Whenever I purchase a new pair of hiking boots, I always get real optimistic and start imaging all the places I will go with them on. I am expecting delivery of my new boots tomorrow, and tonight the possibilities are popping up in my mind. Examples : Wondering if another trip to Glacier NP will happen; How many new bird species will I see with these boots; More time on the Blue Ridge Parkway; A trip to the Midwest and the Black Swamp Bird Observatory.
So I thought I would ask if other folks have similar reactions when purchasing new hiking boots?

Same here, I often get nostalgic about where things have been too! These boots have taken me through Yellowstone and Teton, literally to mountain summits and down through the smallest creeks and streams.
It’s fun to think about the miles things have traveled.
