  • Instructor: Steve Watkins

Why would anyone in their right mind choose to walk 500 miles across a far-away country over mountain ranges, dark forests and barren lands, through rains, searing sun, and a white-out blizzard with nothing but hemorrhaging tendons, blisters and daily aches and pains to show for it? Great question! Join Pilgrim Strong author Steve Watkins as he shares what it's REALLY like to go on the ancient pilgrimage of the Camino de Santiago. Watkins' presentation includes a virtual shakedown (what to take and what not to take); preparing the month before your pilgrimage departure; culture management in close quarters; injury prevention and care; and a discussion about what he calls The Empty Space (what to expect when you get home). There will be lots of time for Q&A and some short readings from his recently released Pilgrim Strong.
