Ag tells me that no one is interested in this minutia. She is right but we are making a record of our adventure. I hope that our frequent use of that word doesn’t make it an ADVENTURE! Decided not to spend the night of Wednesday, September 3rd in St. Jean Pied de Port because I can’t find a room. We will find a hostala in Pamplona and take an early taxi to St. Jean so we can get our pilgrim passport at the pilgrim office and get to Orisson by 5.
Still getting the gear ready. Treated packs, sleeping bags and sleeping bag liners with Permethrin. Might still treat some pants and shirts. Our packs are too heavy and we are making decisions. Better now than later.
Four miles with packs today. Sore and tired. We are pitiful but still eager.
