Well, I’m on day two of illegally wearing my Targhee boots to the office. I’m sure the folks in HR would have a coronary to know I’m not strictly adhering to the corporate dress code. Oh well. I love living on the edge.
The boots feel a lot different than my North Face shoes. There’s a lot more support in the arch and I’m still trying to get used to that. They still feel pretty good though and I can’t believe how little I feel when I walk around. The footbed is textured. That’s taking a little getting used to. I feel it when I crinkly my toes. It’s not bad, just different.
It looks like I’ll be hiking later in the day this weekend. I want to hit the Hanna Park trails again but we have a welcome home party for a Navy friend coming back from deployment. I guess I’ll leave from the party and go to the park while the little one naps.
I did end up picking up a camera. We’ll have to see how it works out. I spent more than I wanted but it’s supposed to be shock and waterproof. I got the new Olympus 850 SW. As a photographer there’s very little control that you’re allowed. That’s a downside for me but a plus for the wife I guess. I only snapped a few pics last night and it was stuck on auto ISO and picked 800. Talk about grainy. I’ll post a review when I’ve had more time to play with it.
