suburban hike = walk around the block?!?

Did that the other day again instead of driving to the store. Was kind of fun but is more tiring than actually running it.. In fact the other day my neighbor was telling me how he always sees me walking or running somewhere. I said; why drive and waste gas if you can walk? Especially in this weather..

Blows me away how some people still drive places that are not even a quarter mile away. I'm not a greenie but it just makes sense. Even with cheap gasoline.. However to each his own I suppose.

That's pretty much it Amiee. I have to break out of the classroom sometimes.

You're right Steve, the less time I can spend in my car, the happier I am. Except for long road trips, which I love.
