Hello Peregrinos,

Wondering if anyone will be on the invierno this coming up week? Nov 22?
I am planning to start on Wednesday or Thursday, and wondering if another Peregrino is actually walking right now, or will be walking this coming up week.

Buen Camino!!!!

Oh, Texas guy,
Lucky you. I have walked twice in spring and summer and didn’t see others, so i think the chances that you will meet others are slim.

I am right now working on updates to the forum guide. If you haven’t seen it, it’s here: https://www.caminodesantiago.me/community/resources/invierno-forum-guide.535/

It doesn’t look like there are going to be too many major changes, and I think the guide is pretty good. But I know there are many of us who would love to hear how it goes for you!

Enjoy the walk along an amazing route that will be, in all likelihood, being walked by only yourself, apart from the first few hundred steps at Ponferreda and the last day or two when you come closer to Santiago. Nonetheless, it will be, I am confident, an enriching experience.

Buen camino !

Texas Guy, how wonderful for you. The Invierno will be beautiful, if chilly. I walked alone back in June this year and saw one or two pilgrims some days, occasionally 3 or 4 at night, but, as the others have said, will probably be less at this time of year. However, the locals are welcoming and supportive and I found the guy in the Pilgrim Hut in Ponferrada helpful and he may be able to tell you if anyone else is going that way and give you recent updates on the Invierno. I'm sorry I've misplaced my notes and his name, I'm hopeless, but the little hut is right there opposite the intersection where the Invierno leaves the Camino Frances. It's not always open but knock on the door anyway.
Buen camino. Carole.

I left Ponferrada on Sunday but am going rather slowly so you will probably catch me up en route or at Santiago. Bit rainy this morning in O Barco, but I'm loving the beauty of the walks beside the Sil, with the trees and vines still in autumn glory, and a very tasty local godello white with lunch yesterday. And As Médulas was mind-boggling.

I’ve made this a “live from the camino thread,” but Alan, if you want your “own” thread, you could start another one.

What have been your stages and how are you finding things ? (asked by an inquisitive forum member who is working on updating the current Invierno guide ;))

Yo Taxas Guy,
I am in Carrion de los Condes tonight in the company of fine pilgrims and polishing of a decent Menu del Dia. It’s cold with clear blue skies. Perfect.
The groups of pilgrims here know each other and look out for each other.
The local people have time for us and it shows how kind and supportive they are when they are not overwhelmed by hundreds of peretourists in the summer. I am sure you will enjoy the real Camino which now can only be realised in Winter

@alansykes , that photo of Las Medulas (and all the chestnuts turning color) is glorious. Thank you!
I am guessing that anyone walking this camino in the autumn would have glories around almost every corner.
