    Great time. Lots of new barefooters to spend time with. Certainly one of my favorite hikes. For me there is nothing better than hanging around with barefoot women. I think we may need to re-categorize this particular hike from beginner to intermediate but every one was terrific. Thanks

    For the new people, if you feet got a little too much exercise today, give the a rest the next couple of days, put them up, barefoot inside, but sandles outside. Just as if you worked out too hard in the gym, your mussels will feel soar for a few days.

    So... how does everyone feet feel?? That was one heck of a walk, eh! It was so wonderful meeting people- great conversation, great scenery, and a nice swim to top it off.

    2 points of interest

    Wilgus State Park, Weathersfield VT. near Ascutney on route 5. Great camping and river fun available with a small but wonderful trail system. Tons of slippery pine needles to walk on but if you go be careful on the descent, extremely slippery. Best to reach the summit and turn back. www.vtstateparks.com

    My new favorite footwear when footwear is needed.

    Hi All. It's been a busy summer for me with my new grandson and of course the "old" 2 1/2 year old one. lol.
    I just returned from a road trip to Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine (lovin' Bangor). I logged 1300 auto and 50 barefoot miles in 5 days. I've been doing something I call barefoot speed hiking and found some awesome trails to play on. I had no itinerary and just went wherever the whim took me. The only footwear I brought were my Xeroshoes and wore them about 10% of the time.
    I hope to join you this Saturday though I am on call so if it's quiet in the morning I'll just bring my service vee-hickle.
    Hope to see you
