Re: Canadian-made Sorel boots?

When I talk about cold weather up here and our minus 45 25 37C etc.
I should qualify that.

I am sure many of you have been in much colder waether than us poor folks up here.

When I talk about serious weather I have failed to also include humidity.

When you mention minus 33 at Ohare and a wind, I think you are in worse weather than us here.

The norh is a very dry place, could even be described as desert like

When we have the low temperatures we will have a humidity level of perhaps 5%, while you folks may have a humidity of 30 to 40%.

You will feel the chill more than we will, we are perhaps just a little uncomfortable.

Today I took a visiting Mariachi group from Mexico out to a freinds place for a dog sled ride, it was minus 26C.
It was record cold for them, I was wearing a jacket so was uncomfortable.

Your cold is I readily admit much worse than ours, and more dangerous for hypothermia because of the humidity.

Re: Canadian-made Sorel boots?

Hi: Garand...Dave I wear a Canadian made zippered dress boot for work. Driving a bus means lots of pedal pressure and movement on the signal buttons and accel/brake. I like the dress look and smooth crepe sole, but I've found out from my dealer that Martino boots are the last Canadian mfg'd boots and are gettin' really expensive. Alf

Re: Canadian-made Sorel boots?

Hi folks;
I did a bit of research and most of the "shoe-pac" type of boots (including currently mfg. Sorels) are made somewhere in Asia (Vietnam, China, Sri Lanka). LL Bean still offers boots "sewn in Maine" but that may mean the parts were mfg in other locations. I plan on calling them before ordering. They will make a nice birthday present.

Thanks to all for your advice/input, etc.

There are 10 kinds of people in the world, those who understand binary, and those who don't.

Re: Canadian-made Sorel boots?

You say you want to retire to Dakota.
Why not retire to the Yukon, There are probably in the neighborhood of 3000 folks from the lower 48 in our town who have been here for as much as thirty years. (they still vote in USA elections).
I have freinds from Georgia, California, and other points down south.
There is also a lot of cross border visitors coming from Alaska to visit and shop.

We have the best weather, the best health care, the best wilderness, the best fishing the best hunting, do I keep on.
After you are 65 your meds are free, all health care is virtualy free. (for that I have to thank southern canadians and transfer payments, it is a canadian thing)
Fishing is free, hunting is free, visiting parks is free.

You gotta try it to believe it.

Young people bting their parents up here becaus housing is at a low cost for them.
