A Thorny Issue

If you hike barefoot as much as I do, it is inevitable that at some point you will step on a thorn. Here are some thoughts on that.

World Cup . . . Never Barefoot

Fútbol (soccer) is one of those games that just seem a natural for playing barefoot. It’s played on a large grassy field. You see kids all over the world playing that way. It’s probably safer played barefoot; with all that kicking going on, I sure would prefer that a misaimed kick come from a bare foot.

But you sure won’t see a World Cup game played barefoot.

“Deadly Dunes” was the second-to-last episode with Cody Lundin. It was actually quite a fun watch, even though it did still have a few frustrating bits of misinformation in it, and the usual arrogance of Joe Teti.

When I wrote about Barefoot Sailors, the example I used was the Spanish-American war (during the blockade of Cuba). It really only showed those sailors doing their exercises on deck in bare feet.

But what about real sailing (as opposed to powered) ships?

My Winter Boots

I know some barefooters who try to keep their feet in shape over the winter by keeping a pan of gravel in the garage. They then spend a bit of time doing the old gravel massage. It’s not like walking, but at least it keeps the soles thick, exercised, and (mostly) in shape.

I’ve tried something a bit different.

As I think about much of the advice that I keep seeing coming from podiatrists and other experts, I figure I must be doing something wrong.

Their admonitions just aren’t coming true.

A Little Tennis Blurb

I really don’t feel like writing much today, so I think I’ll just highlight a little news blurb I came across. It’s one of those small stories that leaves you asking for more information.

The story is in regards to the Eastern Grass Court Tennis Tournament in the summer of 1969.
