Out in the woods with Grandson Cameron yesterday AM,,, He was following me, and he kept sinking through the crust on the snow. Not his fault though, the only snowshoes I had for him where those belonging to Herself... 10”x40”,,, My traditional Faber’s with lampwick bindings are 18”x39” He was floundering pretty hard and falling on his knees much of the time,,, He kept asking me; “What am I doing wrong?” In some places there is yet 2 feet of snow on the ground. He was a good sport about it all... The imprints of my own snowshoes can be seen in the snow ahead of him. I was floating quite nicely. The importance of having good snowshoes, that are a match to the weight of the wearer, and the snow, is a really big deal.
