'I WON'T BE ALONE': Crestview man's spiritual quest leads to Spanish pilgrimage, scholarship fundraiser

“My Camino had officially started,” Driver said on his blog.

Like the other Caminos de Santiago, Driver’s hike will end at the cathedral in Santiago de Compostela.

There, because he will have walked more than 100 kilometers, Driver will receive his “compostela,” a certificate testifying to his accomplishment.

“I know that I won’t be alone,” Driver blogged. “Joel’s been with me the whole time.”


Driver will hike through the province of Galicia, where villagers speak a regional dialect. He plans to complete the Camino in five days.

“What’s really pretty about the (Camino) Inglés is it’s not as well traveled,” Driver said. “The towns are farther apart. You have to work to walk certain distances to get to villages or else you sleep outdoors.”
