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.

I hope to make that date - as long as my husband doesn't whisk me away for ,my birthday a couple of days before...! (hint, hint husband)
It would be nice to catch up - and I hope the weather will be better by then!

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.

Good Morning Tia Valeria,
I live in Uplyme and would be delighted if I could invite myself to your proposed Camigos meeting at Dart's farm on April 30th.

If the large round table is free could the first to arrive use it please.
Not sure if the outlet is still Chrissie's but location is the same.
Happy Easter

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.

The Camino sign might turn into our spare forum badge.... I cannot find the other sign :(
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.
:)

Great - I should be able to make it on the 28th. Can't make October as I'm dog-sitting in Guernsey!

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.

Just to make sure that folk see about our meeting up in Exeter on Wednesday 28th (see post above) and we will arrange a Darts Farm get together for October after that.

I have only just found this thread and would very much like to come along and meet local Camigos. So I will head to the Cathedral cafe for 11 am. Gosh I am so pleased to have found this thread today!

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

First Camino planned for September. Portuguese coastal and spiritual route starting in Baiona
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.
