Only one more get up and I will be on my way to the Camino!!

I really want give a BIG THANK YOU to everyone here for the wealth of information and all the help that this forum has given me.
I have learned so much from all of you.
I have listened to your advice and am grateful to have had it.
I have followed many of you on your Camino and enjoyed every step of the way with you.
I have made friends here whom I keep in touch with almost daily and know that our pathes will cross, if not on the Camino, then some other place.

I start walking on September 8th from Roncesvalles and I hope to meet some forum members.

I will be blogging as much as I can from the Camino, so if you care to, you check out my progress at:

Thanks again and God bless you all.
