We're still walking, adjusting gear, and acquiring new gear. Buying new hiking gear is part of the fun of the Camino, of course, and we sometimes feel we're overdoing it. Nevertheless, walking the Camino over the years has changed our understanding of what constitutes comfortable and functional clothing, and more and more hiking clothes are becoming our new everyday garb. A sad event, a memorial service for a friend, had brought us to northern Virginia and Maryland, but the walk along the Rappahannock helped to soothe our spirits.
