One Man. Two months. 500 miles on foot…
Because I needed a better way to record Tom’s journey, and since some of you wanted to leave comments (which would be great), I’ve moved Tom’s pilgrimage to his own webpage and blog!
Thanks to Nate for hosting it and saving us a few hundred bucks!
See you there!

21 September 2018: Day of Remembrance
20 September 2018
After two days of travel, Tom’s Camino experience begins with the first stamp on his pass in St. Jean Pied-de-Port, France. Day one on the Camino got him to Orisson and he was very happy.
Day one was fifty times harder than I anticipated!

This is Tom’s backpack. It’s wrapped in plastic so the straps don’t get caught on anything! With his bag checked, he’s ready to go through security and board his flight to Chicago, then onto London, and finally Madrid. Once in Madrid, he’ll board a bus to Pamplona, then a second bus to Jean Pied de Port, France where he will stamp his pass and begin the walking portion of his journey. There are two ways to begin the Camino from here — the Napolean route through the mountains, or the Valcarios route which is flatter. He hasn’t decided which way he’ll go yet and has reservations at his first hostile on both routes.
