If you are planning to start a Camino in May 2023, you are invited to add a post to this thread – scroll down to the last post, and create a new post giving your expected start date, start location, and the route if it is not the Francés.

Moderators will edit this first post to update the list. We will delete new posts regularly, after the list is updated, to keep the thread compact and easier to update. Post again if you see mistakes or omissions. (If you want to change your date, please tell us the old date as well as the new one so we don't need to hunt for it!)

This thread is intended only for updating the list of planned starts, so further discussion of plans, preparations, ride shares, etc., should be done on other threads or private Conversation.

, which creates a quote. Do not try to edit the list on a quote. Instead, go to the bottom of the thread (where the box for "Post reply" appears before the photos) and add a new post with the information.

Don't add emojis to your posts, since moderators use emojis to signal to each other that the post has been taken care of.

All the monthly threads are pinned to the top of the "Introduce yourself..." section of the forum here.
