Cadiz-Seville: sleeping bag/extras storage

Hi there, can anyone help me with the following?

* Is there somewhere in Seville that I might leave my sleeping bag (new, no bed bugs) and extras (very little) for about a week? I intend walking from Cadiz to Seville then on to SDC. Looking at the websites, a sleeping bag appears unnecessary as there are no refugios until after Seville and I will need to stay in other types of accomodation.

*I will be starting in about 10 days or so (still finalising details). I intend posting my heavier jacket ahead to either Caceres (approx 14 days after Seville) or Salamanca (approx 22 days). By the time I reach Caceres it will be November. I am trying to ascertain how cold it might be, and trusting that I won't need the heavy coat before Caceres. Advice on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Lovingkindness, you are really planning "The road less travelled".

Between Caceres and Salamanca there is a long climb from low elevation up onto the high interior plateau. This hill is just after Banos de Montmeyor. I suspect that temperatures will be a degree or two colder and the wind will be more brisk up on the plateau.

I don't know what you are carrying for a winter Camino, but would encourage you not to be caught 3 or 4 days south of your warm coat in a cold wind.

My experience working out of doors in the winter has been that my body keeps itself warm while I am moving, but cools off when I take a break. I am careful to not wear too much so that I don't sweat heavily and get my under layers wet. You may only need gloves, hat and a windbreaker while you are walking, but your warm coat may be necessary when you sit down.

Ultreia!

Hi again, My latest plan for left-luggage in Seville is to use the post restante service there. Whilst the hostel I will be staying at advertises that it has a luggage office(Sevilla Urbany Hostel), they have declined my request to use it for a week. Cheers, Lovingkindness.

Hola out there, greetings from Seville. Left luggage services can be found at the bus station Estacion Autobuses Prado de San Sebastian, 2 euros per day. Seville Urbany Hostel do have a left luggage service but they cannot guarantee safety of anything left there, people are in and out of the room and not monitored. Cheers, Lovingkindness.
