My Other “Car” Is A Pair Of Boots

As I began the process of planning it was clear to me that the most important part of my equipment are the boots. The first time I tried on a pair of Merrell boots I was stoked….perfect fit! Last year Merrells were on sale, 1/2 price! I bought three pairs: one for training, one for the first 500 miles and one for the last 500 miles. I will send a pair to myself somewhere near St. Jean Pied-de-Port, France. Also in my boots are sock liners to reduce friction while walking, Smartwool mountaineer thick socks, and arch support.

  1. Those boots are meant for walking!!
    How many pair of boots are on your list to get you over the 1000 mile
    adventure through France & Spain? Looking forward to each village
    you go threw and many of your beautiful pictures you will take to share
    with every one.:)

  2. Thanks for following!
    I am now preparing several packages to mail to different locations in France and Spain. One package being mailed to St. Jean Pied-de-Port, France (the 1/2 way mark) will contain a broken in pair of boots.
    Most packages will contain EnduroxR4 for muscle recovery and Accelerade for endurance and rehydration. These products worked really well for me in 2009.
    We will start posting from the Camino some time after April 20th.
