For trekking around Alaska and the ship, I wanted comfy combat boots. I got a pair at Hot Topic but they don't fit will under pants. I ordered the Doc Martens but I swear the left foot is too loose in the heel and the right foot is a bit too small and hurts my toe. So finally I just ordered these today:
These are tanker boots. And I'll only have a week or less to break them in - assuming they fit.
I also need a cheap pair of binoculars and maybe a folding umbrella more sturdy than the one I have now. I'll try and fit in a trip to Target and maybe a sporting good store. It's challenging packing for a trip in which the weather will be between 55 to 85 degrees on any given day.
