    Haha I know it was a joke, what I was saying is did Elvis actually ever wear blue suede shoes?

    Guys like you usually get gallstones or serious injuries and whinge about how they have to take annual leave during their recovery.

    Be honest. Save your sick leave for when you are sick.

    On the whole parcel delivery at work issue, all I can say is employers: hire an incompetent mail boy.

    A few missing packages of those nice Henry Carter ties and you'll soon have your workers making other arrangements for the delivery of their goods.

    +1 I like the way you think. We should get together and make some money.

    No, no, no.

    Hire a very competent mail boy and say 'Anything from Henry Carter, Pediwear, Mr Porter or Herring, bring to me first'.

    Hire Gerry Nelson as the mail boy.

    He might have to take a pay cut but think of the free shoes Gezz.

    Hi Gerry

    I own the RM Williams' Rigger Boots. Great boots but I wouldn't entrust them with a long walk as they are pretty heavy.

    Guys, thanks for the info. I posted here because I knew you guys would point me in the right direction and you did! [​IMG]

    What I should have mentioned is that I'll only need the boots for the rocky part of the walk - I'll use runners which I already have for the flat parts. The runners will be uncomfortable on the rocks and I need something with a sturdier sole. This was based on advice from a friend who did the walk two years ago who mentioned using the weekends to walk parts of the trail to get used to the terrain so I'll definitely be doing that when the weather turns warmer.

    Also, we'll have at least one supply car and will be walking pretty much without a load so that makes things somewhat more straightforward.

    Toby, thanks for posting the link to that FAQ, I'll go over it in more detail tonight.

    By the way, that hiking boot looks freaking awesome! I guess that if these boots are that comfortable, I'm going to be looking for excuses to take long walks which ties in quite nicely with the photography aspect. I plan to take lots of photos during the walk.

    bhall41, that's a good point. I think any heavy boots are going to be off the list then. Thanks for letting me know.

    PoP, I'd be useless as the mailboy - I'm sure you know that as you accumulate this stuff, your needs/wants become more and more specific along with the list of vendors that have this stuff.

    I just don't think I'm going to get that many grey cashmere ties or dark brown shell cordovan balmoral boots in my size. With that kind of return on my time investment in going through all the packages, I'll say "Stuff it!" and get people to buy me drinks before they could collect their stuff. These days, Id be more likely to photography it and put it up on the blog!

    I know THAT will fit!

    I've got a couple of serious hiking friends who swear by worn in Dunlop Volleys.

    Around where I live there have been a few nude beaches and naturists who campaigned heavily for the right to do nude bathing. I have never got it and lots a people found it very confronting when they encountered them walking in the park.

    nope.
    I'm young and will live for ever!

    If I get really sick what the feck are 10 days going to achieve?
    And if I use all those days up on one sickness then I'm screwed if it happens again.

    My employer is expecting me to take off 10 days a year and I am to meet their expectations.
