    I also cringe when I see people walking the beach, any beach, without footwear (unfortunate but true these days of discarded needles and prevalent drug abusers). Just the fishing hooks alone that I've found over the yrs on the beach and in the shallow surf would give anyone pause about not wearing footwear in the sand.

    during the summer I still see some hunters wearing thin or no footwear - as a kid - before I started water hunting - I step on rusty nail - bunch of glass and a few sea creatures
    by age 14 I would wear old sneakers in the water - I wear thick wet boots now - always

    I will post a pic of the ring eventually - its just a plain band
    I got in the water yesterday it was like 45 degrees. Wasn't to bad considering I didn't use gloves or muck boots.

    NO SH** !!! My buddies and I did exactly the same thing in the early 70s in the Toledo area. But, if I recall correctly, my wetsuit wasn't 1/4", it was 7 mm!

    [Just joking.]
