Boots on the Ground v1

RIMG0503

The trusty first pair of boots, atop Mount Greylock. I got about 2300 miles on these, divided between 1700 on the AT and around 500 or so during the winter on the NCT.

Boots in the Air POV

The ill-fated second pair of boots, from atop a ski lift I climbed to watch the sun set over lake Champlain. These ones I wore long past broken and still only got about 1300 miles out of them…

Macomb Boots

Another of Boots Mk. II, this one is atop Macomb Mountain, Just a couple days into the NCT, and after quite a fight to schwak up Macomb the wrong way. Ill-advised perhaps, what it cut in distance it probably stole away in time. The whole side I went up was covered in dense pine thicket.

To add some recent flavor, here’s one of my feet and 4th pair of boots at the end of the NCT. My feet’ve performed admirably, and have seldom gotten much worse than this minor amount of damage shows. These boots have done similarly well, but they’re on the way out. (can’t replace your feet, yet…) With about 2300 miles on them in this picture, they won’t live to see the PNT.
