Without a Paddle by Robert E. Petras

Pender recalled a Chinese proverb: “The journey of 1000 miles starts with a single pair of Nikes.” He was wearing Reeboks, and they wouldn’t do much good, either, capsized in a lake, five miles from the nearest shore.

“Should have worn deck shoes,” he thought, one mile later, drowning.
