Sooooooo, I sorta forgot to order my Wise Pilgrim Camino Primitivo guide in a timely fashion and am going to have to pay more than the book to DHL in 3 days. Any chance the book is sold in the local stores in Oviedo?

You can get the Wise Pilgrim app on your phone.
The cost is so minimal -

Ah, yes, thx Annie - forgot to mention I am old school and will be phone free. I’ll likely bring my IPad but not too handy to lug it in and out of pack to check in on route. Paper copy will work best.

Again, soon as possible!
In 2015 I bought a Primitivo guide from the cathedral bookshop, the only one they had. It was a tiny little red book. It was really out of date and many of the names of villages along the route were wrong! It worked well enough though, I used it the next year too. You could check there and see if they now sell an up to date guide.

Well, I just bit the shipping cost and ordered it and hope DHL’s 2-3 business days applies to us rural folks. If not, well, I’ll just follow the shells and other peregrinos and look for a book in Oviedo. Thx !

There are other guide books too for the Norte.
I did have a hard one in 2014- however the markings are easy to follow. At this time (September) there will be plenty of others around. Good luck with your order but you will be ok.

Thx so much for the tip!

Good to know, @Elle Bieling! I just might do that. The maps and all will print?
I REALLY enjoyed the ebook and hope others will take a look at it. Your willingness to share your trials and triumphs, the descriptions of the natural beauty, the deep spiritual experience available to those who are seeking such, and establishing a connection to the long history and pilgrimages of those who have walked those same roads was indeed inspiring. Chink and cheers!

The maps in the eBook are very basic, and yes they and "all" will print. We never had any issue with following arrows and waymarks. I know you aren't using electronics, but usually I advise downloading the GPS tracks if one is worried about not getting lost. It happens at times to the best of us.
Thank-you so much for your nice comments and chink and cheers back at you! Buen Camino!
