    every serious interested party in shoes should be aware of this...

    +1. I feel like listening to the shoe makers who post about shoes is on par with listening to the tailors who post about clothes.

    You might consider changing your location to "in the door."

    As in: 'stand up, hook up, shuffle to the door'.

    'Stand in the door'

    like that...

    Heh. At 65 the only daily dozen I do is the daily half-dozen--naps, that is. Once upon at time, I was in pretty good shape, however. I could run five miles with full gear and rifle and do upwards of 300 sit-ups, half that many push-ups (real push ups, not this on your knees crap) and even 25-50 one arm push-ups on either side. Course in those days I was about 20 lbs lighter (135) so I didn't have that much weight to lift to begin with.

    Superb !
    I expect the MH71 last to pass through time way better than the TG73.
