Socks Situation

It appears that teko Merino socks I intended to use are out. They comfy and great. But after less than a month of active use one sock out of two pairs already has a big hole in it. You would think that 13EUR socks would be more durable.

I’m currently testing asics Running Light-Weight socks. Let’s see how those will hold out.

Accessories: Sleeping Bag / Liner

Another piece of equipment I unintentionally left out from my “lists” – lifeventure EX3 Silk Sleeper sleeping bag / liner.


It’s small (packs into the package the size of a fist) weights only 120g and it’s already treated with all the possible bug and insect repellants which I hear are quite an issue in some albergues.

Off topic: El Camino Forum

I’d like to thank commenter Leslie for making me aware of the excellent English-written forum dedicated to El Camino de Santiago. If you need the first-hand experience and knowledge from El Camino walkers, this is the place.

Thanks Leslie!

Gadgets: Open Letter to Nike

Hey, Nike.

Thanks for releasing a perfect product for my run – Nike+ SportWatch GPS powered by TomTom! Sadly it is marked as out of stock from day one. Trouble is – I need it by the beginning of May. I’d buy it, but I can’t. Help me here. Send me one. I promise to draw a Swoosh on my neck with a permanent marker if you do :)


P.S. anyone know someone at Nike? Be a doll and forward this to them :)
