I guess it's different now but when I was young I never wore shoes in the summer and I grew up in the country, around chickens, pigs, cows, all outside with me. I never thought much about it besides I didn't eat with my feet. I still don't like to wear shoes but most retailers will not let you in without shoes on. Even in winter I hate to wear shoes

Same here- I grew up barefoot and still greatly prefer it. As do my kids.

But, we do have shoe rules- and that includes parking lots and campsites. I've seen too much ugly on those grounds to not worry about an injury.

I also was raised on a farm. I was always bare foot, drank from a garden hose and ate peanuts but I never had a video game! Thanks mom and dad!

I too grew up running around barefoot on horse farms and around the neighborhood as well as drinking from garden hoses. That said today is a different world. There could be used needles, broken glass etc in a parking lot and yes the truck stops reek of urine. My daughter wears shoes at these and in public bathrooms. As a nurse, I think of hepatitis and many other bad things she could get barefoot in higher risk areas. She can go barefoot on a campsite (after we policed it) and we do let her take shoes off on most playgrounds if she wants.

we take shoes off entering the MH (bus box at the door) so we aren't tracking that filth inside.

Yep! Shoes were for school and going to town(maybe). If I didn't outgrow them I better not destroy them!

And to this day my Bride shakes her head about my running around barefoot. I just tell her "Hey you can take the kid out of Florida but you cant take the Florida out of the kid"
