Hi. I am in Texas, not Bend but I know there is a walking club in your area if you are interested in participating in local events on a regular basis. I do similar walks every weekend. We are not "fund raising" clubs, we are for fun, fitness and fellowship. Our clubs are family oriented and most events are baby stroller, and pet friendly. Our object is to keep a record book and collect a stamp for each event that we do. I've done over a 1000 of the 10K events in Texas and in 46 other states. Here is the information on your local club:

Club Name: Ponderosa Pathfinders
Address: 110 SE 3rd AVE
City: Battle Ground
State: WA
Zip: 98604
Contact: Becky Forsythe
Phone: (360) 281-8429
Website: www.walkquest.org
Email: rgforsythe@usa.net

Hey Don,

Gees, if I took any longer to welcome you to the team you could have planted, harvested, roasted, & ground a years worth of coffee.
Anyhow, I can see you have put the SparkyTools & SparkySupport to good use. Your ticker is looking fantastic. Keep it up, buddy.

Welcome fellow Junkie--Cyndi

Hi Don, thanks for your visit to my Spark page. I, too, am studying in the area of systems/IT: my goal is project management certification. Your dogs are beautiful, I"ll bet they love to run on the trails with you. Joni

Hi Don,
It's nice to meet another Bend/Redmond person! You should try the geocaching. We have incredible ones around here. It's a great way to find all the caves.

You have my absolute favorite dog. A red Healer. I've had many healers over the years. Blessings on your goals. Have a great ski season. Have you been up yet? I heard it was pretty rocky at thanksgiving.

Hi Don, Welcome to Veggie fitness & nutrition. I've been vegan since 1977, mostly raw for the past couple of years. My son is snowboarding as I type,although I didn't go up with them this weekend. Living in Colorado, we get season passes and wear out paths going up almost every weekend. I have to admit I generally snow shoe while they snow board. I'm a skier and never caught the snow board bug like they have. My sister raises Blue Heelers. She wanted to give me one for a present but with nine parrots, I was certain that would not be a good mix. Still, they are wonderful, intelligent dogs.
