Tom Jamrog, Triple Crown hiker (Appalachian Trail, Pacific Crest Trail, Continental Divide Trail), will give an illustrated talk at the Rockland Public Library, 80 Union St., Thursday, Nov/ 3, at 6 p.m. about his June 2016 hike of the coastal Portugal Camino, a lesser-known pilgrimage route. Tom’s 250-mile hike started in Porto, Portugal, and ended on the Atlantic Ocean in Finisterre, Spain.

He will discuss trip preparation, the contents of his 15-pound pack, and the differences between wilderness backpacking and the challenges he encountered in walking this particular route, which included a coastal alternative called the Spiritual Variant or the Maritime Way.

This event, sponsored by the Friends of the Rockland Library and the Rockland Public Library, is free and open to the public. For more information, call 594-0310.
