I have a series in KHP that most caches in it haven't been attempted in over a year. It does require some hiking though. I'm planning to make a maintenance run through as soon as the rains stop long enough to let the area drain but I'm undecided on whether I should even keep it going if nobody is visiting them.
Is anybody working on the puzzle for Blood Sport GC2MEAR ?
I was in the location of the final and decided to look to see if it was there since I knew it was on the list. No such luck. If someone is close to working it out I can replace it since the owner looks to have dropped out a few years ago. Otherwise, I can post a NA.
Hiking boots make more sense to me than a work boot like that. Work boots aren't usually as comfortable as a hiking boot so you'll be able to walk much further with hiking boots. These are what I use. http://www.rei.com/product/706762/asolo-fugitive-gtx-hiking-boots-mens. They got me through an 11-day backpacking trip a few years ago and are still going strong.
If you're worried about snakes, you could always keep a pair of ray guards in your car and strap them on when you are going anywhere "snakey". https://www.austinkayak.com/products/5453/ForEverlast-Ray-Guard-Shied-Protectors.html
Whatever you get, I recommend getting a pair of Superfeet insoles to go with your new boots. http://www.rei.com/product/752125/superfeet-orange-premium-insoles-mens-medium-to-high-volume. Your feet will thank you. When you try on your boots, pick a size that will give you a little extra room for the insoles.
He logged one of mine with that same note at GCF. I knew it was probably BS by his reputation so I checked his cache log history. Sure enough, he wasn't anywhere near Texas at the time. He must have a friend that sends (sells?) him a list after events like this.
They call it a "Geo Trail", not a Geo Tour but I intend to do the JFK Geo Trail in Dallas at some point. It's somewhat of a gloomy subject for a geo trail but I do enjoy visiting places that can put historical events in context for you.
