CF is busy in September. Prebook Roncesvalles and maybe Orrisson to break up the day if starting in SJPP. Prepare for cool mornings and evenings, possibly scorching days, and rain. Harvest time is so lovely on camino.
Buen camino.

Have some light shirts and shorts for hot weather, as it may be hot early on. I had some very hot days when I walked in late September through the third week of October. Have clothes for cool and cold weather that you can layer on for later, as in late October and closer to the mountains (O'Cebreiro etc) it will get cold.

I didn't use spray on my bags, but you may want to.

I never reserved, and it is now later in the season. I am not planning on reserving.

Breathe deeply, and don't forget to let your credit card companies know that you will be traveling! Pack lightly, and be glad for your wonderful opportunity.

Don't litter toilet paper on the trail! take along something to put your daily "waste" in if you need to.
