Off in the morning. Madrid, Ponferrada: Invierno. The Beloved and me and our packs; @peregrina2000 's excellent guide and some scribbled notes from @ranthr 's excellent thread and from other kind contributors too. Thank you @Charrito, @KinkyOne and @Ribeirasacra.

Really looking forward to this trip. Its been a rough year. Chestnut forests, holy rivers, kindly hills all sound like they'll make for a good road. Big bad dogs and a couple of long-hauls with sparse facilities sound like a good thing too. No one said it should be easy.

Members may be relieved that this passive-aggressive, opinionated, anarcho-pagan will be out of their hair for a bit and have my every sympathy.

Meanwhile I'll wish you all Buen Caminos and if anyone can recommend a good place for supper in Ponferrada I'll be grateful.

I'll post here when I can ;)

Buen camino, Tinca!

Hope you have a wonderful Invierno.

The last time I was in Ponferrada, Reb took a bunch of us to a place called King Kong. Believe it or not it is a Mexican restaurant, and it is right in the main square of the Ayuntamiento. I have absolutely no memory of the food but remember there were quirky decorations and I also remember having a wonderful time with LTfit and, I think, one other person. Sounds like just the place for an anarcho-pagan.

Gracias, Dios: Finalmente, tu existe.

Buen Camino, Amigo! I will be out there in 10 days from now.

A very Buen Camino to you both - may the road only be a blessing
And if you are quiet for weeks, we may miss you here...but I for one will be cheering you on. Disconnecting from all this virtual connectedness and diving into silent here and now connection with nature is the deepest kind of medicine.

No relief for those wicked pilgrims who rather enjoy a regular dose of ‘passive-aggressive, opinionated anarcho-paganism’. The acronym suggests that we may look forward to some fiendishly condensed postings along the way. Buen Camino, Tinkagrino!
