Mud, Rain, and Crazy Truck Drivers….

Posted: February 28, 2011 in Uncategorized

Jenny has now finished Stage 3 – over 150 miles – and completed her day in the town of Tosantos (latest Google map). Her day was 12 hours and 45 minutes on the trail dealing with snow, sleet, mud, and crazy Spanish truck drivers. She fought through 8 miles of six inch mud along with the weather. The weather is such that she only encountered 4 fellow pilgrimers and most of the hostels are closed due to the weather. She encounted a Spanish truck driver, who upon hearing about her quest, yelled “Loco!” at her her before taking off (a comment that I have heard back hear as well).

Today was by far the hardest day for Jenny. I know the power of prayer and humbly request that you send your prayers her way. She is by far the strongest and toughest woman I have ever known, but she can always use our help. God is working through her and I plan on getting on my knees tonight with Logan and Jordan and saying a special prayer for her. She will be on the trail at 5 AM her time (11 PM our time) so please think of her through your evening and early morning.

  1. Just up ahead, in Viloria de Rioja is Acacio and Orietta, they just opened the albergue today… and just further up the road past Villafranca de Montes de Oca (which should be open but there is a big tough hill) past San Juan de Ortega on the way to Burgos she will come to the small town of Agés, the albergue on her left San Rafael -Ana Maria and her family are there is open year round…. the meseta is pretty tough and the weather can be pretty unpredictable…. If I can be of any assistance do let me know as I have been passing the information to the hospitaleros along the Camino. Will let Acacio, Orietta and Ana Maria to keep an eye for her.

    ¡Buen Camino Jenny we are all rooting for you and our prayers are with you!

    Yes, Jenny you are one tough “LOCO”!

    Keep moving forward and your sights on your objective. Prayers are with you my friend.
