I will be driving from the Daytona Beach area and will have room for three more people if anyone wants to car pool with me.
If you have heard of this hike in Spain and have been considering this, you should attend to learn some of the tricks of this 600 mile hike from Southern France and across northern Spain. I plan to do this hike May/June 2014. If you have any questions please post here or send me an email thru Meetup. Ciao.

    Just started watching "The Way" with Martin Sheen. Divine Intervention? Don't know but looks like an amazing hike. Wish I could make it to Jax for the presentation.
