Right I've fought my way through the mountain of things airing/drying in the garage so I could shuffle them about abit and get some more airing off as its done nothing but rain on and off here since we got home :(

SOMEONE has misplaced an allied cape, I have it in my garage it has the initials PAB inside it (hoping that will mean something to someone) Its currently drying off but if you let me know if its you'res and where your located I'll see what I can do about getting it back to you

and I've written that in nice big letters so noone can moan they didn't see the post ;) :lol:

They dont let your feet breath though, not a good long term plan.

Not very in keeping witt period but i wear knee lenght goretex socks over commando socks,

bone dry, breathable, cushioned and because you have two layers to absorb the friction, zero blisters.

I learn t foot care the hardway after being speed marched over tank tracks (basically roads of limestone chippings and shale) at catterick.

I did that on the saturday gadge, unfortunately they were sodden by the end of play and I wanted dry socks on and dry feet ;) so I could move across the site without squelching (I don't like plinkley toes, part of antifootfetishism)

Dont get me worng goo short term solution but can wreck your feet if you do it for few days as yu oend up with soaking swaety feet and theskin coming off.

I proabbly woudl have done the same though if my boots were sodden.
