- Past OR future Camino
C.F. 2014, 2019, 2020, 2021
So I’m in Redondella. The last two days have been hot (90/32+). I usually walk in March so heat hasn’t been an issue. For the Portugues in late May I purchased a Gosamer Gear trekking umbrella. It has made an amazing difference. I think it is giving me an extra 5k a day. I haven’t seen any others with an umbrella. The comments and looks I’ve gotten have all been positive. A couple of folks have even offered to buy it from me. So those of you heading to the Camino this summer ought to consider it. I had no trouble with TSA bringing it in the plane (2 flights) which was a concern. I had the pack mounts but lost them somewhere along the Way, so have just been carrying it.
