Jeez, I'm to tired to write anything.
I finally got some hiking boots today. They aren't the Gortex® ones that I thought I wanted, but they are comfortable with a lot of support. They're waterproof and that should be enough for now.
I finally got that little "throwdown" netbook laptop too. I didn't want to take the Mac on the trip and I'm very nervous about taking it to work with me everyday too. Some guys had their trucks broken into recently, and their laptops got stolen. That would pretty much make me cry... a lot.
Ok. I GOTTA go to sleep...
