New hiking boots seem tight - will they stretch with use?

I've bought a pair of what I assume to be reasonably good hiking boots for a long trek/challenge I'm doing at the end of August - 100km in 36 hours or so, through the Australian bush north of Sydney (bush = forest, national park). Trying them out, eg. on a 12km walk at the weekend, they're quite tight across the toes. If I keep wearing them (generally around the place, and on longer walks) will they stretch over time, or should I buy a better fitting pair while I still have time to break them in? [more inside]

Waterproof my surplus wool pants?

I recently bought some cheap ($20) army surplus wool pants to try out as winter rain & snow hiking pants. I took them out for a rainy Pac NW stroll and a sunny snow hike and they were comfortable but I was surprised by how soaked they got when they got water on them. (Granted I try to avoid getting them wet but stuff happens.) Like a lot of people I've been wearing a lot of wool and I consider it almost a miraculous fabric. I'm a bit disappointed in these pants. Should I waterproof/treat them? If so, how? [more inside]

The best way for a fully disabled, good sized male to go hiking with friends.

I've been a quadriplegic since the age of fifteen due to a diving accident. I live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest with some of the best trails in the world-- the Olympics, Cascades and National Rainforest, to name a few--in my backyard, but I've never been able to experience them. Can anyone help with a reasonably safe solution. I pictured a carrying device with two poles and a harness where two strong individuals rested the poles on their shoulders. Any engineers out there with some nifty designs or ideas. I am 6'2 and about 220 lbs in good shape and sturdy physique. I would love to join my friends for a hot brandy and stories around the campfire.
