October - walking alone?

I am planning to start the Via de la Plata Sunday 21 October for a week. I am a bit concerned that this is a road less travelled than the Camino Frances which I walked in the summer, and dont want to walk completely alone! Is anyone else planning to go then? Can we meet up?
It would be great to set off at the same time in the morning and perhaps have lunch and dinner together... and generally keep an eye out for each other.
Buen Camino!


I will not be as crowded but you will not be alone, either. I started mine in October.There are still pilgrims on the Camino and you can find solitude when you wish it and friendship when you need it. I found it to be a perfect time to walk.
