    and snow snakes if you get way up high. That's why I like the high ankle boots, so I don't get bitten by the dang snow snakes.

    My wife would slap the ever loving you know what out of me if I put my hunting boots on the kitchen counter!

    Dude, my wife has gotten used to me doing all kinds of hunting related stuff on the counter. Boots are nothing compared to butchering....

    Once, I brought home an antelope, and started cutting up the quarters on Mrs. Finks brand spanking new granite countertops.

    I barely survived.
    My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives.

    I've run Meindle's for years and they have treated me well, I recently tried the Lowa GtX Hunter and Crispi HTG GTX. I'm completely and utterly disgusted with the Lowa's and their customer service. The rubber toe band peeled completely away on a 4 day scouting trip and they were brand new and they wouldn't do anything to help me solve the problem. The Crispi's are still running strong but for $500 a pair I think I'll go back to the Meindle Alaskans.
