Have not gone outside for a walk since last fall. Will go when the snow and ice is gone, afraid of falling. As far as wildlife we hear the coyotes most nights and see the odd one going across the fields. Lately have been watching a couple of porcupines, they are very interesting to watch. This week the temp. has gone up and snow is melting so it souldn't be long before we see the spring birds.

Am feeling nostalgic for the days when 'meltdown' was a good thing.

I walked back from my parking my car yesterday and saw a crow and a seagull fighting over possession of a discarded chip bag by the garbage bin. I was betting on the seagull!

Now that I will be walking more, I realized there is no where to walk to really--towns are too far away!! I'm only walking about a mile lately, the most I ever walked was for a fund raiser, that was 12 miles.

The birds sure are peeping lately. I wonder when the hummingbirds will be coming through this spring?

This might belong in the Venting thread, but when I take my dog for a walk I see litter, trash, and some things I just can't figure out how they got there -- a shirt? I have one of those 'grabber' things and occasionally make a trip without doggie and pick up stuff. It's appalling how people just toss things out their car windows, and kind of spoils the walk.

Are you retired or do you drive to town every day?

I use the local high school track at night, it's lit and out of traffic. My neighborhood has no streetlights. I also found out the outside perimeter of the hospital grounds and my facility is 1/2 mile. I walk that 3 times a day when I'm at work.

I've really stopped walking for distance, but plan for time...30 minutes out and 30 minutes back...I bet you find yourself walking farther in that amount of time.

But the next walk will be cleaner. I could do this...sounds like a good thing.

Hey Fiona, my car was recently wrecked, have no car, so I'll be walking more. Unintended consequence in life. I'm not retired, looking for a job in my field.
I go to town every month or so when necessary, milk, eggs, fruit, veggies, meats--stock up. I don't care much for shopping, it is a chore to save money.
I agree, walking for time is better than for distance. They (the one's that know) say that walking more than once a day is better because it keeps your metabolism up for more of the day.
Oh and thank you to those of you picking up trash on the sides of the roads to keep our country cleaner, it's a good deed.

I can't walk 3 blocks from my house without seeing lots of Burrowing Owls hanging around their nests. I haven't seen any babies learning to fly yet this year, but it's still early
