 Chaco Men’s Outcross Lace shoes

 

I am a bit late mainly because of events that I needed to deal with. I continues doing more of what I reported in my last report but also started hiking in Harold Parker State Forest in my Chaco Man’s Outcross Lace shoes.  As a result of having a gout attack I ended up trying something different which I will get into later in this report.  The walkway I mentioned in my last report is now in the finishing stages. Adding powered stone between the cement blocks seems like an endless task, the stone dust settles especially after a rain and could use a small amount added every day. I needed a shoe that was light, flexible, and comfortable.   To read more please click here.

Mountain Khakis Granite Creek convertible pants

The Mountain Khakis Granite Creek convertible pants were provided for review purposes.   I am finally getting to write about my last look at the Mountain Khakis Granite Creek convertible pants. I have continued to wear these pants almost daily. The weather has been hot and humid, making it very difficult to be comfortable. I have been hiking in the Harold Parker State Forrest a couple times a month. There are weekly hikes run by the Department of Conservation and Recreation (DRC). These hikes are on Wednesday mornings at 10 am and last for about 2 hours.   To read more please click here.
