Re: thorlo socks

I've used duct tape over blisters on my hands during a kayak clinic.  It 
works, but I wouldn't want to use it for any length of time.  Too easy to 
pull the loose skin off with the tape.  My preference is moleskin.  It 
provides a bit of cushioning that makes a world of difference!

i also use thorlos...the trekkers.  i use a light pair in the summer and a
heavy pair in the winter.  with a size 8 1/2 foot they fit fine.  make sure
you check the sizing on them, tho.  there are two sizes available that
encompass a rather large range of sizes.  as mentioned in a previous post,
the trekkers have cotton in them where the hikers don't.  personal 
i guess.  re blisters, has anyone ever used duct tape on their feet?  my mom
(psycho hiker/rock climber/adirondack 46er extraordinaire) swears by this...
