Wilderness First Aid, Nov. 5-6, 2016

Drying out your boots this week?  This could be a good time to recondition them for the upcoming wet winter(fingers crossed!).

Clean them with a formulation specific to the materials in the upper - synthetics are treated differently than leather or Nubuck.  They may need reviving with a couple of layers of a good waterproofing(Nikwax, Tectron, Granger's), and of course, after each treatment they need to dry thoroughly.  Direct sunlight and artificial heat sources are damaging, and all that air-drying takes time, so you may be ill-equipped for adventure this coming weekend.

Hmmm....maybe this is the weekend you can squeeze in the Wilderness First Aid training you've been thinking about all year but just got tooooooo busy to fit in; and just like your boots, you'll be secure, safe, and ready for the wonderful winter ahead.
