15 March 2014 – I’ve been having trouble with my feet. I knew that my feet would swell at the start of the hike. I purposefully bought hiking shoes one size bigger (size 13 vice my normal 12) to account for the swelling. Apparently, I need to upsize to a 14. I’ve been ignoring the blister discomfort thus far but I need to fix the problem. I’m in Franklin, SC where they have a good outfitter and a “shoe guru”. I’ll keep you posted.
