[ft-l] Danner Boots

I love my Danner Boots. I have a pair of Danner Gore Tex Boots that were
probably one of the first pair of Danner Gore Tex in Florida. They are
pretty beat up now as I use them while scouting and building trail. They
replaced a pair of Danner Leather boots that I had for about 10 years in the
70's .    I do however, have a newer pair of Danner Kevlar GoreTex boots
that I have had since about 1994.  They were great on a trek to the Base
Camp of Mt. Everest in 1995, and I use them regularly while hiking on the
Florida Trail and the
Appalachian Trail. As you see, I am a Danner fan.
