Adventure and discovery was the enticement that drew Lee Elders to this wild lawless land; the supernatural world of the Shuara that live in a mystical realm of ayahuasca-induced visions where the ethereal world is encased within our third dimensional reality. Along the way he discovered his true self - his Kakarma. However incredible some of the incidents may seem this is a true story.

The largest age group to walk The Camino is between 60 and 70. One French man I met was about to turn 70 and I couldn't keep up with him!

I was inspired by the older folks who met their daily challenges with grace and kept going. There were many.

Have been reading a book about thru-hiking the Appalachian Trail (my own personal camino), and have discovered a website called Trail Journals where hikers on trails all over the world, including the Camino de Santiago, write about their journeys. Thought some of you here would like to explore the site; it's very inspiring:

Namaste,

Hi Joanne,

No, I've never thru-hiked the Appalachian Trail ("AT"). I've been on sections of it in the Smoky Mountains many times, but only for long day hikes or short camping. My obsession over hiking the entire trail, which takes 4-5 months for most, convinces me that I will one day do it. Before I'm 60, at least, so I've got 20 years to retire from my current job that does not allow for 4-5 months vacation and plan it. I've also read that hiking the entire AT with all of its elevation changes (which stretches from Georgia to Maine) is similar climbing Mt. Everest 10 times!

I don't know if I could do the entire AT with anyone but myself. I could perhaps do stretches of the trail with someone I know or someone I've met along the way, but I think hiking for 4-5 months with someone I know and love may not end well! What do you think?

Namaste,
steph
