Blisters 101: Learn 3 tips to tape blisters & hot spots
This is a short lesson on foot care and blister taping. Recently on a ski trip in the cascades I develpoed a hot spot in the side of my foot. There are 3 tips I wanted to share that work well for my feet, and hopefully help you next time you start feeling the beginnings of a blister. I explain more in the video, but here’s a summary:
1) Put something soft over the blister or hotspot (like the fuzzy side of the mole skin, a bit of the non-sticky side of medical tape, gauze, or a bandaid
2) Lay the tape as flat & smooth as possible
3) Round edges in high friction zones & smash tape to skin
Youtube Adventure School in 2015
One of my New Years resolutions is to start sharing more tips & tricks about adventuring. I worked as a backpacking instructor for many years & miss teaching dearly. I’m hoping that I will learn to teach to a camera at least half as well as I used teach people in person. My goal is to share some of the knowledge I have gleaned over my past few years of walking. Blisters 101 is my first YouTube lesson of 2015, enjoy!
