So at my local burner pot luck last night a guy who volunteers as a ranger says that the playa will get all up in your shoes and boots and you end up picking rocks and dirt out.
So I was wondering it would be a good idea to get some gravel/dirt guards for my hiking boots -- the same kind used for river wading to keep rocks and debris out of wading boots when fishing.
Here's what I was thinking: http://goo.gl/WMjPaZ
They're cheap enough I will have an extra pair to gift if they are great.
Also I was thinking about double-layering my socks ala
thin base layer: http://goo.gl/G2jLvz
And then hot-weather hiking sock over
Good ideas? Bad ideas?
