Just a small warning if you find yourself at this link http://www.pifinearts.com/ . While I was searching for lurbel socks after seeing them favourably mentioned in these threads I came across this website which appears to be a lurbel home page . The fine folks at pifinearts advertise as selling lurbel socks at a reduced price, so I thought I would give them a go and ordered some, but what I got for my 50 dollars AUD instead of 3 pairs of size 13 hiking socks was 3 pairs of size 8 cotton business socks, all labelled in chinese. My fault for looking for special prices.... I have emailed the 'company' over a week ago without receiving a reply. If they should happen to reply and indicate they will rectify their 'error' I will update this post....

If you paid with credit card, call the CD company and fight the charge. You'll get your money back.

Not a small warning, Zac, but a good reminder we all need periodically that not everyone out there has the Camino Spirit.
