A great resource for us while walking the VDLP was a table (excel) with 5 columns:

Name of town/village
Distance to next town
Cumulative distance
Refugio/hostel
Remarks on notables

I downloaded it from a site that I now can't find. It's in Spanish, and the table notes indicated that it had been updated in Feb/07 with GPS by the web site author.

This was very accurate and a great help to us. I've looked in the usual spots - mundicamino, godaselco, etc., but can't find it

Can anyone provide me with information on the website?

Thanks.

Peace -

I suspect it is this one:

http://www.godesalco.com/plan

Select your route, then you can customize it to the miles you waish to walk and list out the villages with cumulative miles (km, actually), list the facilities at each village and once done you can even look at elevation profiles. The author of this site deserves mucho accolades as it is extremely well done!!

When are you planning on going?

I have been playing with it for my trip to help to determine the needed time to complete it.

Yes, I'm familiar with that tool on the godasalco site. That's not the one. It's already "predone" (is that a word?). All the kms from one albergue to the next, the accumulated kms. are there, as well as codes for whether there are "refugios", "hostels" etc. We used it religiously every single day. I do remember downloading it, but for the life of me, I cannot access it again no matter how I try. The site actually recommends downloading it to your computer in your excel program, which I did (and since deleted it!). So, for me, it's not a burning issue - we've done the VDLP, but it was so good I really wanted to share it. I'll wait and see if anyone else has found it... It must be REALLY obscure...

Peace.

It was in godalesco! You were right - I reformatted it and it's attached here.
