  1. Put Vaseline or Paw Paw ointment in your nipples, cracks and crevices to prevent chaffing!
  2. Wear leather boots underwater and dry while walking to wear in & prevent blisters
  3. Lace up boots with an over knot at the front of the ankle to avoid losing toe nails on long descents
  4. Wear a pair of nylon women’s stocking socks under your walking socks to prevent friction blisters
  5. Putting your bottle of wine close to your lower back when you pack your pack your Valentine’s day picnic makes it more comfortable
  6. Use trekking poles to prevent sausage fingers on long walks
  7. Get yourself a pair of swimmable undies so you can  jump in for a dip any time you’re out walking
  8. Find out if you’re a floppy or stiffy so you know how to get balanced to prevent injuries on long walks
