Do people ever NOT have hiking boats? And if so, what kind of barbarians are we talking about?
but i do have a fairly good collection of water proofed and 'outdoor' clothing.
Never found it an issue to walk from one place or another though, regardles sof terrain. Sometimes I go barefoot and pretend I'm walking to mordor
There aint much for me at the tops of mountains
please this^ this if you do
i was supposed to be playing at a ProAm in the summer but i don't have any shoes in London and I went to Golfing World (or whatever) to buy some. A HUNDRED NOTES, for a pair of lesbo shoes. fuck that. I just pulled out of the golf day instead.
fuck, that's class. let's hit the driving range when we hang out. ACTUALLY, this is a brilliant idea.
smashing balls about. get Meo, Moneypinni and other assorted clumsy swines to have a bash.
i'd prefer this to going clubbing, if I'm gonna be honest
We tend to hang about old men's pubs, do house parties and occasionally thed odd clubnight. We should go blowling and do karaoke!
but pub and cool chat is where it's at. see you there
they have holes in them
with a walking pole (stick? what is this called?) and a bumbag with a water bottle on it. chill out edmund hillary.
at university one of my classes was based on trying to get us to be better at performing music in groups (ensembles, if you will) and so they made us do silly bits of 'music' that made us try not to laugh etc. one was called 'rough walking shoes' and was an advert for shoes that you just read out loudly about 6 thousands times and all at different speeds (imaging a group of 15 people making various beeping noises and shouting words like 'hiking' will nilly). the greek guy in my class had a very special way of pronouncing 'veri schtrong chuss. orr bettrrr still boowts'.
I remember going walking (I can't use the word hiking) in the lake district, everyone wore proper boats. I had wellies on. They laughed. THEN WE HAD TO CROSS A LAKE/RIVER/STREAM. Needles to say...
with the eyes?
you just take your shoes and socks off, cross and then put them back on. Done this in the north of Scotland in December and it's fine.
The Botches: Hey lu, will we need wellies or walking boots or anything for our trip to Scotland?
PO: (ignoring the fact scotland has had the mildest winter on record) no, don't be ridiculous, it's January, the ground will be frozen, Trainers will be fine. And anyway, it's only a ten minute walk.
Oh how we laughed as we waded through the bog, knee deep in mud. RIP Lauren's converse and my mum's Ugg boats </3
I need some as I want to start that walking/ramble lark (no stick under any circumstances) but just can't find a pair in hot pink.
And they were second hand when I bought them. Saw me through some good Uni winters.
Bought a brand new pair walking shoes for it - didn't even break them in, only took them out of the box when I got the campsite. Haven't worn them since.
That's how real men do it.
