I'm new to area and so far I'm pretty impressed by how difficult it is to bushwhack in the rainforest's of the SE. I've noticed on some of the trails I've been on that I can see some people wear caulked boots. So here are some questions ...
Anyone use caulked boots?
How do you best deal with the devils club? Leather gloves are a no brainer, but what about the rest of your body?
Is keeping your feet dry simply a hopeless and impossible goal? Nobody really hikes in those "Alaskan Sneakers" do they?
