And to you both. Thanks for organising the 2018 get together.
Buen Camino @Waka.
We will be suggesting a get together at some time but have no dates in mind at present.
We won't be going to Spain this year. We have just cancelled our booking as our payment was nearly due and still no certainty of arrangements re car documentation. Sad, but we decided that although planning some walking we did need the car and not rely on public transport.
Planning now on walking the northern end of Offa's Dyke and also around Tideswell (Peak District).
Buen Camino to you all :)

It is still some time ahead but we have in mind a get-together at the end of April. Suggesting Tuesday 30th at Darts Farm. Should have been our first full day in Spain, but we will enjoy the Camigos company instead.

Just to make sure that any of you who have been walking and not following the forum are aware of our get-together on 30th April at Darts Farm, just outside of Exeter. I will add the cafe/shop plan later for any new comers so you can find us easily.

Thank you. I look forward to getting the details and meeting up with everyone.
L.
Just realised I did not put a time - sorry folks - :eek:
If we meet from about 11.30 until around 2pm. However arrive when you like and leave when you need to do so is the general pattern. Coffee/tea etc and snacks available at the delicatessan counter. Fish and chips from the Fish shack just outside from the cafe area.
It is easiest to arrange to meet inside as on the plan (post#13), but if it is a lovely day we could always move outside to the Fish shack picnic tables.
I will try to remember to bring my little camino-shell sign to put on the table.
All past, future and would be pilgrims welcome.

Look forward to seeing some of you on Tuesday (30th April) .
If you are a CSJ member and want anything from Cotswold Outdoors then remember to bring a note of the CSJ discount code with you. I assume it is still valid this year.
Until Tuesday......:)

Unfortunately due to being rained off today I have to work tomorrow so won't make it to Darts....! Hope you all have a good Camino chat....
If anyone is wanting a UK based pilgrimage cycle - check out pilgrim's piecemeal progress on wordpress... I have put the route from Glastonbury to Hopton-on-Sea on there - and would love any feedback from pilgrims on my directions/route/info... Ric and I will be doing the section from Carn les Boel in Cornwall to Glastonbury in June - which will complete the route from coast to coast.... This is a pilgrim cycle route - the walker's route is already largely signed and has a guidebook at least from Cornwall to Avebury.... (Micael and Mary Pilgrim's Way)
It keeps us busy until we make it back to Spain!!

@Hoots, new forum members from Exeter, have asked to meet up to talk about their pilgrimage planned for early September. We have said we can meet them Wednesday 28th - in Exeter at the Cathedral cafe about 11.00am. (We will need to confirm this.) If any others are around then I am sure that they will be pleased to meet you too.

We can arrange an October date after that so will be looking to hear when suits most people. Most likely at Darts Farm. Preferred days being Tuesday to Saturday as the Fish Shack does not open on Mondays.

Only just back from fetching grandchildren. See you on the 28th in the Cathedral cafe. @Hoots might be delayed until about 12.00 but we will be there about 11.00 due to bus time in- need to leave for the 1.30 bus.

Glad you found us and look forward to meeting you.
Look out for the forum style badge on a table. Looks like it might be raining so inside best.

Not sure about dogs @hecate105 as there is nothing on the website. Thinking now that November, rather than October, is best for a Darts Farm meeting. Would that suit?

It was good to meet you all today. Buen Camino to those walking soon.
We will look at a date in November for Darts Farm, probably a Saturday again, which might make it easier for some to join us. We have had a couple of Tuesdays this past year which does not always suit those working.
Usual timing is around 11.00am until around 2.00pm - come and go as you please. No set agenda but we chat and enjoy the refreshments available from the deli/drinks counter or the 'Fish Shack'.
Watch this space........

Great to meet new people yesterday - and hope you all have a great Camino!
Tia Valeria - i don't know if you had a contact for the ladies leaving next Thursday...? But I forgot to mention when we were talking about route-finding... about maps.me! As most people use phones now for maps (its just me with a pannier full of paper ones!) maps.me is an excellent app. You get the app - then download the maps for the country you will travel in - when you have wifi. Then you can use the map later when offline. Not only that - but it will tell you exactly where you are if you get lost... It is easily scroll-able in and out and you can ask it for a route from your location to a desired place.
When we were cycling in Asia with no decent paper maps - it was indispensable..!
Also - on ViaMichelin - on the 'maps' page - if you go to the 'outdoor' map (drop-down of maps on right side) they have all the Camino routes marked in red!! So you can zoom in on a section and screen shot it for offline use....
Anytime in november should be good for me!

We too take paper maps....but just a strip of need places when on Camino.
I will PM @Hoots with a link to your post.
Thinking about finding the Camigos threads - I might see if I can still add 'tags' which would help with any searches etc. 'Vamos a ver' :)
Edit:- Tags added so we will see if others now find us more easily

Good to meet you all last week and thank you for all the advice. We have downloaded maps.me (thanks Hecate), stretched boot laces, purchased blister plasters, water bottles and sun hats so are feeling quite prepared. Another couple of weeks 'walking training' would have been good buy hey ho - we will take it at our own pace and have factored in plenty of rest days. Will report back in a few weeks. Thanks again.

We made it 🥳. We walked from Baiona to Santiago over 7 days and despite many challenges along the way had an amazing time. We arrived in Santiago on Friday and with compestellas in hand attended the Saturday morning pilgrim mass which was a fitting conclusion. We now have a few days in Vigo to rest, recover and plan the next one.

You bet right 😉. Lying on my bed here in Vigo trying to work out which one to try next😆. Only disappointment is that I don't seem to have shed as much weight as I had hoped - think I took the carb loading a bit too far 🤣

I hope you are enjoying your Camino CarolamS? We stayed at Neda when cycling back from Santiago - had the whole place to ourselves! Look forward to hearing about the Ingles when you return - I feel I should actually 'walk' a Camino....rather than cycle!

Arrived in SdC lunchtime today. Place heaving with people and no chance of a Compostela today. I have to be there for the 8am opening to get a ticket and hopefully be able to be seen sometime during the morning. Loved the CI, just finding SdC a bit challenging this time.

It can be a bit overwhelming.... I arrived and got a puncture outside the Cathedral, then missed the pilgrim mass cos i was in the dentists having a root canal filling....and it was my birthday! But at least the time spent in the queue lets you catch up with other pilgrims - I really enjoyed that - despite dreading the queuing!
If nothing else look at it as a well-earned rest! Well done!

That does sound a perfect example of how you'd prefer it not to be 🤔
I received my Compostela this morning with no real problem having arrived early and queued up before opening. Ticket 167, took about 90 mins.
Tomorrow I set off towards Muxia. Have booked a hotel - I need an albergue break 😅

Well done CarolamS 🥳 So glad you managed to get your Compostela - sounds like you did well to get ticket 167. The system was so chaotic when we got ours - many people were left disappointed. Hope the weather is kind to you on the way to Muxia.

Glad you all made it and also were able to get your Compostelas.
We are just back from a stay near Ledbury - walked up 'British Camp' an ancient hill fort and also saw an amazing church with original wall paintings.
We will have to get around to thinking about a date for November. A Saturday was suggested as we have had a few mid-week meetings. Probably 9th/16th/23rd - not the 2nd it is still half term holiday.

Edit:- Looks like the 23rd is best. See post #50 :)

If we go for the 16th or 23rd how does that suit? Either is good for us at present.
Darts Farm at around 11.00/11.30 until around 14.00.
How many could make one of those to dates? and which is best?

I'm pretty sure I can make either of those though I don't have access to my diary at the moment.
Not sure when you are back @CarolamS but we are not in a rush to fix the date. More a process of elimination at present :)
Glad you made it and got your Compostela.

@hecate105 cannot do the 9th and as you cannot do the 16th @Isca-camigo we will eliminate that too.

It looks like Saturday 23rd November is best for most of us so we will go for that. More later for those new to our meetings.

Just a reminder - and to flag up our get together for those who missed the earlier post.
Planning on meeting at Dart's Farm, near Exeter, on Saturday 23rd November. Usually we meet about 11.00 or 11.30 until after lunch.
I will confirm time we hope to arrive nearer the day.
It would be helpful if those hoping to come could post here - so we know how many tables/chairs we might need in the little cafe.

Just to remind you all about our get together next Saturday (23rd). Meet 11.00/11.30 onwards until after lunch.
If you are there before us could some-one try to get the large round table, if it is free, please.

Plan of Darts Farm and cafe for those who are new.

Looking at the weather forecast reminds me of our first meeting when I had 'floated the idea' that we could get together. This became a joke as the roads near Darts Farm were flooded on the day, although we all made it and the water was going down when we left!!
We would hope that tomorrow is not a repeat and that we do get there without problems.
If anyone feels the need to check out Topsham and the area around Darts Farm you can see if there are any warnings up on the gov.uk flood warning website .

Oh nooooo.....she is completely beautiful and I so want another Border Terrier.....do give her a cuddle from me and sniff her sweet neck. We are trying so hard to resist getting a puppy! I don't need to wish you joy....she IS joy.

I have just sent a PM about flooding/potential flooding to say that we have decided 'safety first'. Some roads we know are liable to flooding and our alternative route home is already closed. :eek:
If anyone does decide to go to Darts Farm - have a good time. Stay safe....
We will try again after Christmas........

So sorry you couldn't make it, you were both missed. 4 of us met in the end and had a very pleasant chat. I arrived late having walked, or rather paddled my way there. Now I really understand why Davebugg said that sooner or later you will get wet feet even with Goretex 😅. I look forward to seeing you at the next get-together.

So glad at last to have picked up the South Devon Camigos thread again and sorry to have missed out on all the meetings. I hope I will be able to keep in touch and will look out for the final post on this thread. Thank you Tia Valeria.
Lily looks adorable and irresistible. Must be difficult to deny her anything she wants. Lizbeth
