Four days to departure - checking our gear list making sure everything is in order. Sprayed the travel sacks (sleeping bags) and back pack with Permethrin today to protect us from bugs - especially bed bugs in the albergues. Made a few last minute purchases - getting ready to pack our back packs - double checking reservations - getting excited. To really get us mentally prepared for our lengthy stay in Spain on the Camino we are relaxing and watching The Way - for the seventh time :) watching the movie that started us on this road back in October 2012. Once more going back to that fateful day and our first viewing - looking to an awesome future in Spain.

When we pack our back packs we will take some photos of our gear and include a final list and the weight. For the casual observer - it will mean nothing - for other peregrinos - everything. For the past eleven months we have become a part of the Camino community - the Facebook groups - the Camino Forum - sharing information - asking questions - getting advice. Now to take all this preparation and apply it - no longer a theoretical discussion - now it gets very real!
