I can not believe how hard it was to find some good old fashioned rubber boots. I ended up having to drive clear out to Newberg to hit a farm supply store.
I also got a nice headlamp, so the "lights on, but nobody's home" jokes should start flowing freely.
I still need to find a hat. I need a wide brimmed hat with lots of ventilation. I figured G.I.Joes would have something, given their wide selection of fishing supplies, but no such luck. The hunt continues. One restriction to add to the difficulty, I don't want camo. I really do not want to go into the wild back country of some foreign land with an active militant upraising looking like I might have anything to do with any military. I just want ot look like a harmless tourist. No camo. That, and if I wear the hat back home, I don't want to look like I'm dressed up to play golf with Larry The Cable Guy.
