Catron County, New Mexico has about 400 miles of paved road, and we're planning to walk every mile of it ... eventually ...

And speaking of Spike, here are her shoes - she's more than halfway done walking the streets of Woy Woy. Posted by Picasa

Fran Corcoran completes Minneapolis walk

Fran finished - walked over a thousand miles, explored every nook and cranny of her city! Spike has collected every link she could find to this amazing accomplishment - click on the Spikebot Weekly link at the right to find them.

If I could figure out how to lift a photo from a .pdf document and save it as a .jpeg image, I'd post a picture of Fran's shoes, but all my efforts so far have come to naught. Faster to link you to the current edition of a publication called the Messenger. Then you can click on the August edition, which has a picture of Fran's shoes, and two pictures of Fran, and a lovely feature article of her walk - this might be the only link to an article about Fran's walk that Spike doesn't have at her site.

These are Caleb's shoes - leather Prada loafers, I believe - and I lifted this picture off his NYC Walk website (link to the right.) Posted by Picasa

Any day now

If you've checked in expecting to see anything about walking, Catron county, or any of the county's various flora and fauna in the last couple of months, my sincerest apologies. Summer heat, gas prices, 4-H projects and various and sundry other small things have gotten in the way of walking and picture taking and posting to this blog.

Walking will resume somewhere around the first of October - my walking partner is chomping at the bit and raring to go, and while I might be able to delay a while longer, I will not be able to delay indefinitely.

Complaining of the heat seems kind of wimpy, when I consider the woman who is walking all the streets ofMcKinney, TX in 102 degree heat with small children - I think the woman deserves a medal for even contemplating it, and it makes me ashamed to be hiding in my cool dark house like a vampire, afraid of a little summer sun.

In the meantime, I am starting to collect pictures of my fellow walkers' shoes. If you are walking or have walked an entire neighborhood, city, county, peninsula, etc., and you are willing to share a picture of your walking shoes, please let me know!
