Leaving on a jet plane, don't know when I'll be back again..

Well, ready or not, in less than 20 hours I'll be on my way to Spain and from there on to SJPdP, weather permitting! to begin my long planned/awaited second camino on 25 April.

Thank you all for your suggestions, recommendations and general advise. Your expert advise has made the planning much easier.

Now back to packing and discarding unnecessary weight (such as a cell phone/charger).

To those who are walking during this time, may we see each other on the way. And to others leaving later, Buenos Caminos! :arrow:

Sil, I guess I was overly optimistic last night. After adding medications, "gel sac" and my journal, it's closer to 7 kgs! But gotta go, no more time to unpack/pack!

Buen camino!
