I’m thrilled with current testing my new 4G IPod Touch, which now gives me the ability to take video and photos with the device. In the future, I can record HD video and still shots from the device and post them to the blog immediately.
Here’s a photo I just took of the page entitled For Running Shoes, It’s Fit First and Price Last in Today’s NY Times. It’s a must read for lightweight backpackers. This article sheds some light on why most folks wear shoes that are too small , and explains why buying two sizes larger could be necessary.
I looked like a clown in my over sized 14’s out there , but this clown never had to suffer through any blisters. Anyone on the PCT who wore light running/ trekking footwear had blisters. It seemed to be a given. I credit my size 14 OTB Boots for keeping me blister free.
[Disclosure: I was sponsored by OTB on my 2010 PCT thru hike.]
