In December of 2012 I decided to walk the Camino de Santiago, even though the thought of walking “The Way” had been in my mind for over 3 years.  Since 2010 I’ve worked at an outdoor retail store, which is where I first heard about the Camino.  One of the first customers I had was a couple who was going to walk from Sarria to Santiago for their honeymoon.  I’ve never backpacked for more than 2-3 nights at a time, but this seemed like the kind of backpacking trip I could do.  Shower at the end of the day, sleeping in a bed every night, hot meals, and a cold beer at the end of a long (or short) days hike, yeah, I could live with that.

    Thanks for the posts. I met you last week at the REI in Nashville. You gave me some great advice on gear. Leaving for my trip 3 weeks from today…March 23. Looking forward to staying in some of the highly rated overnights that you wrote about.
