Just awalkin' the dog
I feel a need to get on the board here. Just curious... Are any of y'all prone to going walkabout or make a habit of taking a walk? The dog owners among us, at least the less rural ones, might be more likely to have some standard time and route for daily walks.
If you do take walks, aside from the health aspects, what do you like most about walking? This is a relatively recent development for me after many years of ignoring it. I made a habit of occasionally wandering around or specifically taking long walks through wherever I happened to be in my earlier days, but ignored this in my more "stable" or sedentary years. I've just recently restarted (the past three years).
As for me, I enjoy reconnecting with the passing and changing seasons. The odors, the sounds, differences in daylight, weather, etc. I also enjoy playing a bit of "recon", noticing changes in the neighborhood and like to make a point of being outside in the dark and just listening and observing who and what comes and goes. One might, for example, never know there were skunks around unless one wanders outside at night.
Like I said, just curious about which of us are fans of walkabouts.
