Dear FaN and FaNatics:

I have been training for the 490 mile Camino de Santiago. Start on August 2 in St Jean Pied du Port France. Thought about starting a new thread about THE WAY of silver trailers and the Camino...but the Breakfast Club followers are such an eclectic and educated group I thought perhaps I could post here?
What say you, FaN? This is your baby!

We walked the Camino de Santiago last spring, at least the first 200 km and the last 300 km. The central 300 kms was missed due to MIA time to allow feet to heal. We plan to return in the fall of 2015 to walk the section that we missed.

Buen camino!!!

Wow FaN,

Thanks for a great wake-up! Starr's "25 Miles" is one of my all-time faves!

More Spark for Your Saturday

John, there are many songs that walk-the-walk, so to speak.

Another favourite.....

Oh wow thanks for this great feedback and support!!! So loving those walking songs which I will load on my Nano. Now gotta learn how to post some pics on the forum...

Thanks, too, JDS and TinTin. Sounds like you missed the best part to miss...the Meseta.

So the recommendation is to carry 10% of your body weight boy that does not allow for much. Goodbye make-up, jewelry, Nook reader, cute clothes and shoes.
Plus having to deal with the idea that Spain does not really get vegetarians!

You can always send your pack ahead and walk with only a small daypack, many do this and there is no shame in it. You shouldn't have too much trouble finding vegetarian meals, we practically lived on tortilla, tostado and cafe con leche, and Galician soup. The oranges in Spain are the best in the world.

More thanks, TinTin!
What is Galician soup?Seafood perhaps? I am ok eating lower on the food chain plus living in Louisiana our seafood is fantastic!

So if anyone interested these are the books I have read thus far:
I'm Off Then: Losing and Finding Myself on the Camino de Santiago by Hape Kerkeling
Walk in a Relaxed Manner by Joyce Rupp
The Pilgrimage by Paulo Coelho

And yes I watched the movie The Way with Martin Sheen and his son Emilio Estevez.

To laugh is to risk appearing a fool
To weep is to risk being called sentimental
To reach out to another is to risk involvement
To expose feelings is to risk exposing your true self.
To place your ideas and dreams before a crowd is to risk their loss
To love is to risk not being loved in return
To live is to risk dying
To try is to risk failure.

But risks must be taken
Because the greatest hazard is to risk nothing.
The people who risk nothing may avoid suffering and sorrow,
But they cannot learn, feel, change, grow or really live.
Chained by their servitude they are slaves who have forfeited all freedom.
Only a person who risks is truly free.

William Ward quoted in the John Brierley Camino guidebook

Welcome to the Breakfast Show.......

Galician soup was primarily potato, white beans, Spanish greens (Spanish cabbage or turnip tops??), possibly a ham stock or vegetable stock. Very common in the western half of the Camino. Tastes far better than it sounds!.

Seafood is readily available, particularly again as you get closer to the Atlantic side. Try the pulpo!!!

What is the Camino walk?

If you think it is tough being a vegetarian there, try western Colorado. I look for Mexican, Italian or Chinese food if we can find a good restaurant, not easy either here. You need someone following with an Airstream with kitchen and fridge. Our trailer makes eating on the road so much easier.

I am thinking that the combination of this great breakfast club soundtrack plus the wines of the Rioja region of Spain just might be a winner!

So Gene, in answer to your question, the Camino is a pilgrimage to Santiago ( Saint Iago or St. James). He is the patron saint of Spain.There are many routes there, hence the symbol is a scallop shell where many roads lead to the same spot. The classic route is the Camino Frances which starts in St. Jean France. ( Have you ever heard of the dish Coquilles St. Jaques? It refers to the scallops of St James). Lots of people: young and old, of many beliefs or none, travel this on foot.

Okay so what the heck does this have to do with A$ trailers? For me they are both BIG DREAMS...more to follow...
