I can’t resist making fun of these silly folks.
Fresh fall leaves, Mr. Guttmann said, are “crunchy and cool,” and mud is “black dough that squishes up between your toes.” Dennis Slattengren, a 60-year-old nudist who owns a vending machine route and who was at least wearing shorts for this trek, savored the texture of silt that has run onto concrete and partially dried — “like warm velvet,”
I’m sure he would savor the pain created by doing the Great Range barefoot. How about a barefoot 46, in all 4 seasons, from all 4 points of the compass? Ha!
If someone has to be rescued cuz they weren’t wearing shoes, should they be considered negligent?
