The Journey Begins

Hello all. Sorry for the lack of posts, but many circumstances have conspired to make blogging difficult, if not impossible. I have completed 7 stages thus far, which puts me right on track. Despite the airline strike and drama involved with getting to SJPD, the trip thus far has been uneventful. The weather has been stellar but I understand that I’m headed for rain tomorrow. The scenery is stunning and I have met some interesting pilgrims. I am able to carry my 21 lb. pack (yeah, I know) without too much difficulty. Have had the pack sent ahead 2 days and am glad I did.
