27 days to Belize

The sand in the hourglass no longer looks so daunting. This trip is going to happen.

Just a few weekends left to get things sorted out, but I think I’m mostly ready for Belize.

I did have one little setback earlier in the week. Mainly, a no-contact injury in my 40+ indoor soccer league. Looks like a partially ruptured left calf, an injury I’m familiar with having tired it out on my right calf a couple years ago. Good news is I’m already up and walking on it, almost without a limp. Should be fine in a couple weeks.

Speaking of legs and feet and whatnot, I also picked up a pair of the Simms Zipit II flats booties. I have had Patagonia boots for the flats for a long time, but 1. those either need to be replaced or repaired, and 2. they take up a lot of room when packings (I wear a 14). So, I decided to try out something different. The soul here seems thick enough to stand up to the odd urchin or jagged shell and they should be lighter and smaller when packing. We’ll see how it goes.

I’ve been at the vice a little bit, although not enough. Tying up some #6-8’s, with weed guards, for the bones and I haven’t decided what I need to try and whip up for baby tarpon yet… likely something bunny-ish.

The count down continues. Looking forward to it all.

  1. I love my Simms Wading boots! Very comfortable for the flats and death rock of the Bahamas. No coral like Belize. Good luck with your endeavors. Acklins for me in 10 days.

  2. They certainly seem like they will hold up well. Have a good time in Aklins!
