    Happy new year Camigos.
    While we have no plans yet for a get-together we hope to make some for (fairly) early in the year before folk start walking.
    For new-comers:- we meet in S Devon, but come from as far as Yorkshire, Hampshire etc. If you are in Devon and we are meeting do join us, or maybe make it a reason to visit the area.:)
    Meanwhile maybe just watch the thread.....for future dates etc

    Hi, walking my first camino in May 2017 (Sarria to Santiago). Live in Exeter so would love to meet with other pilgrims. Thanks Helen :)

    Hi everyone, We are in Dorset. It would be great to meet up sometime if possible. Hopefully I am now following the thread. We generally try to do at least one day long walk a month, with lots of shorter ones in between. Our plan (if it can be called that) would be to increase the frequency of longer walks towards late April, when we have planned to fly out to do the Camino.

    We are planning to start our first Camino at St JPdP late April, arriving SdeC early June. Perhaps paths will cross.

    @TerryB & @Tia Valeria. A Happy New year to you and all the guys and girls from the Camigos in S Devon. Look forward to the next meet up, if I'm around I will definitely attend.

    Happy New Year everyone! And thanks to Tia and Terry for starting this thread.

    I live in Gloucestershire, about halfway along the Cotswold Way, literally!

    I've been walking the Camino Frances in stages, so far having reached Carrion de los Condes.

    I will be returning in March to walk Astorga to Sarria, and then at the end of April to walk Sarria to Santiago de Compostela, aiming to arrive on my 60th birthday, where I will spend the weekend celebrating with family and friends! Party time! All fellow pilgrims welcome to join!

    I am sorry to have to skip the rest of the Meseta and Leon, but am sure at some point I will cover that distance.

    So, I look forward to meeting some or all of you during 2017, whether in Spain or South Devon. Buen Camino.

    First try at arranging an early get-together for 2017. We suggest Saturday March 4th, probably at Darts Farm.
    Hopefully this avoids bad weather and is still early enough for March walkers.
    We can confirm the venue and a time - but in the past have met from about 11.00/11.30 onwards. Totally informal, we just buy drinks and food as needed and usually leave by about 2pm.
    If this suits I will draw and post a plan of the cafe seating areas as the way in to the best place was hidden by a stack of goods last time :(.

    When exactly are you starting your Camino? I begin April 23, 2017. BTW, I was in your neck of the woods these past few years. I did the entire SWCP last May to July and I also did the Wainright Coast to Coast and then onwards to Farne Islands and Holy Island.

    Sadly I shall be unable to make it.
    Saturday is a work day for me most weeks, and as I shall be having 2 off later in March while I walk from Astorga to Sarria (I shall be at Cruz de Ferro/Acebo on the 18th and travelling home on 25th) I really can't take another Saturday in March.
    Hopefully I will make another meet-up later in the year - I so look forward to meeting you all.

    Arrive StJPdP 27th April, and start walking 29th. Looks like we may be a few days behind you. We have done small parts of SWCP, as it is local, and did the Coast to Coast in 2015. Looks like you had a great time. Are you UK based?

    We have alternated between Saturdays and a weekday so that different work patterns etc are noted. Is any week day better for you than others for later in the year? We realised last time that Monday is not a good day for Darts Farm as the fish and chip outlet is closed :(, but other days are OK or Exeter as a different venue.....

    I'm Canada based but LOVE walking in your country! Can't get enough of it. If You didn't have such horrible quarantine laws I'd spend April through to October with my dogs wandering your countryside. We may end up running into each other. I have rest days in a few places and I am walking at a leisurely average of 20 km a day so I you walk more and take no rest days who knows, we may meet up!

    Sorry you are so far away @Elizabeth Cheung - but if you are in the UK again and we are meeting it would be great to see you. Our 'furthest' pilgrims to be with us were Australian. Buen Camino for April/May.

    It's a one month quarantine :-( I couldn't do that to my kids which is so sad because Britain has to be about the best place EVER to vacation if you have a dog!

    Great to see that several can make our get-together that Saturday. I will post a reminder nearer the date, plus a plan of the cafe area.

    (A small plea - can we keep to meeting-up and not divert to quarantine laws. That might be a good topic for a new thread as others might have something to contribute which doesn't fit here. :))

    Just a minor concern but a few responses we starting to comment on dogs and UK/EU rules, which could lead to the thread going off course. However some folk might want to discuss dog quarantine rules, so it might make a thread in its own right - along with other dog related threads. Meanwhile here we can keep to the topic of meeting together in S Devon. Look forward to seeing you in March. :)

    For those who hope to meet in Santiago there was a meet up place at Tertulia's - organised by @peregrina2000 for forum members. There was talk about changing the venue/time this year so maybe there will be a new thread or the old one will surface again. If I can find the link I will edit it in here, or if @peregrina2000 sees this she will put up a link. It is great to meet other forum members, whether here at home or in Santiago. Sadly we did not see anyone at Tertulia's but have met both @ivar and @JohnnieWalker in Santiago.

    For those who have not been to Darts Farm before:-
    There is a big Cotswold Outdoor concession there and if you are a National trust member then bring your membership card as you get a discount. Very useful for would be pilgrims. :)

    We hope you can make it and look forward to meeting you.

    We will confirm the venue as Darts Farm on March 4th. Ongoing work in Bridge Road and further roadworks/diversions etc in Exeter are a real problem, affecting not only roads into Exeter but also the buses in the centre. The bus station will still be open that weekend for anyone passing through for a bus to Topsham - it closes the following week. :(

    Further directions and cafe plan nearer the time :)

    Welcome to the forum. We look forward to meeting you at Darts Farm. We get together in the cafe by the delicatessan, not the restaurant. I will draw a diagram as well as saying this because the cafe area has 2 sections. We will meet in the one where you have to go through 'Chrissies' outlet - and on Saturday it was still half hidden by a heap of dogs beds/cushions.

    Hi,
    I live in Newquay, Cornwall and have just booked the ferry from Plymouth to Santander for September. Although I have done lots of reading, it would be nice to meet people who have already done the Camino Frances. Are you happy for newbies to come and ask questions?

    I will be there and will try and bring my husband this time! We have booked a ferry to Santander on april 2nd, then hope to cycle the Via de la Plata with some friends from Thailand and the US.
    Be great if anyone has any info on the route. And just great to talk 'Camino' !

    Just a reminder and the promised floor plan for our get together on Saturday March 4th. The orange arrow marks the way to the round table, so we will hope it is vacant. First pilgrim there, if you arrive before we do, please put something out to signal to the rest of us as we could easily cause confusion if a non forum group are already at the table. There are enough other tables in that section if the round one is occupied.

    Welcome @Tiny Tim - we will be happy to see you there at Darts Farm. It looks as though there will be several 'new faces' as well as those from previous occasions :)

    See you all there, wanted to ask you about the route down to Plymouth ferry - if the weather is ok we might start from home...

    Just picked up my train and bus ticket. Looking forward to meeting some old and some new Camigos on Saturday.
    Looks like it will be a good gathering.

    For those driving to Darts Farm from west of Exeter:-
    Note that Bridge Road will be closed tomorrow so that there will be serious delays and diversions around the Countess Wear area and onto Topsham Road. :( Best route is round to the Sandygate turn off on the M5 and then the Exmouth turning etc then back towards Topsham - following the normal signs.

    For those using the bus out of Exeter:- the good news is that the bus station remains open.Its proposed closure is put off indefinitely. :)

    We look like being a large number so if it is nice we might feel like spreading out a bit and even sitting outside in the fish and chip shop area (see plan in post #50 above).

    Great to see so many there. Terry thinks that there were 16, maybe 17, of us.
    Buen Camino to this year's walkers, especially those starting in the next few weeks.

    Yes, thank you both for organising it. Great to see so many people, new and old pilgrims...! It is so good to be able to swap info and views and hear about routes others have taken - (and then rush to the map box to plan another Camino...!)
    We came straight home and started packing and (put to shame by the couple who start walking in 6 weeks and are training assiduously) we even went for a ride on our bikes! Thanks everyone!

    I am so gutted I totally forgot about the meet up at Darts Farm! I hope you all had a great day. I think my email didnt log recently and therefore I lost the thread. If you meet again please let me know and I will endeavour to come (and check the forum more often!!) Thanks Helen :)

    Sad :(. Hopefully we will meet again around September time.
    I have the thread marked as 'watched' and 'with email alerts' - see links at top of the page. That works for me so long as I am checking my emails. @Lynda t - that is also the link you were trying to find I think.

    Hola @hecate105 - thinking a weekday in September once the school holidays are over. Monday/Wednesday but not Tuesday/Thursday. Exeter or Darts Farm again.
    What do others think?

    Just realised that in September Wednesdays are not good for us. Tuesday 12th or 19th are both possible. Exeter cathedral cafe or Darts Farm as the possible venues.

    Tuesday 12th would be good for me, on 19th I will be winging my way to Porto.
    Would it be 11.00/11.30 again as I have to drive to Northampton from Plymouth at 17.00hrs.
    Dart Farm for me but happy to visit the centre.

    That's fine @Bisnick . Let's fix for Tuesday 12th at Darts Farm. Yes, usual time of 11.00/11.30 and 'round the corner' where we met last time. First there please try to get the big round table if possible. :)

    The plan of Darts Farm to find the cafe, for newcomers, is at post #50. Nearer the time I will put up a reminder for September 12th. (post#67)

    Hoping that some of you are reading the forum this Bank Holiday Monday.
    Our get together does not seem to have attracted many takers yet? Maybe because this is mid-week, as promised last time, for those who cannot do week-ends.

    With that in mind we are beginning to think about a Saturday in March 2018 similar to the one held in Exeter with CSJ some time ago. This time however we hope it might be outside of Exeter itself. More when we have further details ourselves.

    Meanwhile we hope to see some of you on 12th September at Darts Farm.

    Looking forward to meeting up with you again on 12th.
    I am planning to walk again in October but haven't yet booked travel to Spain due to dithering about which route to take. I am considering the Frances again but Ingles or Primitivo are also strong possibilities.

    Being a Exeter born pilgrim and (now living in Switzerland) filmmaker of "Looking For Infinity: El Camino" maybe we can work to bring the film to the event. :)

    The get together is in a cafe @ACL, so there are no facilities for showing any type of film. Sorry.

    Just to add that if anyone is in Devon at that time they are welcome to join us, as others have done in the past. The 'S Devon' refers to the venue/area not personal location :):)
