South West England / Re: Pool to St. Ives
« Last post by ninthace on Today at 21:08:11 »
Apart from my left small toes, which sometimes gets blistered, I have never had a problem.
I was wearing a fairly new pair of socks, Brigdales.  I usually wear them and not had a problem.
I also had some fairly new 'gel' insoles.
Have worn the combination before, but over a shorter distance, so not really sure why yesterday it all went PT.
Shall change the insoles and see what happens, once I can stand properly again.
I have not had blisters for yonks, the last time was when the lining of my boot split. However, I always have a box of Compeed in my first aid kit.  They weigh next to nothing to carry and walking companions have benefitted from them.  Just because you donít normally get blisters does not mean you never will, and a Compeed applied at the first sign of trouble stops a walk becoming a painful ordeal.

Can I recommend carrying Compeed on your next trip?

I parked up at Minions this morning and enjoyed 14 miles up to Fox tor and back in a loop.  I arrived back at the car just after 2pm and it was packed solid. There were cars parked for 200 yards down both sides of the road too.  I have never seen any thing like it up there.  Happily the hordes had spread out onto the moor at that point, so not many people about.  Another beautiful day too, so you can't blame any one for heading out of town. 


I can't help thinking lock down has created a new appreciation of the freedom of the moors in many previously gym bond people.  Long may it continue, as long as people enjoy it and respect the freedoms they have.  O0
