My Camino Route in 2016

My Camino Route in 2016
This year, I will be walking Camino Madrid from El Escorial through Segovia and Valladolid to Sahagun. I will have a few more days of walking and am currently thinking I might then walk from Astorga to Zamora on the portion of the Via de la Plata that I did not walk in 2014. In all it w=should be about 18 days and somewhere between 250 and 300 miles of walking.

Getting ready for this year's camino

I have been walking all year long, generally 5-7 mile walks near home along Cache Creek, Sacramento River, Yolo Bypass, and Ridge Cut Slough. Lately I am ramping it up a bit to do two ten mile walks and several shorter ones per week. I find that I am pretty consistently doing 16 1/2-17 minute miles, thus a ten mile walk takes right around 3 hours or a little less.

I will fly to Madrid on August 23, meeting up with Greg at the airport, then on by bus to San Sebastian to start our walk. I need to finalize my packing list and make sure I have all the items I plan on taking.


  1. Hey John
    I will fly to Pamplona on August 25, and start my
    working alone to Santiago.

    I will follow you on The Blog.
    I will fly home on September 29.
