    I'm excited about trying the new hiking boot. I love my Sawyers so much. My feet have literally changed shape for the better.

    I have the ideal place to stargaze. Pahoa, Hawaii. My auntie left us an unspoiled off grid plot of land we enjoy camping on. The sky is stunning there. No light pollution whatsoever! You feel like you're standing IN the Milky Way.

    Thank you for all you do!
