  1. Hi there! Recently (relatively speaking) I was walking in my hometown of San Marino Ca and i saw two men walking who were on the Camino Real and I stopped to chat. I have been on the Camino de Santiago 8 times now and I know a pilgrim when I see one 🙂 I wonder if you were one of the 2. Any recollection of it perhaps? Anyhow, the reason for reaching out originally here is because my husband and I and a couple of friends are planning to walk the St. Francis Way this September and I can’t find information re: backpack transfer services such as they have on the Camino de Santiago. My husband has a heart condition that precludes him from going with a pack. His cardiologist told him that doing the walk would be ok ONLY if he doesnt carry additional weight with him. One of the 2 friends has a mobility issue that would also be far too difficult with a pack.
    would you happen to know if we can find such a service ? I, for one, would not be able to carry enough on my back for two people. Thank you for your consideration and I hope that you are well and walking in peace and love. Ileana Mutch (please respond to ileanamutch11@gmail.com)

  2. I am doing the California Camino on an e assist recumbent trike. I am doing it in five segments of four day rides. First two segments have take me from Sonoma to Soledad. My wife is the sag wagon in the car and we meet up for lunch and at the missions.

    I am using Kamoot to find the bike friendly routes and would love to see your route. I am scoping out the next segment and wondering if you were on the shoulder of Highway 101 going into San Luis Obispo.

    • What a great trip you’re on! I live in Italy, so it must’ve been someone else on Hwy 101 near SLO. Let me know if you use GPX files and I’ll be happy to send you my route. Buen camino!
