The forum turns 19 this month!
Congratulations Ivar and thank you for this powerful site, which has helped hundreds of thousands of pilgrims over the years. I joined in November 2004 when the site was focussed more on Santiago de Compostella itself but soon evolved into a Camino related forum.
 
The 2024 Camino guides will be coming out little by little. Here is a collection of the ones that are out so far.

Many congratulations Ivar! Your forum is an inspiration to so many people around the world. I thank you for the continuing closeness it gives me to my beloved city of Santiago de Compostela. Having been a pilgrim on two Caminos I hope and pray that I can return to celebrate my 80th birthday in four years time.
 
I just checked and I joined the forum 13 years ago. All those years I have been impressed by the positive and welcoming vibe here. Thanks to Ivar, the moderators and lots of contributors! I consider this forum as my virtual Camino family. 😊

I'm so glad that I found this forum and walked my first Camino before I knew anything about the plethora of Camino YouTube videos and Facebook groups.

I learned 99% if what I needed to prepare for my first Camino here from this wonderful community

I met my first local Camino friend via the forum, and have met many others virtually and in person since then - including the man himself!
 
Muchas Gracias, Ivar, moderators & contributors. I mostly connect with you all in bed......The forum is my go-to when I wake up & my check-in before sleep, almost every day. I enjoy seeing now familiar names, & getting to have a hint of personalities & senses of humour. Of course there's all the wisdom & advice, too. It's hard to believe that I have actually not met any of you .... I was going to say 'real life' but thought that might open a debate about whether or not the Camino is Real Life.🤭😘
Bless you all, mi familiar.

What an amazing Forum you have created @ivar
I hope you realise that if you ever decide to retire, members will require:

  1. 12 months notice of retirement.
  2. A clear succession plan.
Or I can see banner carrying Pilgrims protesting outside Casa Ivar :)

Thank You for all you do for this community.
 
Ideal sleeping bag liner whether we want to add a thermal plus to our bag, or if we want to use it alone to sleep in shelters or hostels. Thanks to its mummy shape, it adapts perfectly to our body.

THANK YOU IVAR! And all who help with the forum. Absolutely invaluable to all us Camino addicts as well as the soon to be addicts. En route to Santiago as we speak, and will be volunteering at Pilgrim House for the next 8 days. Then off to Ferrol to walk the Ingles back to Santiago! 😂😁 I have been watching the weather a bit but all good. As my husband asks me each morning on the Camino, “Hilary, what do you want to do today?” I tell him, “just walk! In any weather!! 😊

I've made a couple of posts this morning. I wanted to add a few words to one of them and discovered that there is no option to edit the post. Is this a temporary glitch or a permanent change? Or...
Just to thank you Ivar for prompt message, and all the best in the unenviable task of cleaning out the spammers...
