If its September, John must be leaving soon for another camino in Spain. I will fly to Madrid, arriving on September 17 for my fifth Camino in six years. This time I plan to walk at least 400 miles and on a different route than previously. I plan to start farther south, in the city of Caceres in the province of Extremadura. I will walk the Via de la Plata north through Salamanca and to just beyond Zamora where I will continue on the Camino Sanabres through Ourense and on to Santiago de Compostela.
This 65 year old guy has been preparing by doing a lot of walking around Woodland on the levees of Cache Creek, Yolo Bypass, Ridge Cut Slough, and Sacramento River. Yesterday I just finished a typical and dusty nine mile walk through the Cache Creek settling basin and up Cache Creek back to our house in 90 degree plus heat.
I will try to post daily on my walk, but may miss a day here and there when I can not find internet access.

Finally, I would like to thank in advance the person who makes this all possible, my loving wife, Kathy. She continues to work full time at her job plus take care of my my business while I am gone, in order for me to be able pursue my passion for walking long distances day after day.
