Last time I mentioned Seattle Chic a friend offered to buy me new boots.
Oh, the shame of it!
While I didn't take him up on his offer I did visit REI. I figured, now's a great time to buy new boots because once the snow, muck, cold drizzles, really deep mud holes and low temperatures subside ... and the calendar indicates springtime, everyone will be shopping ... thus making it a challenge to find nice boots (that fit).
I am so ready for better weather ... new boots and trail maps plus backpack at the ready ...
ps: I chucked my old boots.
