The Long Wait Is Over???

When I went to Scheels on Monday, they said new snowshoes wouldn't be in for a while. Well, it turns out a while is 24 hours. Not complaining. I picked them up this afternoon. My new shoes are a tad bigger than my last ones, cost nearly twice as much (I paid nothing of course), and seem not to be built as sturdy as my last pair. I will be keeping the receipt just in case.

Of course, it may be a while before I go snowshoeing again as the highs for the next week or so are in the upper 30s to mid 40s and the snow is melting fast. Not only that but the forecast for next week includes ... rain. Rain in January. Very strange weather we're having here.


  1. Picture? I think you'll like the bigger shoes: more flotation.

  2. I'll take a picture when I use the new shoes. That might be a while.

    They shoes are only an inch longer. Not sure if I'll notice the difference.
