There are several cities that have Year Round Events if you don't mind walking on your own. This is the way they work.

The YRE Events have a "walk box" at a place of business. The start/finish is self-service. Please wait until the clerk has taken care of their customers before asking for the box. Take the box to an out of the way location. Open the box, read the instruction sheet, complete the registration form, and sign the waiver. Take a start card and directions for the walk. Follow the directions/and or the map correctly and you should be back at the start in less than three hours. You should time your walk so as to finish before dark. Take a pencil with you and mark your start card with the answers to the checkpoint questions. Place your start cards in one of the envelopes provided. Leave the envelope in the marked folder in the box or if they have it addressed you can put a stamp on it and mail it to them.

You can do these walks for free. Go to www.ava.org and click on
"Events", choose your state and it will give you a list of cities that has these events.

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.

All I know about the Volksmarch is that it happens once a year. I have done it twice. It is the only event I know of in the state, however that doesn't really mean anything.

I am not skilled to understand what GOD has willed what GOD has planned I only know at his right hand stands one who is my SAVIOR

Yes this is volksmarching. Some of the clubs thought they should change the term to volkswalking because they thought the general public would recognize it better than volksmarching. Have you ever done the Volksmarch in conjunction with the Prairie Rose Games?

Does the club up there have snow shoe or cross country skiing events?

It is even cold here in Central Texas today! LOL Yes, most Texans are wimpy about cold weather. They think 32 is "really cold". I'm not a native Texan, but I've been here long enough to get acclimated to the warmer weather too.

Is this related to Volksmarch? They have one here annually in conjunction with the prairie rose games. I have not seen the term volkswalking before. I looked at the link but not in detail. It's still a little nippy for this sort of thing around here right now.
