Just saw in this Guardian article today that it is going to be unseasonally hot.
Take care folks - plenty of advice in previous threads on keeping cool, hydration, etc....
I experienced heat exhausation on the CF a few years back. Not a pleasant experience.

We are currently in Carrion de Los Condes. Weather topping out today around 87 degrees F. We are starting a long day tomorrow to Terradillos de Los Templarios. We plan to leave before 6:30 to try and beat the heat. Forecast of 90 degress F tomorrow. Any advice is appreciated.

Drink plenty of fluids. If you think it is too hot, then it is too hot, so find somewhere to cool down. Take transport if you need to reach your planned destination. Good idea to leave as early as possible. Wet your hat. Please report in tomorrow.
Thank you. We will let you know how the day goes🙏❤️

I believe that is the long day on the Meseta where there basically aren't opportunities to water up. Or find food unless the respite area is open. Plus not much shade. So maybe a good idea to jot down taxi numbers you might find along the way, just in case???

That is a great idea. Thank you.
We walked from
Carrión to calzadilla only yesterday. It was brutal heat but okay in the morning. The food truck guy at 9Km out is a nice respite but don’t linger long bc then it’s still a looooong interminable end it seems. We froze two 1.5L bottles and they saved us from core temperature lowering so please do try to see if u can find someone to freeze them for you. The nuns did for us

This is a fantastic idea in extreme heat. Last summer in a US Arizona desert area, a friend and myself walked in 90-100°F heat, all be it a dry heat. Taking frozen bottles of water as they melted slowly cooled us down remarkably well.
