Just in case (cant tell from pictures), if you are wearing hiking boots spend the coin and get a proper pair of MX boots, starting off you are going to fall, put a foot down etc.
MX boots will offer a LOT more protection for you than any hiking books and can in many cases save an ankle or lower leg from injury that would not be prevented by hiking boots.
That said, congratulations and welcome to the forum, look forward to seeing you in DV in March.
