My Locale Southern Turkey
About Me I've been a woods and wilderness wanderer since I was a kid. Have traveled on foot with a pack, camped, hunted, fished many U.S National Forests, Mexico, Latin America, Asia and Europe. My particular interest is in exploring the remains of ancient cultures and traveling with traditional peoples: nomads and the few remaining forest dwellers. When given a choice I've always traveled light, or perhaps I should say with minimal gear.

Vivo & others
I have a pair of Vivo 'The One.' These fit me better than any other shoe I have found, wide toe box, and no rocker, actually flat. However, mine too are falling apart with less than 60 mile...
