Pilgrims “on a mission….”

3rd CF in May 2022
Past OR future Camino
April-May 2022
I just recently completed my CF. At an albergue in Grañon I met a pilgrim “on a mission”. It was a helpful one at that. On a previous Camino he noticed that the kitchen knives in most albergues were woefully dull. So he brought a sharpening stone with him this time and carefully sharped them all up. What a great idea.

My idea for another mission: bring a can of WD-40 and lube up all of the bedroom doors in the albergues. Almost without exception the doors in the albergues squeak LOUDLY—- especially in the middle of the night. The only complication is that you can’t bring WD-40 with you on the plane. It’s very combustible. You’d have to pick it up somewhere in Europe.

WD40, good for the joints as well. 😂

I think that my mission might be to carry a white noise generator to help drown out my snoring
I encountered 2 pilgrims who were each travelling with their C-pap machines. They generate very low volume white noise while making sure the pilgrim wearing the gizmo doesn’t snore, and gets a good night’s sleep. Which means the rest of us also get a good night’s sleep. Serious snorers may want to investigate. Sleep apnea is linked to several serious long-term health issues.

Might need a lubricant instead of a water/rust treatment. I spotted several hardware shops on my recent Frances from SJPP so finding some oil or spray lube locally shouldn’t be a problem.

Absolutely my one stopped me from snoring but it’s too big to bring. I’m looking at mini travel ones now!

I agree! My husband uses the travel version (which is the size of a soda can). Healthy for the user and respectful for co-sleepers 🤓
