    Thank you I will look for the resource section.

    I am trying to get the starting points & basic guides starting with the CM to Salvador to Primivito. Then I will walk from Santiago to Muxia to Finnesterre. Seems to be calling ...
    My personality I like others around, this route is not as bad as the wilderness here in Montana. There is electricity & beer.
    Thanks again
    Keith

    That Ender's Guide is really great to look through. I love the way that he will caution you (be careful in this section! look carefully!).

    It looks like a great walk. I would love to do it, but not alone. I like some people around as well, and I'd like to do this with a friend who travels well, or perhaps with the mister. It just doesn't suit me to be completely solo.

    I've discovered that in the off seasons I've walked, there are sometimes days when I really don't talk to others much, and that does suit me. When I want to find people, I can, and that's what I worry about with some of these beautiful routes that are significantly less occupied.

    It could also be that as a Pac NW inhabitant, I'm used to being alone in nature, so on one hand, I get that "fix", and on the other, now that I'm retired, it's kind of nice to get the people fix too!

    My dream walk is VDLP. I will probably have to do it in three sections, starting in 2019. In 2018, my husband wants to walk the Camino, and that will most certainly mean Leon to Santiago de Compostela. I know it will be a special journey for us, and while he really doesn't enjoy being on a plane for more than a few hours, he's finally agreed to come with (wish me luck there, people).

    I'm going to have to do a lot of work to save some $$ up to get him his comfortable plane ticket....but that's doable.

    I'm off in six days! Miles to go before I sleep, and miles to go before I sleep.

    Thank you so much. This is exactly what I was looking for! Your blog is fantastic, good job. Your links really made finding the beginning of the routes easy. Looks like I better carry a bit of food to get by if nothing exists as I go. Folks have mentioned how beutiful these routes are but from the pictures more than I expected. Is there adequate water points on the Madrid? The last week of March would be my preference to start in Madrid is there any Elevation between Madrid & Sahagun? I may be better off to start the second week of April due to the elevations on the Salvador & Primivito thoughts?
    Thanks again

    Hi, MTtoCamino, This is a great combination of routes, one I walked several years ago. I am not very good at remembering about water availability along the Madrid, but I do remember one great water fountain on the stage between Cercedilla and Segovia, after you come over the pass at Fonfría. Which leads to your next question about elevation between Madrid and Sahagún. The only elevation is the climb up to that pass after Cercedilla. It is not a huge ascent, but people have found a lot of snow in April and May. I can't remember when @jpflavin1 walked, but it was probably April and he had drifts that were feet high. I have walked it in May and February with no snow, so there is no telling.

    The Salvador high points frequently have snow till May. Not so much on the Primitivo, except for maybe the pass after Hospitales.

    Great walk, combining all sorts of terrain, villages, scenery! Buen camino, Laurie

    No water problems on Madrid route. Just usuall Meseta / Tierra de Campos Camino. Fill your flask wherever you can and that's it. I would recommend to have at least 2 x 0,5l but that might depends on the weather and period of course. 3 x 0,5l was more than enough for me in the summer. With beers at stops of course ;)

    We had a particularly hot day with very little shade on stage 2, from Tres Cantos to Manzanares el Real and one of my pals ran out of water and the rest of us had to share with him. Other than that, I don't recall any problems, but for the rest of the way it was pretty cool so we didn't need to drink so much.

    I would recommend taking warm gloves. I had thin liners which were nowhere near warm enough to keep me from feeling extremely chilled after passing Fuenfria on stage 4. I don't remember ever being so cold. We set off from Madrid on 23 April and we had great extremes of weather from burning sun to snow two days later. Be prepared. If the sun is hiding in the clouds or mist, it will be cold.
    Buen camino

    Keith,

    It sounds like a great route and will be on my list as well, one doesn't need to twist my arm too much to do the Primitivo again.

    I only saw one pilgrim after I started the Camino, and I felt so uncomfortable basically on the trail by myself, that I quit before getting to La Robla. Sauntering up that hill with the erosions was the icing on the cake. Was I the only one who found that hill tortuous?

    Quite possibly. I didn't remember one so went back to my blog - haha, you might not want to see what my eight-year-old said that day. “This is the best day on the camino.” When I asked her why, she replied, "There’s more than wheat to look at, it’s not straight and it’s mostly downhill." (We had obviously come from the Frances!)
    I don't think I ever did show her the elevation pic for that day:

    That's what a day hiking round my home looks like so I guess that could be why we didn't think there was really a hill!

    Best day to that point - and it just kept getting better! Salvador and Primitivo are my kids’ favourite routes so far. Would you go back and try again? You missed the good stuff.

    Seems that way that I missed the good stuff. That’s okay. There are so many
    different caminos that I can do and enjoy. Thanks for your input.
