I once walked 80 miles through the mojave desert with nothing on my feet but mullein leaves tied on with parachute cord. A mexican stole my boots whilst I was sleeping...

That's sad but funny. My Daughter wanted new shoes to start school and I kidded her about making her some out of cardboard and duct tape. I told her she would start a new trend and all her friends would want a pair. I said we could use colored tape and make them rainbow or camo for the guy's. She thought I was crazy. I told her they would last for several days but could be repaired easily. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif" alt="" />

You couldn't bailout for 80 miles or you just did the hike anyway?

Now THAT is hardcore, call Ryan Jordan, he'd be glad to let you tag along, I'm almost positive! Well, the person figured you were sleeping and not using them at the time. Weird thing would've been if you found them once you got to the end <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif" alt="" /> Did you follow your own boot tracks out or what? PUt this in OFF Topic
