We have a nice sounding event coming up at Trinity Forest (a preserve in Dallas). Hope the rain waits until the afternoon.

Guess that is true enough. Hope we both have better luck next week.

I was going to do two 10k's today but got rained out. Guess weather can affect us no matter what part of the country.

Feb 28th - Didn't drive to the Volksmarch today. Weatherman was predicting icy roads and I thought I'd be smart and stay home. Hasn't warmed up here. It is 2pm and it is 33 degrees and misting rain. Bridges and overpasses still a mess.

We walked in Cleburne, TX today. It was 65 when we left home. It was 56 when we got to Cleburne and the wind had switched around to the North. The walk start was at a grocery store and luckily they had sweatshirts for sale! LOL

Never take Texas weather for granted.

When I do hikes and carry my Camelback hydropack, I don't use the Nordic poles. I used to use only one hiking (aka Trekking) pole but have found it pays to use two. Again, if I use both, my back doesn't complain as much after the hike.

Thanks for sharing. I always like walking along the water's edge. I've never tried Nordic poles but there are some people here that use them too.

On Sat. the 14th., I did a 10k Volkswalk at Anna Marie Island in Florida. It's on the coast. The walk was put on by the Suncoast Sandpiper Volkssport Club. I met other people from my Volksmarch Meeup.com group there. Weather cooperated, the Gulf and the bay area were beautiful, the beaches promising fun times in the future, the event well run, and I had a great time. I used my Nordic poles for most of the walk. I do notice when I use them, my back doesn't complain as much when I'm done.

So sorry you don't have a club in your area. If you want to get the record books they can be ordered directly from the AVA. www2.ava.org/newwalk.php . To find YRE events that can be walked at any time you go to the ava.org website and click on "Events", then "Search Events", enter your state in the drop down menu and it will give you the locations that you can walk at any time.

Hope this helps.

What's the best way to get started as an AVA member? We don't have a group on our area. I've done four of the AVA walks now just for fun. Iam so ready to do a walk.

Florida is a wonderful place. I did the AVA convention there in 2013. It was in the Orlando area and the walks were all very nice. Great weather.

Glad you found a group to ride with. Helps with the expenses. Happy Volksmarching!

Through a Meetup.com group, I'm doing a 10k Volksmarch walk tomorrow. It's about two hours from me but thanks to the Meetup group, I'll be able to get a ride. The walk is in the New Smyrna Beach, FL area. Part of it will be on the ocean. Weather should be in the low 70's. The sponsoring AVA club, Happy Wanderers, has this a year long event AND an every Sunday group walk. It will be my first AVA group walk. I'm looking forward to it.

This will be my fourth walk for credit. I had a friend visiting from up north this past month. Along with my husband, we did a AVA walk in a Florida State Park. Given the social nature, I didn't stop & register. I wouldn't mind doing that walk again. The area, Wekiva Springs State Park, includes a viewing area of the springs. Florida springs are a real treasure.

We had dry but cold weather. Only 31 intrepid souls showed up to walk. Here are some pictures from the event.

I sincerely hope the weather cooperates. My plans tomorrow is a six mile hike with my local Florida Trail chapter. Not a Volkswalk but definitely exercise and a great way to start the new year.

We are in Fredericksburg ready to walk in the New Year at Midnight. However the weather isn't cooperating. If we have the predicted ice storm they will cancel the walk.

Using my Nordic poles tomorrow for a 10k Volksmarch. I'm dong it with a local Meetup.com group. I'm the only one that uses poles for their events. I've signed up for another 10k (6.2 mile) event with them in Feb. It's at a location on the Atlantic Coast. We might see some whate while walking.

HAPPY NEW YEAR ALL!

Our weather has been unseasonably warm, but a cold front with rain (which we need badly) is headed our way.

Can y'all believe the gas prices! Get out and go while the prices are low!

It's interesting to see how the system is set up. Luckily, I was with one of the persons involved with monitoring that walk for the Orlando group. She's the one who introduced me to Volksmarching. She walked me through the sign in process.

So glad you got your starter packet in time! You could have used an insert card if you didn't have your books yet. I sometimes find myself at a YRE without my books. Insert card is a great option. They usually have one or two in the walk box for people like me.

Did my first 10k Volkswalk today. The area, Downtown Disney in Orlando FL, is under construction so had to deviate from instructions. Ended up walking more than 7 miles instead of 6.2. For over half the walk used my Nordic poles. I had to keep poles closer to me in crowded areas but worked better in crowds than I thought they would.

I got lucky. I got the starter packet from the AVA yesterday so I was able to log my walk.

Thought I'd stop by and see if anyone is here. Cold weather is fast approaching. It was only 39 degrees when we walked on Saturday in Cleburne, TX. Hope y'all are bundling up and getting in some miles.

The website for the 19th Annual convention is finally live.

So many walks so little time! The spirit is willing, but the body is weak. One a day is all I can manage (and enjoy). Wish I could do some YREs also while there, but don't see that happening.

Hope some of you can make the trip to the convention.

Headed out to a YRE in a state park this coming weekend. Does your club host events in state parks?

We had a wonderful vacation and I got three new states for the 50 state program. I only need one more and that is Rhode Island. Hope to get it next year to complete the book.

The event had good turn out in spite of the cold rain. A local club was showing a new route they plan to sanction next year. It is mostly on trails through green spaces between neighborhoods. It will be nice to have another choice for local YRE

It has been cold here, but we got a touch of spring for a week. It is supposed to get cold again next week. Glad you got in some nice walking even it you didn't collect a stamp!

Glad you are getting some nice walking weather. The news reported it had been cold in TX.

We went to California for 4 weeks. Lots of hiking but only 2 sanctioned walks in the area. It was very pleasant weather, but now we are back to 40 degrees and raining in WA...I think it is my least favorite weather.

Looking forward to the weekend when we get to walk down at A&M Campus.

Being a Christian isn't about religion. It's about a relationship with the One who made us. I'm so thankful to be one of His.

We had near 80 degrees here yesterday. Today it is supposed to be only 58 for the high. Just need some rain.

The inside Christmas decorations are down. It is too cold and windy to get outside and take those down. Hope everyone is getting in some events.

The end of the year is fast approaching bringing with it the Texas Volkssport Assn Memorial Event held to remember Texas Volkssporters who have died in 2013. Hopefully the number will be few. This event is held on Dec. 31 in Fredericksburg, TX which is AVA #1. The first club in America. Unfortunately this club has dwindled down to nothingness. I am very afraid that we may lose this club in 2014.......

Survived the ice storm. Our neighbors in DFW took a beating. Heard there were lots of tree damage and power outages. We've just been very cold here.

We are getting more rain here. Gentle rain this time. Hope it is soaking in and giving the trees the drink they need to stay alive. We lost a lot of trees in 2012. Hope y'all are getting in lots of Volksmarches before the weather gets really cold.

We are having lovely rain here! Our drought (at least for this year) has been busted. We are 5 inches ahead of our normal rainfall for the year and more is predicted. Had water running over my country road but they got out there yesterday and unplugged the culvert so now they just need to resurface the road that is full of pot holes. Hope y'all are doing well. Drop by and chat.

On this day in 1830 Old Ironsides was saved by a poem: Alarmed by a newspaper report that Congress was to have the USS Constitution (a.k.a. Old Ironsides) sent to a scrap yard, Oliver Wendell Homes dashed off a poem in protest. It stirred up national outrage and saved the ship which still floats today.

Had a great day. First we did the Volksmarching YRE in Navasota, TX then we planted a letterbox along the hike/bike trail. After that we started doing letterbox searches hitting several small towns on the way home. We attempted to find 9 boxes. We actually found 6 of them so we had a good day! Will post a blog with pictures later this evening.

Worked the start point for the walk at Dana Peak Park on Saturday. The walk was in conjunction with the semi-annual Texas Volkssport Assn meeting. Stayed for the meeting afterward and had an enjoyable time learning about the state organization.

Walked 10K in Waxahachie on Saturday and searched for 5 letterboxes along the route. Found three. Didn't look for one of them because of too much traffic along the hike/bike trail. One was missing.

Being a Christian isn't about religion. It's about a relationship with the One who made us. I'm so thankful to be one of His.

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13

Do not ask the Lord to guide your footstep, unless you are willing to move your feet.

God grant me the serenity to accept those I cannot change, to change the one I can,
and the wisdom to know itís me.

Been enjoying searching for letterboxing along or at least close to a YRE volksmarch. Makes a route I've done several time interesting again.
