When I took a look at Waldo's homepage he had a link to a document
entitled "Friends don't let friends wear boots". If I recall correctly
he was advocating the use of ultra-lite foot gear / sneakers.
I also think that he was carrying ovet 50 lbs.

If you want to carry weight on a distance hike you need more than
heart, you gotta have soul...<sp>  Sole, that is, under even those
young flexible feet.

If you have any doubts, let the rocks here in Pa. make a believer
outta you.
