: Seemed like a good idea at the time.
BTW, it was the Smartwool Ultralights that I picked up from SierraTradingPost. It seems weird to praise a sock, but they are quite nice. They stay up like they are glued to your calves, and don't itch, or feel clammy. That is all I expect, and it's more than most socks are capable of delivering.
