Oops! A novel way to try to shake the cr@p out of your ears I guess!
Think I am going deaf too….or was it just windy?
Was that a brace of MSR hubby type things being tested?…
…with additional LOW-VIZ guy lines provided by the tester :-)
Kate, oddly enough the trip seemed to improve the ears?!
Chris, very windy indeed, it was 1degC when the sun was away, it was bloody freezing in that wind.
David, well spotted. The Hubba HP (current spec) and the Carbon Reflex got their first outing, it was interesting stuff, I’ll write it up over the next few days.
Purple, red and yellow guys and I still went on my tits.
I am not alone…
There was nearly more than the planned dentistry this morning.
That would have been nasty. I heard you laughing on the video, so I reckoned you were OK. It’s nice to know I’m not the only person who trips over obvious obstacles :o)
Aye it was fine. I’m saying that it was only because I was wearing trail shoes that I stayed (mostly) upright.
Can you speak from past experience that you would have definatly hit the ground had you been wearing boots?
As daft and as unscientific as it may be, yes. “Going over on my ankle” doesn’t happen in trail shoes, I can catch slips and trips, botts just dull my senses :o0
thank you, just what I needed to hear! Just been having a bit of an argument on this very subject, (I’m of the mind that trail shoes are safer as they allow you to adapt to a fall quicker, and they are of the oppinion that your less likely to go over in boots)
having done exactly the same routes in boots and trail shoes, trail shoes aways felt safer!
Aye, evolution gave us ankle joints for a reason, why restrict them?
to give psycological support prehaps?
Must be, ankle support is a myth distributed by boot manufacturers marketing departments :o)
