    I have wide feet also. I bought new boots last year and had a lot of trouble finding a pair that fit well. Finally bought a pair of Lowa Renegades that I’m very happy with.

    I will catch the train from Pawling where there are more convenient departures. As far as people caring, the Metro North is one thing, the Amtrak from NYC to Philly is another. I'd like to not stink.

    Thanks Durwood. Looks like the Nature Center is now offering only an outdoor, clothes on, rinse only shower. With that and clean clothes I should be mostly human. Thanks for the responses.

    I use my pack as the base for my pillow, so I empty it and release the tension straps every evening. I release them before storing at home as well.
