The extra bits...(Under construction).

Blog walking ......

     Following my previous post the seeds of an idea have germinated (must be spring) and I'm currently trying to set up something.

     Blogging connects folk from all around this planet and draws like minded folk together, friendships are forged, advice is given and we get to share our lives and interests. Yet the distances involved preclude us from actually doing stuff together, or do they?

      The idea is simpley this...many of my fellow bloggers here enjoy walking, nature, and the connections they have. So I intend starting another blog where at set times, say a weekend, folk all go for a walk in their part of the world and then share pictures and words of their adventures. In affect we'd all be walking together and be part of a virtual walking group. Hopefully it will encourage us to get 'out there' more often and also feel that we are part of something to share. There are many reasons for walking for me it's where I can let my mind heel from the Dog and also help my decrepit body become a tad stronger. 

     So there you have it....Blog Walking.... Ta daaa, I hope I'm not the only one 'out there' when the time comes :(

Till the next time, take care,

John

  2. A great idea although we don't go far on our weekend walks but might do one every now and then for this.

    1. Thank you DC, it's not the distance that counts just the fact 'we' will be out there walking together.

  4. "Hear hear." I second that. Great idea John to motivate us all to walk. How far? Could I suggest 4 miles?

    1. Thanks Dave, distance doesn't matter I think, just getting folk walking 'together' and sharing adventures.

  5. Sounds like a neat idea john, but it would be a bit difficult even opening the door here right now. Temps are about 10 Celsius below zero, we have 6 feet of snow on the ground and it is blowing sideways at 45 mph.

    1. That might make it a tad interesting Mr. Silvius....where's your sense of adventure man?

  6. Sounds a lovely idea :o) You can get a 'link' box (have a look at Lucy Corriander's Loose and Leafy blog for her tree following project) which would let everyone write their walk up on their own blog but link it to yours so we can all see what everyone else has been up to.

    Forgot to mention on your last post that Turmeric is also an anti-inflammatory. You can get it in capsule form in health shops and I cook with the dried version a lot- has a nice, earthy taste.

  8. Since I do most of my physical movement (fishing and so forth) during the week, can I get an exemption?

    1. Thank you Jane... Longer days and warmer weather, at least in the northern hemisphere, should help to encourage folk to join in.

  15. Does wobbling to the bird feeder and back because of the 3 layers of clothes in -35C temperatures count? He he. I'm sure I can make the time to join in. Awesome idea John!
