In the mailbag came this note from Cody who decided to trek through snow in his Classic Vibram Five Fingers to harvest a Christmas tree:
so i decided against all advice to go into the mountains ( mt.baker national forest) to harvest a christmas tree, and to make things even more interesting, i wore classics, in the snow! needless to say it was one of the most amazing experiences i have ever had in them, i could climb icy slopes and downed tress with ease unlike my friends and family in boots
i recommend people try their fivefingers in the snow if they can handle the temperatures and snow between their toes! i loved it! thanks cody!
I don't know whether to call Cody brave or crazy — but I do know he has some stout feet to handle snow 'tween his minimally clad toes!
Hope you found a good tree, Cody! If nothing else, sounds like you had a great experience!
