Comanche, TX

Monday, May 30, 2011

We went up to Comanche to deliver the walk box to the Chamber of Commerce. That is where everyone needs to go to register for the walk. We were driving around in the park and saw a tree stump carving.

I never even noticed it when I was laying out the walk route. Not going to redo the route to walk people past it, but I thought it was pretty neat.

The Comanche walk is a seasonal and the walk box will be there from June 1 thru Sept 30.

Memorial Day Trike Rally

Thursday, May 26, 2011

We were loading up our trike on a trailer to take it up to Fort Richardson State Park for a the trike rally and it got high centered and ripped a hole in the oil pan. So we will be going without our ride.


The above picture of it was taken during the Veteran's day parade. I need to take a new picture of it.

Anyway if you like "strange" machines you can visit my website photo album page for 2010 of the Memorial Day Trike Rally.

Comanche 10K - Another Worker's Walk

Saturday, May 21, 2011

I had Carol and Ed take my set of directions and try to walk the route. We found some errors and some things that could just be improved, so I will be re-working the instructions.



This is the back of the Museum. It wasn't open yet when we passed by. It looks interesting though.



We were surprised by this small concert in the park. I think we surprised them too. We were on the nature trail that passed directly behind them.



This is an old bridge that we are going to add to the walk route.

It was 84 degrees and very humid when we finished.

  


UT Arlington Volksmarch

Sunday, May 15, 2011

We walked on Saturday at Arlington, TX. It was a 10K and it included parts of the UTA campus.



We walk route took us into Nedderman Hall where there is a memorial to Kalpana Chawla, who was a UTA graduate. She and 6 other astronauts died when Columbia Space Shuttle exploded on re-entry to the earth's atmosphere.



The campus is bordered by a creek and there was a really nice walkaway across it.



It was a little chilly, but it was a great day to get out and walk.

10K at Lake Bastrop

Saturday, May 07, 2011

The Colorado River Walkers out of Austin hosted this event at Lake Bastrop. This was a nice area I have never visited before.



We had great weather, overcast and cool when we started. It was 76 when we finished. There were lots of bridges including this pontoon bridge.



The trail was well marked and easy to follow.
