    Now would be a good time to tell the story of the DRIVER of the Proud American and how the "DRIVER" Robert Walter Thorne in his last dieing breath saved the rest of the Prouds crew by turning into the bank instead of the other direction which would have put the truck over the edge, causing it to roll down the hill, killing everybody in the box.

    GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN, he was a DRIVER to the end.

    Well Done Thread, Outstanding! Thanks for the Great read and Service of the few for the many. I have an old friend that I have not seen for 25 plus years that now I have to locate. Larry McGowen, Driver, said you never seen rain till you been in the NAM.

    Larry gave me a pair of what looked like fairly new Jungle Boots. What Larry "gave me was a BADD case of Jungle Rot". It took about two, three months of antibiotics I think, before it went away. Good thing I had a Filipino Doctor who new what exactly I got, had.

    Jungle rot never goes away! If I wear cheap boots in the summer it will flare up guaranteed. Needless to say I have bought very good boots for many years. People that have never had or seen jungle rot think it is just extremely wet feet and it goes away when they dry out. WRONG!!!!!!!!!!

    rickf you are most certainly right. When buying work boots I always spend the MONEY to buy water proof boots, usually RedWing loggers. Problem is my feet sweat then the blisters will start. So as a first strike I will use Gold Bond powder and keep dry socks on.

    The Gift that keeps on giving.

    Agreed on the Gold Bond.

    I got the "gift" in Panama and if I can't get my feet dried in just a few hours I'm in for it!!

    I also use Tinactin spray powder several times a week as a preventative measure.

    You have to make sure you have boots that breath, real leather boots breath. The synthetic stuff says it does but it does not work for me. I have to be very careful of the footbed also, activated charcoal seems to work well if I am going to be working in hot areas. I did asphalt work for years and it doesn't get a whole lot hotter than that, I would change out of the work boots and into sneakers before leaving work. Of coarse, anyone who has ever done hot asphalt knows you have one pair of boots and they are pretty much destroyed the first day and only good for that work. You don't wear them home!
