American Pilgrim Ryck Thompson is a retired U.S. Navy Submariner Senior Chief, serving 21 years onboard three different Submarines.
He decided that when he retired from the military he needed to walk the Camino, solo to clear his mind and transition into civilian life. He walked the Camino Frances in 2017.
Ryck also needed to know that people were generally good and they are.
Ryck currently live with his wife Frances and three children in Poulsbo, Washington State, USA.
He believes that the Camino is the gift that keeps giving. Even when it is over and you are back home, mentally it never ends.
Ryck currently works for the US Government on various projects. He spends his time off work with friends and family onboard his boat in the local marina and in and around the Puget Sound waters and Olympic mountain ranges.
