As I sit in a noisey and cold server room waiting for an SD Card array to rebuild, some of the lyrics from Nancy Sinatras’ “These boots are made for walking” popped into my head.
These boots are made for walking
And that’s just what they’ll do
One of these days these boots
Are gonna walk all over you
I received a very early birthday present from my folks on Monday (my birthday isn’t until October!) in the form of some walking boots! A pair of Meindl Bhutan MFS. Thanks Mum and Dad!
These are very highly reviewed by pretyy much everyone out there and, I have to agree with the reviews so far. They’re supportive, comfortable, very sturdy – something a “chap of my stature” needs – and not exactly featherweight (I need to build my leg strength up though right?!).
So far I’ve only worn them around the house but I think they’ll do me well on the climb in August. The real test, of course, will come when I start wearing them for “proper” walks!
Watch out Mt Kilimanjaro, I’m coming to walk all over you in my great big boots! (please be kind to me though!)
