One last forum revision of the guide

Hi to all Invierno alums, with a special shout out to those who have helped me revise the forum guide year after year.

This guide started years ago when Rebekah ventured out on the Invierno for the first time. Her bout with giardia meant she had some big gaps in coverage, which @wisepilgrim filled in for her.

Fast forward several years- I’ve been coordinating the revisions, and every year the guide gets better. But I know that it has a limited audience —the only other English speaking pilgrim I met on the Invierno (other than forum member Annette) had never seen it. And as things speed up, I think a more professional veneer (with maps, precise distances, etc) would make it more valuable.

I have discussed this with all the relevant parties, and my plan is to go full circle and turn the product back to @wisepilgrim.

This will make our little book more professional and give it a wider audience. It has been a lot of fun doing these updates and I’ve made some good forum friends through the efforts, but I think it’s time.

I am in Barajas waiting for my flight home, so it seems like a good time to plan my first post-camino project. 😃And since I walked the Invierno this year, I will have (I hope) many fewer doubts than in previous years. But I’m sure there will be some, and I will post my questions here. I wanted people to know that I will be turning over this year’s revisions to wisepilgrim, and we can take comfort in knowing that he will add a polish that is simply beyond my capabilities, and in knowing that he is a true Peregrino (whatever that may mean to you) to his very core.

So stay tuned for one last chance to quibble about the exit from Lalín or any of our other never-ending debates. 😄

Standing by for questions. Thank you, Laurie, for the years of dedicated work.
And it's wonderful to see the evolution of a good idea, year after year. But you will have to find another project, when @wisepilgrim takes over this one...hmmm... 🤔

This sounds like a wonderful idea, and a little book will most probably find a bigger audience for the Invierno outside of the forum

Saying this, Charlie and myself sincerely must thank you for all your efforts in putting together the Invierno PDF ....for without that download from the forum, we probably would not even have attempted the Invierno.

Also need to thank Caryn, VN walking, Athene,Charrito, kinky1 and so many others for their descriptions and information re this Camino as I read almost everything there was to read on it before we left.

It was lovely meeting you for a few days and hope you have a safe journey home
Best wishes
Annette and Charlie

So far, I have been traveling with you virtually each year as you post revisions. Thanks to all for their effort and dedication.

The other advantage to letting Michael assume responsibility for the Invierno Guide under his Wise Pilgrim series, is that there is an accompanying app for smartphones.

The Wise Pilgrim guides & apps are arguably the best out there. The author lives in Santiago and keeping all his guides current is his job.

This was a sound decision IMHO...

Maybe moving on to the Olvidado, though I am almost done translating Ender’s guide and it’s pretty complete.

Happy to take suggestions for new projects! Especially if it involves walking a new camino.

It's quite obvious that you like more hilly Caminos. What about Ruta del Besaya (Santander - Carrion de los Condes)?

Best travels back home. I also cannot thank all of you enough that put together the info in a way that I can follow and understand. Just pulled into Pola de Gordon on Olvidado and a guide by Roger has been incredible helpful that will be available from the CsJ in Britain (I think?). In fact, this doc has saved me I'm problematic areas... There is a new app also for Camino Olvidado ...(but it has glitches).. also elcaminoolvidado.com amazing and the guide from yourself as well 2014.
Safe travels.
