Clean and rub them, and your feet will go the distance.
Try these remedies for tired, swollen feet next time you settle into camp.
- Soak feet in a cold stream or lake for 5 to 10 minutes.
- Pick a soft patch of ground, lie back, and prop your feet on a boulder or pack. Hold this position for 10 minutes to allow blood to flow away from your feet and reduce swelling.
- Get a foot massage. There are no hard and fast foot massage rules, just rub gently with your thumbs.
