There is a 499 day window when booking. I bet you are too far out?

I do not know for sure. I guess I have a year to see how the new prinicipal. If we went, we would probably go the 15th or 16th to about the 23rd or 24th depending on airfare. The problem is I would have to take off work that Monday and Tuesday of Thanksgiving Week. These are blocked days that you can not use personal days for (because they are attached to a holiday and everyone would try to get off). That means I would have to have a cool pricipal that would allow me to use sick days, otherwise I get docked If I could talk DH into, maybe I could do a girls only trip IF I can get off work? Then I would miss Thanksgiving with my DH, DS, and family?? Hmmmmm....

DD1 also turns 13 next July and we were talking about a cruise again because the kids really want to go on another cruise (and their passports expire the following year) so we are still deciding all of this.

What dates are most thinking of going? If money wasn't involved, it would be a no-brainer!! Decisions! Decisions!

Sorry no. I would love to because I'll be turning 40 in Nov 2013 but we are doing Spain over the summer for 2 months so I don't think we can save up enough.

most people do it in 35 days but that's over 14 miles a day. I don't think the kids will last that long every day so we are aiming for maybe 7 a day.

You can start anywhere along the trail but there is one specific town that you have to start at to be able to be entered in the registers at the end. You get a passport that is stamped in each town to track your progress.

If you ever get the chance, watch the movie "The Way" with Martin Sheen and Emilio Estevez, the movie is about the walk. Very moving story.

Have tissues handy if you watch. It's about the journey but it's also about a father and son. You couldn't have asked for 2 better actors to do it. Emilio actually directed, co wrote and starred in the movie.

I think it would be good for the kids. They are the ones that want to do it the most. To disconnect from the world but meet people from all over the world at the same time. AWESOME!
I'll go through DIS withdrawal though!! LOL I'd probably post once a week just so everyone knows we are alive.
