My Spring 2012 Camino de Santiago list - Buen camino!

A Listmania! list by Amazon Customer "book guy" (Virginia, USA)
The list author says: "Completed the St Jean Pied-du-Port to Santiago route in 40 days during Spring 2012. Why hurry if you're only going to do this once!
Since it was so wet, cold and windy most of the trip, I took two (2) complete sets of everything I wore, so I could keep dressed in chilly hostels, while one set dried overnight. A few days were so extreme that I had to wear almost everything at once, including rainsuit and poncho! Likewise, those nights ( but without rain gear :) Summer pilgrims will differ."

I used baby carabiners to connect and weight down the corners against the wind.  Yes, the width is not great, but it was generally so cold on my pilgrimage that I was wearing the Marmot jacket underneath.  If it wasn't cold enough for that, I wore a T-shirt and didn't worry if my arms got wet."
