Non veni pacem mittere, sed gladium.
Snow shoes are fun, and good exercise, and don't require batteries, come to think of it so are kids!
Snow shoes don't require batteries, it's true.But Christmas is coming, and I'd advise everyone to stock up on batteries, all kinds of them! One Christmas I didn't- and naturally, all the toys my kids wanted to play with the most required batteries that I didn't have. (I also didn't know that they were getting those toys, but that excuse doesn't cut it with the offspring!)
