Co-worker: What did you do this weekend?
Me: I spent an hour drilling sheet metal screws into the bottom of a pair of trail runners. Actually, Bill did most of it. I mostly just held the shoe.
Co-worker: You are weird.
Me: Thank you. Goodbye.
After my Yaktrax sort of fell apart at Chilly Cheeks I contemplated buying another pair or a pair if Microspikes. But I am cheap, so I decided to spike a pair of older trial runners with screws. I'd heard of people doing this and there are a few how-to guides on the Internet, but I really didn't know what I was doing.
We made a trip to Lowe's just to buy a pack of $4.98 screws (and an extension cord, does the excitement ever end?). Next home, dinner, pjs and then it was time to screw.

There's still a bit of snow and ice on the ground and we are suppoesd to get more on Tuesday and Wednesday so hopefully I will be able to take them for a spin soon.
