Which gives you great freedom in trying new boots and the like.

They also sell head lamps, emergency blankets, water purifiiers, and all sorts of othe stuff silly people who care pester you about.
Without all the imput I've gotten from here, I'd be less brave....

Yes, and good hiking boots is a must. i wear them all the time when I go walking.
I am wary of heights myself.......
Far from hero. Just stubborn......and just enough sense to know when to back off....

You be careful lady!
I'm sorry for your loss, Wodin. It can happen so easily even for experienced hikers. Yes, I'll be careful. Thank you..
