The Zamberlan 230 SH Crosser Plus GTX RR look interesting and are supposed to be a
lighter version of the Vioz GT boots.

I don't give out specific route information, my belief is that it takes away from the whole adventure spirit of a trip, if you need every inch planned out, you'll have to get that from someone else.

I have a 32 yo pair of Danner Lights. Need resole and not too sure how the gore tex is holding yp; so bought a new pair of similar service boots with the Ketterlift heels for this year. Old ones are as comfortable as ever!
