Counting Down to Camino 2009

Two weeks from tomorrow it begins. A friend will dog and house sit. We will be ready!

We have hiked a bit more than 11 miles, with our backpacks, three times in the past week. We are getting stronger each time.

Our planning for likely places to stop each day is progressing. We are posting the maps showing where we think we’ll stay during Week 2 and Week 3.

A few days ago we did a presentation for the Prime Time program at Santa Fe College here in town about the Camino, our experiences last year, and our plans for this year. We talked about Why we did it, Who went with us (just us), How we prepared, Where we stayed, What kinds of people we met along the way, What were the biggest challenges, What we most enjoyed, and Whether the Camino is for everyone.

Part of the fun was doing a show-and-tell of what went into our packs, and having the packs with us for folks to try on. The photos show some Prime Time members trying them.
