Snowshoeing Vercors


I was in Vercors (French mountains), at the beginning of February.

We walked all the day. For lunch we made fire, in the snow. At the end of the meal, we prepared hot wine, so delicious.

I was confortable in my Lowa. :-)

Outlasted any boot I've ever owned

I have owned my pair of Lowa's for 12 years.

My Mother bought them for me to use on my first camp out as a Boy Scout. She bought them way too big, that way I could "grow into them" without needing a new pair.

Let me tell you, they made it all the way through my Eagle Scout ceremony and then six more years. I hiked hundreds of miles in these boots. They came with me to Camp Constantine in 112 degree weather, hiking in the Texas "mountains." My Lowa's were with me hiking in the Rocky Mountains during a camp out, with snow up to my knees.

I took them with me white water rafting in Arkansas, not a smart choice when hiking afterwards, but what did I know? I was 16. They came with me, every time I hit the dirt bike track, or working for a steel company when I got older.

They stood on a volcano in Guatemala during a Scout project, I literally watched my soles smoke, and then hiked back down the volcano in them. They finally gave up the ghost almost exactly 12 yea…

Wonderful and Beautiful Places

Just a couple of the wonderful, and beautiful places, a GPS, and a geocaching game can take you.

Many places found, and enjoyed immensely. Few shared, except amongst those that also desire to keep these outdoor places secret.

Never would have happened without my boots. Thanks, Lowa.

Kentucky to Ireland and Many Places in Between

From 3,406 feet ~ of the highest climb the Emerald Isle has to offer...

To sub-zero sunsets...

And, sunrises at Land Between The Lakes...

From Kentucky to Ireland, and many places in between, my Renegades have led me to some of my best memories.

Here’s to the best pair of boots out there!

Still wearing my 50 year old Lowas!

I have a pair of Lowa boots that I purchased in 1965 from a person in Washington State.

I have used them on and off over the past 50 years, and having just refound them I will continue to use them!

I have hiked in the Olympics, the Adirondacks, Appalachians, many other places, and they have always been my faithful friends.

Amazingly, they have held up, and are in fine shape. These boots are marked "Made in West Germany," a country that no longer exists, but these boots still are fine.
