We are planning a pilgrimage on the Camino beginning in the middle of September, so right now we are gathering equipment and practicing long walks. Mark is still at home in Fernie where there are a lot of mountain trails to practice on. Tannins has been walking in the city and has gotten to about 22 Km’s at a time. Yesterday I walked about 24 kms but without a full pack….only about 10 kilos. We are learning a lot from people who have walked the Camino before. Has anyone heard of putting Vaseline on your feet to prevent blisters? Or how about using duct tape? If anyone has suggestions about how to prepare for this kind of hike I’ll be glad to hear it.
