New shoes!

…and socks!

We took advantage of the January sale at REI and got a new pair of shoozies for each of us and some lux socks to go with (observing with glee this leetle sign on the test fake-rock in the shoe department there).

Happy feet deserve a nice little day hike, so the next step is to check the maps for, well, the GA or NC mountains, probably. We had a grand trek on near the north shore of Lake Fontana last year, and would love to repeat, as that area, basically along the southern flank of Clingman’s Dome, was just delightful. Closer to home, there are some great spots north of Helen and Clayton.

    I bet I’ve told you this umpteen million times before but I once got motion sickness on that tourist-type structure at Clingman’s Dome. It was crazy. All kinds of “old folks” (I was maybe 28 then) were having no problem with it and I just about had to “cling” to the rail to get down. But it is a beautiful area though and I envy you the hiking opportunities and have fun!

    Meet us there sometime maybe?
