I am starting the Camino from SJPP on April 27 and have a reservation at Orisson for the overnight. I am a very slow walker with two replaced knees and a replaced hip, but mainly I am mainly slowed down by a pulmonary condition that results in shortness of breath upon exertion, such as uphill walking. My strategy is to walk short stages each day, at a slow pace and with frequent breaks to catch my breath. I’m going to start early in the morning from SJPP walking to Orisson with the expectation that with the availability of a full day of slow walking I will get to the Refugio in time for checking in and dinner. I also expect that I will be “spent” from the first day’s walk up to Orisson and would like to reduce the length of my (uphill) walk on the second day to Roncesvalles. I am wondering whether on the second day if it would be possible to go by taxi or shuttle from the Refugio Orisson to a location at or near the Col de Lepoeder and from there walk down to Roncevalles on the road route? Is this possible? Alternatively, is there another spot where I could be dropped off by taxi before the Col that would shorten the uphill hike on the way to Roncesvalles? I thought I would ask the Forum for advice on this— I am starting my Camino in SJPP with the walk up to Orisson, where I have already reserved and paid, and want to be realistic about my ability to manage the demands of the second day’s walk to Roncevalles. Any thoughts or advice from other forum members would be much appreciated.
