Out With the Old – In With the New

So – these poor old much abused boots have just about had it. While I am happy to keep gluing them up and throwing them some polish once in a while, there is not much I can do about the tread.
AND – I am now booked in to do the Overland Track again mid April so I thought the smartest thing to do would be to treat my feet to new boots!

Doing the good wifey thing and spending Jeff’s paycheck.
I do get my money’s worth out of these though and they can hack a lot! I feel the walking will be a bit easier with more grip and a bit more sponginess – the inner sole was pretty cactus too in the old ones.

Well… thats my shoe shopping done for another 2-3 years!

Anyway – Mega excited about tackling the Overland again. Jeff is going on his own later in March while I look after Pip, the chooks and the garden.
Then Mid April its his turn to babysit while I trot off with Fiona for our jaunt! Fiona has never done it before so I am really looking forward to sharing it with her. Plus she goes at my pace!! (Not rushed… lots of rests on those uphills!!)
We booked now as on our starting date (14th) there were very few places left. They limit the amount of people starting each day.

If you didn’t catch the stories of last March’s Overland hike – there is a category for it you can take a peek if its of interest to you!

Thats all from me tonight!
Roll on Friday!



Cloudy night…
