I'm just concerned they'll all be cleared out by the time we get there, so I'm trying to buy ahead.
um, black, 14 inch high, they say 'Ozark Trail' along the top. The felt liner measures 1/2 inch thick and is removable [I did not know it was removable until just now]. And HEY! better yet the liner fits back inside too! size 12, they have a velcro strap across the ankle [why? I don't know]. and a draw string around the top.

I do not think that we paid over $25 for each pair.

Mine are on their second year.

Our NC Walmart only carries flimsy winter boots too. Not anything that would keep your feet warm and dry for longer periods. I may check their website though and try site-to-store shipping.

Our closest 'Super-duper Walmart' [in Brewer] is located next to a surplus store.

The surplus store has great 'arctic' mittens, and snowshoes, and wool-felt shirts and pants, and woven wool shirts and pants, and animal traps, and heavy insulated boots [that would only be used if you were traveling North of the arctic circle]. We use their mittens and I wear their wool felt pants

They also have a nice selection of Mosin-nagant 7.62 carbines

And hats.

And they have a really nice liquid fueled submersible water heater. [picture a device that sets down into a 55-gallon drum filled with water and then burns any flammable liquid to heat that water] We were drooling all over their display model. Read the manual, dis-assembled and re-assembled it too. But we just could not think of a good application for such a device.

We have a snow blower, the largest model that Sears Roebuck carries.

It is 4 years old.

Does anyone on CD need a snow blower?
