Weighed and found wanting?

Since I decided to attempt the whole of the Camino Frances this year, lessons learned on my Pamplona to Burgos stint of 2013 have made me keen to pare down my pack. There’s nothing like having your trip wants/needs strapped to your back whilst walking for hours on end, day after day, to focus the mind. Using the kitchen scales as my trusty aid I think I’ve got it down to 7lbs in my backpack and 3.5lbs in my bumbag (without water and snacks). 10lbs in blubber has also been lost from my torso, which will hopefully help my tootsies somewhat. An investment in Pacerpoles has led to me becoming a convert (not a zealot yet, but give me time).
