What costs & needs do registration & its fee cover and provide for pilgrims? – Pilgrimage 2020

The registration fee covers a lot for each pilgrim, though not every expense he can expect to incur.

Q: What do registration and the registration fee cover/provide?

A: Plenty. For example:

– instructions, preparation, guidance to step-off, and every step along The Way

– pilgrims’ prayer & songs booklet

– brigade organization to lead in prayer & guide a pilgrim on the road and in camp

– modest first-aid for foot-sore pilgrims on the road and in camp

– all the bottled water a pilgrim needs to drink over the course of three days

– the camping fee for two nights at two private campsites – Friday and Saturday

NOTE WELL: Fee does not cover accommodations for the first night’s (Thursday) motel nearby, or the campground at, the step-off location. Pilgrims must book those in advance, and pay for them. Contact info for campground and local motel to appear on blog as plans of re-location are finalized.

– bread, soup, and hot water to supplement two suppers (Fri-Sat) in camp

– bread & jam, apples, and hot water to supplement three breakfasts (Fri-Sun) in camp

– hauling of all baggage & gear from camp to camp each day

– vans to give rest to weary walkers all three days
