you were injured....

But as to the transport question, I got nothing.... Correos, maybe?

Correos does not run the service there.

I have been walking with a Zimmer frame / pram which is fine. But baggage and distance, or just distanceis problematic.

Have not decided yet. Am thinking. Maybe just go and plan on taxis, or good will.

Have now managed to get my shoes sorted out. After my accident in Jaca last year I have spent a long time strengthening the leg and getting my shoes sorted out. You see my one leg is now 2 cm shorter than the other. My left shoes have had the sole split and raised. The body is still a bit lob sided.
When you are out of alignment funny things can happen to bones, and that is why I do not want to walk long distances or carry my rucksack.
