|And More Winter Gear Arrived Today!|
You see, I have dual motivations. The first is the never-ending quest to "expand the riding envelope." In Texas, summer is the affordable time to stock up on winter and wet weather gear. The second motivation is that I DO plan to go back home (Washington State) again. Home gets a LOT of wet and chilly weather. It won't happen tomorrow or even the day after, but to be a Texan, really, you not only have to be born in Texas, but you ought to be placing flowers on the grave of your confederate ancestors. My own ancestors fought on the other side - the side that called it "The War of the Rebellion."
But I digress. Right now, Showers Pass has a "half off closeout" going on to sell off touring shoe covers. These puppies are the sort of SERIOUS rainwear that Burley once offered, but doesn't any more. I'm not sure my feet would stay dry in these covers in the pool, but they'll work for pretty much anything short of that. Even at half off, they aren't cheap, but they aren't ridiculous.
Next up - more rain jackets and, even perhaps handwear...
