Hi.
Hey.
Pause.
Beautiful day.
It really is.
Not gonna be more of these left.
Gotta get the hiking in while I can.
Definitely.
Pause.
Keen’s?
Hm?
The boots.
Ah. Yes.
Good company.
Are they?
They do a lot for wilderness initiatives — notably in areas with bear population.
That’s great.
No, it really is. A company that spends it’s money on the ground where the boots go.
Smart.
Good company. Good politics.
Yeah, I don’t really follow… I have a wide foot. Keens are good for that.
Pause.
So….
