new boots!

Meant to post this before going to Yorkshire, but forgot. Here it is anyway: a solemn moment - the passing of my faithful old Berghaus boots, purchased from Blacks in Bristol about 15 years ago and with many many miles on the clock. I think the double whammy of the Three Peaks Challenge last July and then the ill-fated Dartmoor trip in January finished them off. So I had to get myself a new pair - I chose a pair of fully Gore-Tex lined Salomon boots from the Kathmandu shop at the top of Park Street. And I got a free pair of socks! I wore them (boots and socks) for a couple of walks up in Yorkshire, and they're very comfortable. Just in case you can't work it out: old ones on the left, new ones on the right.
