I have put another 80 miles on the Salewa Mountain Trainer boots since my last update hiking in the mountains of Virginia and the swamps of Louisiana. These boots have easily handled all the terrain I encountered while protecting my feet. Click HERE for my final thoughts.

I have contained to wear the Bogs Copperhead boots quite a bit over the past month and a half, mostly while dayhiking and on one kayaking trip. I still have not ran across any snakes. I also wore them several more times while working on clearing some brush in an overgrown wooded area. The only real problem I have experienced is that it has been unseasonably warm during this time. February is normally our coldest month, but since my last update in mid February it has not even gotten below freezing, and many days have seen a high in the upper 70s to low 80s F.
