Hi Sandra / Heather,

Thanks for the meeting. I met with some interesting folk and hope to meet up with at least 2 of them on my walk. I Finally got my 1000 mile socks, the last piece of kit for my walk. I'm now good to go, can't come soon enough, 19 days till I leave & in 21 days I'll be walking :)

I will try and catch up at one of your meetings on my return to give a debrief.

Buen Camino.

Hi heather,
I would love to have gone, but I will be on a plane on my way there. I leave at 6am on the 7th :)

I have backed the training off a little as I don't want to get the pre walk burn out a lot of people talk about.
I have everything ready to go now.

Hi Heather,

We would love to join you at Kings Park to hear & learn about your experiences. Not actually walking until 2016 (waiting for youngest child to finish high school) but feel the sooner we start planning the better. Our husbands doubt that we will do it, so we are more determined than ever, so any tips we can pick up will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Rhonda & Monique :)

Looks like we are in for a wet walk. I would rather have snow than mud.
We have our boots worn in, we are looking for boot covers that will keep the boots dry. I should have trained in wellies

Look forward to meeting you on Sunday Rhonda and Monique you can't start your planning too early.

Terry I expect you have gaiters by now. I bought small ones with velcro fastenings that just cover my ankles and stop the rain running into my Keens from MDS(I think that is the initials)...I find them useful.

Hi Valdaps
We had another great meeting today at kings Park. Sorry you didn't hear about it.
many of us have just left for Spain or are due to go in April/ May(myself included!!) Next meeting won't be until 21st July. You can pm me if you need to but as I'm sure you know this is an amazing forum and you can spend many a happy hour searching through it.
Hope you can make it in July.

I came to the March meeting and someone had a copy of a booklet on the Camino Frances(I think) which they had bought from the Chart & Map shop in Freo. It was a lot lighter than the Brearley classic and foolishly I didn't write down the correct title and author. The shop don't seem to have any at the moment. Is anyone able to help these details? I start May 5 from SJPP and am hoping the weather improves a little.

Thanks

Hi Elizabeth
I think you mean the Michelin guide. I went to the map shop and bought one for my son I liked it so much . Personally I love the Brierley guide. Hopefully she can order one in or you could try online.

Hey all.
So glad we have taken warm clothes and sleeping bags. The wear one wash one crowd are going home till summer. No blankets in many places or some grab blankets and none for others. We took it easy for the first week and didn't push it. So many burn out with injurys and go home. Have treated quite a few myself. Not a single blister for me or Natasha.... Thanks to advice from the meetings we had in this WA forum. Dual socks worked great. You should see the size of some people's blisters.
Regards to all

Hi Terry,

Great to hear your news. The weather must be bad if many have gone home. For my two caminos I left in September-----maybe the heat is better to start in-------even if it nearly killed me on the Mozarabe !! On the later stages of the VDLP and the Sanabres I never had a problem finding blankets. Of course, that could be because there were few pilgrims on the trail.

Keep on walking----I look forward to hearing about it in July.

Buen Camino,
Sandra

Haven't needed ear plugs yet, I wish I had nose plugs.... Some people really really stink!! Wear one wash one doesn't work when it's raining lol. So glad I had extra clothes. Omg, I had to move tables so I can eat. No self respect for some people. Just blew an ACL in Saria.... Will be a slow walk. I drained one yesterday. Should be okay. With all the extra adventures, we should crack the 1000k mark in 108kms

Hi Terry,
Called you the other day thinking you would be back. Glad you are well on your way. I was thinking of you whilst on my Camino wondering how you were getting on. I struggled for the first view days with my pack and I know yours was much heavier than mine. Looking forward to catching up with you on your return.

Kind regards

Hi, I look forward to meeting you all at the Kings Park meeting on July 21st and hearing about your past caminos and any future plans. I'm walking my second camino from Lisbon to Santiago in less than two months - leave Perth on August 26th. I'd be very interested in hearing from anyone who might have walked the camino Portugues or might have tips or advice to give. I'm walking alone, so any company on the camino would be great too :) Val

Hi all,
I'm very interested in coming along to the meeting at Kings Park next Sunday 21st July.
I just wanted to confirm that it's actually happening. I'm walking from SJPDP to Santiago in April/May 2014 and would love to speak with others directly. I read this forum nearly every day but am often a bit nervous to say much until I've actually experienced the Camino for myself....all my questions are asked and answered for regularly, which I thrive on.
thanks heaps

I completed my Camino - Pamploma to Santiago - on 28th June and What an experience it was. I am now actively planning my next Camino and hoping to start around mid April next year. I am thinking of the Camino Portuguese (along the coast) this time, so, if anyone has any hints or insights to share, please email me.

A few of us who have walked in Spain have decided to " test the waters" for a local group for those who have walked in Spain , or those who are contemplating such a journey. Our first gathering will be on Sunday 23rd of October at The Merchant , 17 South Terrace, Fremantle at 2.30pm. We look forward to hearing all your stories.

Something seems to be going awry with posts to the Forum - I have seen this particular message quite a few times now and find it quite disconcerting, firstly as it is already a year or so out of date and secondly, it is conveying the out of date times and location of the West. Australian Camino meeting. There is in fact, a meeting of this group, this coming Sunday - 20th October near the Restaurants in Kings Park......meeting starts around 9am and usually goes on for a couple of hours.
I hope that I am not treading on any one's toes here, just wanted to try to get things on the right track. Smiles and looking forward to catching up with everyone on Sunday.

Hi Falcon, Firstly, please let me say that I apologise if I have trodden on anyone's toes with my post 'Something seems to be going awry etc, that certainly was not my intention. The reason I wrote the post was because I get the daily email with headings about what various folk have posted, questions asked etc. and in my daily email received on Friday, there was a heading about the coming West Aust. meeting, and, when I clicked on it and was re-directed to the expanded message and then to the forum, the old, original message about a meeting to be held in Fremantle, was the one which showed up, hence my reason for posting. My apologies

Hi Vasco,
I walked from Oporto to Santiago in July last year, it was wonderful to get away from the crowded Frances.
I'm staying in Fremantle and my telephone no. Is 0414684447 email angela.finnigan@hotmail.com
I'm also considering walking from Lisbon to Oporto in May this year. Will be good to talk.
Perhaps you can call me and we can meet up from 20-25 when I go bush, or send your telephone no.
Regards,
Angela

I shall watch this spot with great interest, Frances. I am walking the Coast-to-Coast with an Irish friend next year, and about all I know at the moment is that I will start at St.Bees, and finish at Robin Hood Bay. Oh, and that there are 43 different beers available to taste on the way. Might be a slow trip!

Be brave. Life is joyous.

A few of us who have walked in Spain have decided to " test the waters" for a local group for those who have walked in Spain , or those who are contemplating such a journey. Our first gathering will be on Sunday 23rd of October at The Merchant , 17 South Terrace, Fremantle at 2.30pm. We look forward to hearing all your stories.
Sandra.
Hello Sandra, I am only new to this forum. It will be some time before I walk the Camino but if there is a club near by to join it will be good preparation and I might be a good support to others who have walked and are till then. Sincerely Wayfarer68
