  1. Tracking Boots

    July 24, 2013 by myeye

    Some of you have seen our tracking test area.  It’s around 600 acres in the Big Foot section of the Cibola National Forest.  I am so hoping that that area has enjoyed the quantity of rainfall we’ve had here.  It’s time to go back to tracking with Chase.  I’m planning (hoping) to get him certified to enter our January TD Test.  My tracking adventures came to a halt when my wonderful Ecco hiking boots died.  The injected rubber soles simply began to peel away.  I sent the boots in to a factory authorized repair shop in San Diego for inspection.  They declared the problem to be a manufacturer’s defect (though I’d been using the boots for more than 10 years).  I was given a 50%-off voucher for a new paid of boots.

    My leather boots are no longer manufactured.  I’ve been checking the website since January and now FINALLY, there is a pair of boots that I think will work.  I ordered them yesterday.  Once they arrive, we will have no excuse.


    Chase, find it!
