Hello
I will start the El Norte at the end of september, I got a lot of informations in this forum abd I have the Wise P app. and I am wondering if a paper guide is necessary and if yes, would the Wise Pilgrim paper be a good choice.

I do not think you need a paper guide

I used the Wise Pilgrim both paper and digital. It is a great tool.

I would carry both app and paper. Devices can and will fail. One trip, my phone was dead for three days. When the battery was finally down to zero, then a recharge brought it back to life. Another trip I was using the Whitson Northern Caminos guidebook, and lost the book. Luckily, had the Kindle version on my phone.

I used Dave Whitsen's book along with wise pilgrim, and other digital sources but found the website gronze.com to be my go to.

thanks I am for sure really interested in the coastal alternatives and my paper copy of the W Pilgrim is on it‘s way now, just hoping that the sky will be fairly clear of the 19.
