Re: shoes/boots


Unless they really smoothed out the roads since I wintered there in 1974 & 1977 you may want to make sure your shoes are high tops that will protect your ankles from being sprained. The ‘ground’ there is actually volcanic lava from eons ago from Erebus. Pretty uneven in places with large stones. Cabela’s and most of the good outfitter stores carry good high top hiking boots. Don’t go cheap because the lava is like sandpaper and can degrade soft rubber rather fast.
