Product Description

Product Description

St. James' Way in a Tuxedo? Really? Really. A Danish pilgrim has arrived wearing his finest get-up because he thinks that Spanish restaurants won’t let him in otherwise. Other pilgrims bring their hammocks, huge dictionaries, solar-powered chargers, bags full of supplies, batteries...

For more than a thousand years, pilgrims have followed St. James' Way – you would expect that by now, word about a good packing list would have spread already. On the contrary: many pilgrims arrive with enormous backpacks, weighing 20-30 kilograms, and damage their feet, knees and shoulders before spending lots of money on sending huge packages back home.
In short episodes, the author describes the confusion of getting equipment, eventually making his pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela carrying only 3 kilograms in his backpack.

This equipment guide is a must-have for pilgrims of every age, who want to arrive healthy and safely in Santiago de Compostela!

HASH(0x9f4fa30c) out of 5 stars This book is a great account of acquiring gear March 2 2016

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book is a great account of acquiring gear, trying out gear, returning gear, weighing gear and packing. It's details the journey using the gear. But beyond the gear, it's an easy read and a very entertaining and useful. Anyone planning a this pilgrimage should read this. You will find something in it useful and you will never be bored reading it.

HASH(0x9f503054) out of 5 stars An excellent and innovative way to do the Camino! Nov. 6 2014
By G B ASSAF - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This is a very well- written ,researched,and innovative book. Most pilgrims on the Camino carry much too much and suffer the consequences . Phillip Winterberg has carefully researched after much trail and error and ,not to mention expense , a practical to do the Camino with minimal weight. You may not want to go the whole hog with some his suggestions for a minimalistic approach- for example, although taking things which are multi-functional maybe excellent advice, I don't know that many people would want to tie an aluminum seat- mat with a windshirt on their heads as protection against the sun. Wouldn't a simple cap or Tilly hat serve the purpose better and be less of an eye-sore? One could also question his approach to socks. But , all in all ,this is a wonderful little book full of wit and sensible advice. I wish I had used it when I recently did the Camino. I would certainly have saved myself the back problems I have now as a result of carrying too heavy a load from St Jean to St Santiago de Compostella. I would recommend the book highly to any would be or returning pilgrim.
