Faroe, I may have seen you on the Appalachian Trail back in the day. While hiking, I bet you carried that tape by wrapping it around your walking stick or hiking poles, too.One last thing: This may be controversial, but I've used it many a time with success (lots of hiking, and also planting trees for a company) duck tape. Use it directly on the skin BEFORE you get the blister (and, NEVER pop a blister). I've wrapped my feet and hands, depending. It protects.
