Just plan on sitting in your easy chair over a few nights afterwards in order to re-fluff the down filling.
I have a 40+ year old Holubar down bag (remember that brand from Colorado?) that has been through this routine many times.
I don't know that my boots "suck". They are Altama desert combat boots, not cheap WalMart boots. They did fine on 3 day thesis trips up and down cactus-covered hills in North-Central Texas and I've gone ankle deep in bogs with them and never got my feet wet. I never had the ankle pain but it was a lot of start and stop, not non-stop. I assumed it was the weight of the boots but maybe its something else.
