Thank you for everyones help these last few months. I'm heading to San Francisco for 2 days and my flight to Paris leaves on Sunday. I am very anxious/excited/nervous. I also can't believe how loving and generous my friends and family have been, I've been teary eyed all week with the beautiful gifts and support and love I have been recieving. I have gotten so much motivation from them.

Le Puy or Bust
Here's to the next 1530km

Left Le Puy at the same time two years ago. You will have a wonderful walk! Some hard work, but it is worth it.

Geoff, I see in your blog that you have lost SEVENTY FIVE POUNDS in the last two months!

CONGRATULATIONS! That is quite the accomplishment.
This show of will power tells me you're going to do great on the Camino!

I'm going to PM you!

One suggestion:

Slowllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!

No rush...your mind will document the entire trip if you take the time to absorb it all in. Pictures just trigger memories.

Buen Camino

The Way of Le Puy is a fabulous route. Take care of yourself the first ten days -- till Conques really. It's all in ups and downs. Gorgeous countryside. See if you can stop at the Haltes de Compostelle. You will find there a great hospitality and will be able to meet a lot of folks as the meals are usually communal.

Bonne route! Bon chemin :)

Go for it, Geoff! And give my love to Le Domaine Sauvage which I approached in the middle of a thunderstorm.
You'll be "lovin' it!"

I walked with Geoff several weeks in France, and I can report he left SJPP headed for Santiago on 1 Oct. He had lightened his pack a good bit at the SJPP post office. He's doing well, persevering every day and making friends in every town.

Go go Geoff!

I am Happy to say I arrived in Santiago on November 10th and recieved my Compostelle on the 11th. Total weight loss for 11 weeks of hiking was 50lbs. Kits it was a pleasure to walk with you and I can't wait to hear about your upcoming travels.

Well Done, that's 50lbs=3.5stone, hope we get to hear more of your pilgrimage, before you completely disappear on us :lol:
