Thumbs up Career Changes and boots.


I am just curious how many of you have Quit working or have retrained for a Job that you could perform. Neuropathy can be a career ending Condition. The Chances of getting hired at a job through normal channels is really slim. The Best Chance you have is getting fired or let go do to company reorganization. "You have been organized out the door"

I have found a pair of boots I can wear with some comfort.
Cabelas Gortex "Whitetail" hunting boots. They keep my shins and feet warmer than most boots and the 600 thinsulate quilted interior is like wearing a blanket. They are light, flexible and Can be worn in warm weather with the right socks. ( I bought wides and recommend doing that, as they seem to run narrow) They offer many gortex brands.

I wear a thick sock made of wool/polyproplyne/Spandex. I got these at Fred Meyer Stores and they are Black. They look pretty good with my Sandles.
Important thing is my feet look healthy, don't stink, no heavy Calous.
The socks wick moister away from my feet, Changing them 3 times a day is the best if wearing the boots.

I Ride a Scooter For Enjoyment and seem to forget about my feet when I am out riding. Love talking to my mates in the UK...There are a fun bunch.
