Three cheers for Gretel's* new boots!!

Ok, we don't really need to go through the whole thing.  But we can be very excited that Gretel can now hike in comfort!  Apparently her boots were a size too small and she ended up getting some hearty blisters on her toes and heals.  Fortunately, the last time Hansel and Gretel were in civilization, they stopped at an outdoor outfitters that happened to carry Gretel's boots.  She mailed back the old small ones which our parents will hopefully be able to exchange for another of the same pair only in the correct size.  It is important to have a pair of back-up boots ready and waiting incase the current pair need to be replaced.  Yay boots!

Happy trails!

*Hansel and Gretel= Jarrod and Becca's trail names.
