[pct-l] Toenails, PCT Preparation

Hey Frenchie,

I wouldn't recommend it, but NimbleWill Nomad had all of his toenails
removed prior to his 4,000 mile trek.  I think many of us have lost a few
toenails here and there.  It might help to keep your toenails clipped so
that they do not rub against your shoe toebox.  Of course, on the steep
downhills that may be difficult to avoid.  Good luck!!
