- Camino(s) past & future
- September/October 2015 CF; October 2017 PC from Porto; Camino Ingles October 2019; Le Puy (2020)
Hi, I'm walking the Camino Ingles at the first of October this year, with a plan for an 8 day walk to Santiago, followed by a walk to Finisterre. I'm 77, I've walked the Camino Frances from SJPDP and the Portuguese Camino, as well as the British Coast to Coast Walk (last September). I carried my full pack on the CF and the PC, but I had a day pack and a transport service for the C2C. Now, on the Ingles, I'm going to carry my full pack again, but I'm not getting any younger, so I'm wanting to pare down any unnecessary baggage. So here's my question: Will I need light-weight gloves and/or a lightweight knit cap on the Ingles (followed by the Camino Finisterre) in the first two weeks of October? I found them useful occasionally on the CF in October, in the higher elevations., and I did use them on the C2C, but I'm wondering if the weather on the Ingles in early October is relatively mild. I realize that it's not much weight, but every little ounce counts, especially the older one gets. Many thanks for any advice.
