Looking for "Guinea Pigs"

Status

I'm looking for about 10 pilgrims who would like to help me do some market research.

I make handkerchiefs that I think are great for long walks. Light, absorbent, washable, etc. Sweat, spit, snot, these babies can handle it all!!

I would like to send 10 volunteers each a handkerchief that they can use (and keep!) for about a month. Then, they can send me feedback on how they fared. I will pay for the postage. I'm in the U.S. but will pay international postage.

Please be either walking or in serious training so the handkerchiefs can get a good workout. Sadly, I haven't been able to get back on the CF in a few years (Covid) but planning again for Fall 2022. Thanks in advance and Buen Camino!

Hi, My wife and I are training to walk the CF in late April/May. I carry a handkerchief...always. I was trying to introduce her to them as I think they are invaluable while hiking for all the reasons you cite. If you want her to try one... she is game.

Sign me up Kathy. I’m walking in a few weeks and again later in the year. I always, for practical use and as an affectation, carry a large red spotted handkerchief, usually from ‘the enormous handkerchief company’. I also have a large nose.

I’m in the UK.

I'm interested! With non-allergic rhinitis, as soon as I start hiking, I have to constantly clear my nose, so having a handkerchief is an essential part of my backpack:) I'd be glad to try it out on my camino next month and see how it fares!

I'd love to give them a try to see if I should mix up my gear! I'm in Canada so it would be a cold weather trial until April.

I'm walking the Camino Inglés in the first week of April. I'd be happy to road test it for you!

Also, I'll pay for the postage to the UK.

As a predominately spring/summer hayfever-suffering walker, I'd like to 'trail test' it too. I'm an Aussie. 🤗

Thanks, everyone, for the generous feedback!! I'm happy and excited. PM me, or I'll PM you, with your mailing address.

Besides how they wear and tear on the trail, I'll ask for your feedback on things like size, color, and decoration. Don't worry, I'll get those questions to you.

I will let you know when I put your handkerchief in the mail so you can be on the lookout. Sincere thanks, again, and Buen Camino!!

It would seem that you now have plenty of Guinea pigs. However, if you are in need of one more, I would be happy to provide you with feedback. My husband and I are keen walkers so it would get regular use.

If you are still looking for anyone, I am going on the Camino for exactly one month starting in April. I find a handkerchief so important! I always take a couple.

I begin my walk on April 19 from Roncesvalles. I was going to pick up a kerchief to replace t.p. along the Way so I would be happy to give one a try.

I’ll give it a try. I will be walking the Via de la Plata this spring, Seville to Astorga and then, Viana to Burgos on the Camino Frances. Two months and about 500 miles in all, covering a great deal of the country.

If you are willing for one more volunteer, my husband and I are walking the Camino Portuguese from the end of April. He is a handkerchief user (the traditional white ones) and I borrow one of his when I walk. Send me a message with details.

My friend and I are walking the last 100 miles from O Cebreiro starting April 28. We would like to be guinea pigs for you. I usually get hit with allergies at the beginning of spring so I'm hoping this will help.

Kathy,
I’m leaving next Thursday, March 17 (PM), for Madrid and walking Burgos to Ponferrada over two +/- weeks.
If you still need testers and the date is feasible, I’ll be glad to take one.
Best,

Hi Kathy, sounds like you have more than 10 people who are interested; however if you are still looking I would be interested. I am in training now and leave for the Norte in Mid-April. Good luck with your market research and pray that all goes as planned.

I would be more than willing. Will start at SJPP May 8 for 2 months. I have considerable rhinitis and actually bought several mens hankies for the trip.
