Hey! Thanks for the quick reply. I prefer walking outside too, but feel safer indoors at the Mall. Recently bought an MP3 player (years behind, I know), loaded some energizing tunes, and off I go. Due to car problems lately, the bus is my only transportation. Guess what, buses don't go to the Forest Preserves. Keep on keepn' on....good luck in your weight loss journey. I do get some walking in on my journey to the bus every day. It's a good thing!

Hi! I'm in the Gurnee area though I am not much on walking at Gurnee Mills. HA! I love to walk outdoors if possible (hoping this nice weather hangs around - ready for winter to be done!)

There are some great walking paths in the Lake County Forest Preserves.

Good Luck with your Walking Group!

Welcome to Spark I'm sure you will find some northerners there. I am too far a way, but wish you luck.

Any Gurnee, Wadsworth, Grayslake, or Antioch SparksPeople? I would like to start a walking PM group at Gurnee Mills. Also, might want to learn pole walking techniques. Anyone interested?
