Have wondered about that too JimH -- why so little hiking discussion on here. Just assumed I wasn't looking in the right places but your post is great! After a 6 hour drive across the state on Sunday, in 90 degree temp, I pulled off to one of my fave short trails that follows a river upstream to some falls and just got right into the water. Heaven.
I agree; who cares about the weather, just go out. The best time is when the weather is funky I think. I'm looking to buy a pair of LaSportiva hiking boots, they are so damn comfortable! Love my Vasques but they don't make them anymore. Have had them for 20 years nearly. love love love them.
Can't speak to your flat foot problem as I'm high arch but what about those lovely, molded to your anatomical needs foot beds that they can do for you in the store? I think they heat them up to make them mold...
About pee'd myself looking at your pic Anthony--I handstand against any willing Cedar tree on my hikes but on a lookout edge...eeehehe!! Freaking me out.
