You new pilgrims, please don't forget to order your Forum Patch!

It's awesome to run into someone on the Camino who you recognize by the patch, only to find out you've conversed with them many times on the forum!!!

I met Wolverine in Santiago and a few others by having my patch on my pack.
I glued it on with fabric glue and it's still on tight!

They're inexpensive and a great way to support the forum.
The 2024 Camino guides will be coming out little by little. Here is a collection of the ones that are out so far.
Hola Annie,
You're right to flag that forum readers / members should support Ivar's adventure.
It was exciting and special for me to meet Sil last July.
Just back after an all too short but good Camino from Valenca do Minho to Santiago.
Yeah, that was great fun! I started my camino with ChristinaDK & ended it with Anniesantiago! :D It's fun meeting someone you already "know," & being able to catch up on board gossip. lol!!

BTW, the best cup of coffee I had on the Camino was at that tiny bar next to Ivar's office.

Very light, comfortable and compressible poncho. Specially designed for protection against water for any activity.

Our Atmospheric H30 poncho offers lightness and waterproofness. Easily compressible and made with our Waterproof fabric, its heat-sealed interior seams guarantee its waterproofness. Includes carrying bag.

I am so excited.....I got my patch today and only 5 months and we are off to Spain!!!!!!!
Argh. I lost my patch, and ordered a new one around Christmas, but I don't think I'll be getting one in time. I WILL have my "American Pilgrims on the Camino" patch on my green Osprey pack, so say hello!

I was surprised when I did a search that nothing came up on the topic so here we go. Is it common in the albergues to have a few shelves of books free to take and exchange out ones you have?
