    Hey Coaltrain - off topic a bit, but.. I always take my cell phone with me when I go outside, just in case. I know you don't have any cell coverage where you're at, but have you considered getting a pair ofvthe FRS radios so you could call Mrs C in case you fall or need assistance?

    Danner is all I wore on duty. I still have a pair I outgrew. Went from 12 to 14. I think weight shifted elsewhere also. Lol

    Yeah - thought about that. But I know I would never remember to take it with me.....

    When I go out yonder out of sight of the house I will tell Mrs. C what I am doing and about how long I will be. She knows what sounds she should be hearing as far as the tractor, chainsaw, etc. it it gets too quiet for long enough she will come investigate.

    My boot requirements when I chose the Danner were a) waterproof b) steel toe and c) USA made.

    This is the Danner boot I bought - their Quarry model with an "alloy" toe (as opposed to a steel toe I suppose.) Unfortunately the boot isn't 100% sourced in the US but at least it's assembled here.

    Somewhat on-topic:
    For a good part of 2018 we had a major house addition and remodeling project going on and there were primarily two guys here five days a week for months with the contractor helping out now and then. I was really disappointed there was zero emphasis on workplace safety. Nobody ever wore safety glasses and one guy wore something like a running or tennis shoe. There was a helper kid for a few days and he got something in his eye (what a surprise) and I took him back to the shop and used an eye wash bottle (I have two eye wash stations) to flood his eye.

    They never cleaned up at the end of the workday (except for putting most of the tools away) but I was busy sweeping and picking up every day during the day - last thing I wanted was somebody falling or tripping on their mess.

    I should have insisted on a copy of their workman's comp insurance but never did.

    Danners are good boots. I've never had any but my dad swears by them. Always used them as flight boots in both his 26 years as a search and rescue pilot in the Air Force, and now as a medivac pilot in his civilian life.

    In this case, sandals would be safer.
