This month's tip is the courtesy of Larry and Larraine Coplin, who have supplied a few other great tips to us in previous months. The headline explains it all - if you have wet leather boots tear off and wad up several sheets of newspaper and jam these into the inside of your wet boots. The newspaper will act like a sponge or a wick and will draw moisture from the inside of your boot. Periodically replace the damp newspaper with new, dry wads of paper, and continue doing so until your boots are dry. The Coplin's say your boots should dry overnight if kept in a warm room. They should know -- they used to live and hike in Michigan where wet boots were a constant!
