> how do you deal with the sopping trailrunners that're inevitable going to be wet when you wake up in the morning and prepare to move on?
When I crawl in, I wring out my socks and put on my dry pair, take the insoles out of the shoes, and turn the shoes upside down in the vestibule to drain overnight. In the morning, I put the wet socks and shoes back on (yuck). If it has stopped raining then they'll soon dry out, otherwise they'll get wet anyway. My Gore-Tex boots and Gore-Tex XCR runners all wet out within a day, so I've found I'm better off with runners that drain and dry quicker. (I have a pair of Rocky Gore-Tex socks, but I haven't tried them yet. I'm saving them for freezing wet.)
