    Default Wally world bags - and foot relief

    I thought I would bring this up if I had nt already do to the time of the season...


    For those that's footwear has lost its water repellency I would like to suggest one of my favorite

    alternatives - and a blister reducer to boot...


    Double up some Wally bags put em on after socks and tie em in knots just above the boot height...

    Your feet may sweat a little more by end of day but its hardly noticeable while at work.

    You will be pleasently surprised at how your feet wont rub cause theres not as much friction against whatever foot wear you got on and in turn reduces callouses or blistering.

    i hope those that try this dont get gigged for reading the vine cause the bag ends tend to show below the pant legs at times if the bag ends arent tucked and you do hikers.

    just passin a poor old timers trick along...

    GOOD DAY

    Nothing beats a good pair of boots, though this is a great tip! Thanks!

    Hey SIC1 - Nice to hear from you again! I have used the Wally World plastic bags years ago to get more mileage out of a leaky pair of cheap hiking boots. Today I use the plastic bags to allow me to slide my feet easily into my Wally World Chinese-made Muck boot knock-offs. Luv Ya Man!

    Another use for those bags that I've used is tying them over top the receiver when locating in light rain... keeps water off the display, and most of us vets locate by sound anyways...

    I also have a cheap umbrella I use to set over top of transmitter in light rain also... keeps all equipment that much dryer

    I had one of those ice cooler duffel bags in the garage. Never used it because the ice would melt to quick and be full of water instead.
    Turns out it made one of the best waterproof transmitter bags I ever had. ice-cooler-bag-xx43-811.jpg Kind of like this one but they come in whatever shape fits your transmitter. You can work in the pouring rain and your electronics stay safe and dry. Just pull the leads out and zip it back up. It even had side pockets to put my tools in. They're not too expensive either.

    It is a great tip but i have to mention one thing that is bugging me.

    Your Avatar.

    I know you didn't create it so I'm not busting your balls but rather the person who created the logo. When you have something with a red line through it, it means you don't want that. For example. A dog with a red line through it means no dogs. In the case of your avatar you have "no cuts" with the red line so it really means no, no cuts. Or... Cuts.

    Just sayin

    The catch of the No Cuts logo has to do with the evolution to USIC...

    As you may have been familiar (out west) with No Cuts(the originating company owned by Sprint which once had operations under the same name in Nevada and Washington) which morphed into ACLS CLS and presently ohms a canadian owned operation with a side show of private investors now known as USIC thus the reason and use of the original logo...

    I still have a nocuts orange hat (same logo) as a keepsake...


    And notoriously known by contractors as "mo' cuts"...

    Were you there when North Carolina Utility Locating Services (NoCuts) was owned by Carolina Telephone and Telegraph? just curious.

    Thanks!
