New boots, new blisters

As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, I’m training to become an outdoor specialist with the Girl Scouts. My next class is Outdoor 2, which consists of my first overnight camp out. It’s Feb 20th. I’m very excited about it. I went to REI and bought some new boots.

Couple problems so far. I have wide feet, so they are a bit tight. And, it takes about fifteen miles to break in a pair of boots. I thought I’d try and break them in before the camping trip. Sunday I went for a 2+ mile jaunt through the greenbelt. It was great. Very peaceful. Now, of course, my legs hurt, and I have a brand new blister — little toe, right foot — about the size of a dime.

So, bandaids for now, but I wore the boots to work. Not a ton of walking, but more than having them sitting under my desk at home.

I’ll take them to RADCON this weekend.
