PCT 5/27/17 – Day 24

430.4/2,650 miles

400+ miles into our trek and we’re still blister-free!!

Our Preventative Steps to Staying Blister Free: 

1. Plan small breaks throughout your hike to take off your shoes and air out your feet. Better yet, stop at a stream or creek and soak them if you can .

2. If you feel a hot spot, STOP! Don’t wait. Tape up the hot spot with first aid, paper or duct tape to prevent further friction. 

3. Rotate between 2-3 pairs of socks. We usually switch socks 1-2x a day. If we’re near water, we’ll wash our dirty socks and tie them to our packs to dry. 

Beware of poodle dog bush! Google it.
