In the spirit of the slogan morethan = happy feet
I was wondering what the best way to keep feet dry.
Whether by gtx + Leggings or over boots on my shoe but does anyone know if they are really useful.
Or is it better to give on dry and shoes buy shoes without
"Membrane" that dry quickly and try to keep the foot dry only by
Garvey gtx and/or plastic bag when crossing water flowing spaces

Nishelt question about walk in winter like this to be a source of aithashb
To know how long the shoes/socks aitiyavsh

1. waterproof shoes for a sky, full leather (and not only membrane, etc.). Suitable for most severe conditions unless you are deep sky. The leggings help, but not in the way, and if they are sealed, moisture perspiration is created around the bottom of the foot and the ankle and some mrtiba filters to a sock. Not bad, just a little annoying. Nylon on the shoe not so practical. Most try to adjust the walking surface conditions, and if possible not to go in the water.

2. do not wet them in the first place. Use the unique and wonderful walk, mandpt from the water and moisture out, and prevents much of the inside finished rowing. Call it optimism.

3. you can't (that's the optimistic from the previous section). Is no great boots. So put on your feet, walk hard and massive mud and water, eventually get wet sock. If you're not wet, cold conditions not so terrible shoe and finally again, often there are cases not-dry while hiking or Leila

4. why would you do that to yourself? Select answer or other route.

Shoe selection is based on several parameters:
1) climatic conditions.
2) weight is carried on the back.
3) finding the comfort shoe.
This element!

In cold climates and wet we require and need insulation ability, that means we have to use
The materials which are isolated and "breathe", like shoe leather when we smear the wax will be opaque (from good skin) and breathing hot climates it is less desirable and sometimes overbearing (so think if you want a shoe for this purpose only or also other climates).

The shoe combines membrane (GORE TEX or SYMPATEX) cause the humidity accumulated
Of activity should evaporate so you stay dry and also outside (rain, ashvia, pool)
And hazathch.

Notable that shoe fits better, volatile loner better and more comfortable foot
With sock suitable for the climate (in cold climates with massive stocking THERMO LITE)
When the sweating and isolated; idipo,

Certainly giters bshleg (leggings) would prevent penetration from the top of the shoe.

Shoe with tibsht membrane at the same time as a normal shoe (while not on your feet while resting/sleeping) Teflon membrane may not total was water, which absorbs this fabric and foam cushions the shoe, and it is important to assume that water should not enter otherwise you some trouble of losing body heat (filters = dangerous PAL.)

Also idea to fly the foot or shoe is dangerous-sealing plastic cause increasing pressure and moisture inside the shoe, so sweat. No moisture and wet road, cold and dangerous.

Conclusion: the water must not penetrate, must enable and use proper stocking and it is also important to continue this total needs not so cheap ... ... ... ....

Hope that's enough should give some guidance

IR, you talk about snow and cold conditions of Appalachian Trail? It is advisable to specify that.

In season and where you want to go a strong element of Inbox very low temperature fluidity over time, rather than always in "hostel. This is another Opera. (The question how will snow, and how cold mud personally, I choose quality leather, although not a disqualified hagortecs of insulation quality, final weight after all the backpack and bag with low weight myself and budget).

Received excellent advice in the Forum-global measures and select start with regular store, when it turns to be a snowy invite them in the mail the other before canceling.

For how long and whether South or North.

In fact it is unnecessary because North in October not can go and even arrested the Rangers.

Also a problem that South once you reach the mountains experience snow and dangerous.

Leggings and socks is not a problem to add.

About the shoes, I don't have enough knowledge to advise you but joining tip, when common sense and logical.

General to carry with extra weight, money and energy. I'd go out with reasonable minimum and mail invitations as necessary after appropriate preparation for the types of equipment, measuring and testing the products in the store.

Have you checked on TRAILFORUMS about the North walk season

I spoke with someone who makes maintaining a Appalachian Trail. The trail is set to officially three seasons not including winter, the main problem is that, for these marks on trees not visible because the white snow, the northern parts buried under snow that no one removes, they won't recommend here.

The equipment will require special clothing, shoes, crampons and opaque ice axe, a mattress thicker than usual, km course harder, hot tent that will hold snow piled up. All this means big weight.

Reheat in a bonfire won't walk day is relatively few accidents. Can be ideal for traveling in winter but big risks.

Did you mean IRRP out in early October in the middle or at the end? The New York ktadin is something like 650 miles (approx.). It's not hard to complete 650 miles in a month and a half. The weather in the Northern u.s. October already pretty good. I.e. No 80 degrees (Fahrenheit) and no 20 in d!. Temperatures of 60-35 as the average of night and day, respectively, in Maine. In November it goes about 10 degrees Fahrenheit and it's cold. Any chance of snow isn't bad, especially in the North. If possible start in October and end at ktadin no later than mid-November yet on average, reasonable temperatures. What's this mroiachim thatgo strikethe meter .

If I should decide to go in AT New York like I graduated in ktadin at the end of October and no later than the first week of nombr, and I continued to the South if there are doubts to IRRP, for maximum safety.

I'm sorry for the mistake I was going to the South, and from what I asked 3 different forums regarding these months {Oct-Nov-Dec}
No problem walking the path {I asked where these have even argued that it was not still winter hike} and anyway don't need crampons or special winter equipment {except sleeping bag 0 F}

Date 7 Oct perk!

רשמ"צ soon
