Re: [AT-L] Thoughts on blisters

I've found duct tape on hot spots works great to eliminate friction,
however on a recent trip a friend told me that he had just heard that the
tape is toxic and the "toxins" can enter the body through the skin!  Has
anybody else heard this/think it is a real concern?  My friend's
suggestion was to switch to atheltic tape, but it doesn't seem as sticky
so I wonder if it will do the same great job...

Bob mentioned 100mph tape... what is that?
