RE: boots/GTX

Well!  Looks like I made the right choice in doing without the GTX.... 
 That's certainly comforting, and I'll have to remember it for the next 

Hmmm, I guess since I've come out of the lurker closet I probably ought to 
introduce myself.  I'm 27 and I've been day hiking as long as I can 
remember, but I've been into backpacking only since late High School or so. 
 Did a bit of the AT in CT, but mostly I've been in the NJ area.  (being as 
that's where I live)  I'm hoping to do a thru hike by '99, circumstances 
permitting.  I'd like to do it before I reach 30 because as we all know it's 
all downhill from there....  ;->  (Wait!  Wait!  Let me get my 
flame-resistant undies on first!  Ok, now I'm ready.  Fire away!)

(Will it jinx my plans if I say:)
