Here is a link to my Tester Stats page:
Tester Stats page <http://teststatus.backpackgeartest.org/T1873.htm>
At this time I have completed 1 test series and 15 OR's.
(For some reason I am getting a "404 Error" when trying to view OR's, so
I am not able to provide a link to this page at this time.)
Over the next few months I have a 3-day trip planned in the Great Smoky
Mountains as well as a 8-day hike in which the wife and I will thru hike
the Smokies via the Appalachian Trail. I am currently trying to put
together some other backpack trips as well as day hikes to some other
local state parks as well.
I am interested in how well these boots will grip to the wet trails of
the AT. There are lots of rocks and roots that jut up in the trail that
offer plenty of chances to slip and fall. These rocks will also provide
opportunity to test the midsoles and the shank's ability to keep my feet
from getting all bruised up. I will also test the GTX liner, both in
terms of waterproof and breathability. And of course the uppers for
their ability to hold it all together.
At the time the only Labor of Love I hold at BGT is as a newbie tester
who has just finished his first test series and about to finish his
second. I have completed 15 OR's and am currently taking out some newly
acquired gear and will be able to produce a few more OR's in the near
I would like to take the time to thank Lowa and BGT for giving me the
opportunity to test these shoes.
