Sounds good.  My problem is that most closed toe shoes are extremely
uncomfortable for me (they are too tight in the toe area).  I've gone
through more footwear than even I can imagine! :-(  Anyway, the fleece
sock/teva combo is reasonably comfortable, has a little bit of arch support
(which my feet like), is warm, is weather resistant, and lets my feet air.

is? Just curious.

Surveyors tape is the bright orange stuff you sometimes see tied around
trees.  I carry a little bit in case I have to mark something.
