Several people have asked how Jim is doing on his 500 mile walk across northern Spain. He is doing great. He has completed 24 of the 33 stages of the walk as set out by John Brieriey's Pilgrim Guide to the Camino de Santiago--- The Way of Saint James. He says " every day brings something special". Some days the walk is more strenuous with hills and other days the walk is relatively flat. " Rick Steves and the movie The Way make it look easier than it is". He stays in Abergues with the masses or in hotels when they are available. I'm pretty sure he will finish and be home by October 15th.
Carrie continues to hear from Jim daily. This am text said he walked 28.2 miles today and is staying in Moliaseca. Less than 150 miles left. He plans to make it home October 15. Thanks for prayers and good wishes from all his NHLBC friends.
