    Just my $0.02 worth

    Except when you're allergic to adhesives. Taping is not an option... maybe wrapping with an Ace bandage... but that gets too bulky. A high or mid ankle boot tide tightly will give more support than...

    I am also using the Keen Targhee Mid II. I have a pair of the Keen Targhee shoe that would be great for flat, non-rocky surface. However, since I have absolutely no strength in my ankles, I need...

    Have you tried Fabric.com? I don't know if they ship to the great land up north, but they do have the Rip Stop Nylon. They are somehow affiliated with Amazon (they are listed at the very bottom of...

    Just my $0.02

    I can't find any women sized clothes for the outdoors that actually fit me. I ended up going with a pair of men's Columbia convertible pants. Although chaffing wasn't a problem when we first started...

    We've been by there, and yes, they were super-‹ber busy that day. I'm guessing it's only going to get more crowded as the summer goes on. We are going to do Marys Rock this week, so I don't think...

    We did the Jones Run/Doyles River circuit hike the other week and were able to check out the upper and lower falls.

    Swim Suits...yes or no?

    I'm hoping to not get any blisters to begin with, or any hot spots for that matter, but what would you all recommend for someone that's allergic to the adhesives in duct tape/moleskin? (I spent a...
  10. Just an update...

    I picked up a pair of the green SuperFeet inserts. I think the "berry" (women's) would have been ok, but I went with the green just to be safe. I'll use them this weekend on the Jones Run - Doyles...

    This is a new app, and I haven't gotten a chance to DL it yet to try it out, but it seems like a really cool idea. It's called "Leafsnap" and the basic idea is that the app uses visual recognition...

    Huh, gives me something to think about. My husband is planning to do a thru hike in the next few years, but it never occurred to me that it may cause stress on the relationship. He's going, I'm...
  14. Suggestions for a woman's mid hiking boots -

    Right now I'm using Keen Targhee II Hiking Shoes. The problem I've run into is that while the shoes are nice for doing walking trails (flat even ground), they just didn't seem to cut it when I did a...
