Now For My Next Trick...WALKING!

Grab your bear can or camp chair, kick your feet up and chew the fat about anything Sierra Nevada related that doesn't quite fit in any of the other forums. Within reason, (and the HST rules and guidelines) this is also an anything goes forum. Tell stories, discuss wilderness issues, music, or whatever else the High Sierra stirs up in your mind.

Now For My Next Trick...WALKING!

Postby Hikin Mike » Sun Jun 22, 2008 3:18 pm

Went out for a few hours last night at Lake Yosemite (no not Yosemite NP). Had my camera...as usual...so I asked my wife to take a 'snapshot' of me standing. I've been 'walking' at home for about two months, but I finally got a picture. I haven't walked in almost 2 years, it was a nice change! Now I need to lose 30-40 lbs... :eek:

I'm a leg man, but, those don't do much for me.:) Glad to hear you can and are getting out again.
Piece of cake.
