Ensuring dry feet

Boot protector

I've been pretty impressed by how well the Kiwi Boot Protector did at rewaterproofing my Wet bootsold boots. But two coats (the recommendation on the can) didn't seem quite enough after years of neglect.

So after a round of soggy digging, I scrubbed the boots off, set them in the sun for a few hours, and sprayed them again. My goal is dry feet even if I take it into my head to go on another eleven-mile hike in the rain. During that adventure, I brought along two spare pairs of socks and six plastic grocery bags and still came home with wet feet. Next time, my boots will stay dry!
