My passtimes ... b) tramping (No, not loose women. Hiking!)

Posted 01-20-2011 at 10:47 PM by Tinkster

Love the great outdoors, and would spend more time in the bush
or the mountain tops if time-restrictions weren't an issue.

Pretty much spend all of my vacations and the odd weekend
walking with a heavy backpack, and am planning on doing so

gloves for my feet!!

Posted 01-19-2011 at 06:28 PM by Tinkster

For a week now I've owned a pair of VIBRAM FiveFingers KSO.

After a slow 3 days wearing them around house and garden for short
periods of time I took them for a walk to and from work (including
