So the weather here is getting colder and getting out there is getting harder. A couple of weeks ago there were no bare sidewalks around here but only slippery snow and ice-covered sidewalks of doom. I don’t walk on the country roads when the shoulders are sharing space with a two-foot-high snowbank. That snow is pretty much gone now but, now that we are heading into winter, the cold is something I need to prepare for when walking. I usually try to bundle up in layers.
I did get a fun walk in last week. I didn’t have time to drive 20 minutes to get to a street I haven’t walked on yet but still had to do my 10 miles. I decided to take some shorter walks and to try to make my walk a little bit entertaining for myself. So I tried GPS Art.
I will confess that I wasn’t completely happy about how the ‘n’ turned out. I think I will need to incorporate some of Hamilton’s alleyways into my walk to create the proper effect. Either that or wander through people’s back yards and hop fences – which ain’t gonna happen.
I will probably try to figure out how to do some more of these. A friend told me I should write out the words of one of my short stories. Ha.
