If I’ve done the right things you should see a photograph under this opening sentence.

If there’s no photograph you’ll need to use your imagination I’m afraid or, if you are feeling adventurous don your Cloak of Invisibility and have a sneaky-peek here

Latest x-rays were good as far as the doctor was concerned but the cough I’ve been plagued with is persisting. There’s no way I can do my Camino unless it clears up. I would either keep everyone awake or get lynched by the people I would be sharing dorms and/or rooms with.

Cheered myself up by having another practice pack.

Starting in the top left hand corner and working to the right of row one;
Stones to be taken to Cruz de Ferro,
Merrell trainers,
ziplock bag 1 – 2 pairs Coolmax liner socks, 4 pairs walking socks,
Ziplock bag 2 – 2 short sleeved t-shirts, 2 long sleeved t-shirts,
Small plastic bag – 3 pairs underwear,
1 pair zip-off trousers.

Row two;
Sleeping bag,
Sleeping bag liner,
Wash bag – Trek towel, all-purpose soap, toothbrush, toothpaste, 5 disposable one-use razors, universal sink plug, ear plugs,
Waterproof jacket,
Waterproof trousers,
First-aid box, compeed, support bandage, duct tape, gauze tape, microporous tape, plasters, sterile dressings, head torch, spare boot laces, emergency straps for pack, nail scissors,
Small white box – toilet tissue wipes, hand sanitiser, dog-poo bags,Waterproof pack liner.

Row three;
Pack,
Pack carrier for pack to go into flight hold- baggage with padlock,
iPad, phone, charger, MP3, pedometer
Waterproof shower bag for valuables, documents etc.

Some of the above stuff will be worn so not always in the pack. I haven’t included my boots,hat, glasses, sun glasses, sun screen and Vaseline.

Total weight 22 lbs without food and water.

Buen Camino.
