Hey All

We are thinking my wife will be in a campervan and we both stay together overnight from SJJP to Santiago De Compostela. Then onto Fisterre and Muxia back to Santiago De Compostela

I now plan after talking to a lot of you and my dr and physio to take a mountain bike not e bike as it be very heavy to push over hills and climbs and be lighter with a mountain bike

I plan to take up to 4 to 5 weeks to do all this but i know if i walked it would take about 10.

Where would and if we are allowed to who do I contact about parking the vehicle and if anyone has done this how much would it be not using any power but use a auberge just for a shower and share a meal with fellow pilgrims if allowed at night in a Albergue etc?

I want to average about 30-40 kilometres or 20-25 miles a day 6 days a week and just really enjoy my time and not rush it and injure my self

Thanks all

Buen Camino

From Glenn and Karen

To park overnight is possible. Use your imagination. You need some calm anyway.
Ask the albergues, if you can pay some for a shower. Usually you can, many times for free.
Use info to spot campings, too. Peregrino meal and price is for everybody.
I made all the way from SJPdP to SdC 2016 with my wife walking in a group of 3,
I made service in camping-car with our dog. The other 2 overnighted in albergues.
No problems.
Bon camino!

Good to see your plan coming together! Good that Karen is following you in a camper. If things get a little hard for you she will be there!

I don't think you will have many problems parking up for night. If in doubt as a local, especially hospitalero's.

Good luck planning

I have no information to share but wish you both a buen camino...it sounds like it's coming together.
And yes, Glenn...take care not to re-injure yourself. It is not worth it.

I would think that it would be much easier to drive a car and find a hotel room than to drive a campervan and figure out where to park it each day!
