2nd Jack and Willie re Wool Socks

Good wool socks - merino or Smartwool - are one of creations gifts to man. They can help keep feet warm even when wet. I get 'em at Costco - about $12.00 for three pairs.
And if you can also keep your feet reasonably dry, you're absolutely golden for warmth. I have a pair of knee-high neoprene boots cut from the legs of a worn-out divers' drysuit. Boots + merino socks = toasty warm feet - and the water's a tad cooler here than in Louisiana...lol...
