[Cdt-l] Wet foot hiking

Dawn , I had the same  concerns  about  wet feet. I just finished a section hike that included over 30 miles of hiking  in the middle fork. I started the river section with  horrible blisters and actually lost a toenail. I was quite concerned about what would happen once I hit the water. I was actually  surprised to see that with just a little use of duct tape my feet actually improved in the water. I did not have neoprene socks and after this. I probably would not bother with them. Hope that information helps. Good luck.

I was wondering what, if anything, people do differently for when you will be walking in water all day. ?My main concern is blisters since they seem to be more likely when I hike with wet feet all day. ?Has anyone tried some neoprene socks (such as the Camaro Titanium 0.5mm Seamless Waterproof Socks)? ??Dawn (M&M)
