Retiring the Old Boots

21 Nov

Day 144, Mile 1838

After 1400 miles it was time to get a new pair of boots. I had to give the old ones a proper burial though:

    Glad you’re in the Smokies. You’ll have to keep moving to stay warm. Hope you can find warm places to spend the nights. Personally, I HATE cold weather camping unless it’s in my RV.

    looks like 278miles more or less. At 20/day = 14 days plus zero days. You still have Clingman’s Dome to top at more than 6600ft. Have Fun and Keep on keeping up.

    Happy Thanksgiving even thought you’re a long ways from Big D. I agree with Claire about the boots. Except you shoulda hadem bronzed for posterity.

    You should have saved all of your boots from the trail and auctioned them off as “boots that Three Stove Tex wore during his 6 month sabbactical on the AT.”

    I hope that your new boots will hold up as well. Hard to believe that you’ve made it this far. Keep it up! Three weeks to finish.

    i think the trail food has made you delirious.

    I didn’t recognize you at first because you’re so hairy now! I thought “Why is Robert getting someone else to bury his boots?” But then you talked and I knew.
