These old water boots.:lol:
Just in time for the post Irma hurricane treasure hunt to begin, my new boots showed up on the door step yesterday afternoon...Irma is showing up here in St.Petersburg in a few more hours.:unsure:
Thank heavens she is loosing strength as she makes her way up the West coast. I spent days prepping my house for everything from flooding to flying debris by boarding up windows and then evacuated since I'm on the water. So, as long as I get through this with little damage to repair, I should be putting these new boots to work in the next few days.
My old shoes are a few years old +, and I definitely got my use of them...maybe a little longer than I should, but I could not find them again in my size and width. They where NEO SPORT 6mm /low cut/ hard sole /wide, and I will get them again when I find another pair. In the mean time, I ordered these US DIVERS high cut/ 5mm/ from Deal Genius for $20 shipped. The sole is not as hard/thick as the NS ones, and they are lighter. I figured at that price, I will get my use out of them.

High milage on those bad boys...great deal on the new ones... i bought a pair of dive boots for $5 at a flea market a few years ago and love em..only wished i had purchased the other pair he had for sale for same price, granted they are used but that dont bother me none... gotta tell you i would be tempted to detect the gulf while the water is way out..what an opportunity, but dangerous im sure...good luck bob stay safe...

why is it when you retire you can't get time to do what you want? I think I had more time when I worked.

Lol...the only thing retired are my hunting boots.
I have a couple more years to go, but plan to keep going several more years if I can.
Lost power during the night, lots of trees, branches, and fences down. Police won't let me out to my island home yet, but have heard from those who stayed all is good.
I should have plenty of extra time to hunt the beaches when they open them since I sustained no damage to my homes.
Hope others can recover quickly, in my area it was not as bad as it could of been, Naples and Fort Meyers took a hard hit as did the Keys.
