Operation Shinbone is still going well. Made 16 miles today. Pain is manageable and not increasing.
Today started out with a couple hours of rain. Poncho worked well. I actually enjoyed walking in the rain.
When I arrived at last night’s gite I was disappointed. I got 4-5 mosquito bites in my room, and I was so far from town I was stuck there. But everything turned around at dinner. Hans, the owner, cooked a great meal, and several of the other guests spoke English. Dinner lasted over 2 hours but flew by. The mosquitoes also disappeared. Fed them enough of my blood, I guess. Great pilgrim experience!

Wow – it’s great that you’re able to get back on the trail!
Keep on truckin’!!! Looking good Bill.
Hi Bill, I’ve been lurking since the start of this very wonderful and human adventure. Thanks for telling us about your experience and I love the pictures. I’m with Eric. Glad you can keep going! And it’s good that you can play it day by day. Cheers!

Good to hear from you! You should design a team building exercise on the Camino.
Ha! I love that idea for Catherine:)
Glad you’re back on the Camino Bill. I find myself looking forward to your daily posts. Do you have alternative footwear, other than the hiking boots?
I have trail runners for hiking and Crocs for the evening. I think the Crocs aggravated the injury on my rest day. Walked too much in them. My trail runners have custom orthotics for arch support.
So happy you are on the trail and on the mend. Looking forward to continuing to follow your progress.
I like a nice stroll in the rain. Glad to hear things are going well.
