I will be starting the Camino on Sept. 21st and have about a week. This will leave me about 3 stages short of Lugo. Will I be able to catch a bus from Grandas de Salime to Lugo? Also will I need to bring a sleeping bag or will a blanket suffice?
Thanks to all

Not sure about bus services from Grandas de Salime, but if you make it to Fonsagrada there is a service to Lugo which you can check online by a local autobus company Her-Vei.

As far as I am aware there is still no public transport between Grandas de Salime and Fonsagrada. As Mike says the service between Fonsagrada and Lugo is by Her-Vei. http://her-vei.com/#horarios
There is always the possibility of a taxi which we have used on a cold wet day after walking most of the distance from Castro to Fonsagrada where we had stayed the night to shorten the day's walk from Grandas.

Blessings on your planning :)

It could be quite chilly at night so a sleeping bag would be a good idea, in case the albergue does not have sufficient blankets.
(Edit) For transport, maybe you could skip some of the earlier stages by catching the ALSA bus from Oviedo to Grado, or similar and then you could at least walk to A Fonsagrada or even Lugo itself.
ALSA runs one bus most days between Oviedo and Grandas de Salime, but you will need to check where it touches the Camino (eg Grado, Salas, Pola de Allande) and where it misses (eg Campiello)

Only seeing your post now. There was no bus service from Grandas when I was there earlier this year. I hopped in a taxi. There are at least two or three taxi companies in the town. Pre-booking is recommended if you can.
