Walkabout Path

Walkabout Path

Walkabout Path  Every so often, someone will ask me about my nightly walkabout paths.  Although I would like to walk every night, sometimes my schedule gets in the way so they are not every night.  Still, the paths can traverse neighborhoods, forests, grasslands, nature paths, and even no paths.  This image shows a path with cut grass along a waterway.  Notice the walker must duck under the tree branch to stay on the path.

The Old Farm  Last week, on my way back home, I was flying close to my parent’s old farm so I decide to fly over.  The farm is still pretty much like it was when I was a kid.  A couple of out buildings have been added, but the house, barn, crib, and chicken house are still there.  Looks really good from 5,500 feet!

Walkabout Path  Folks sometimes ask about my walkabout trails.  This wooded path begins in about a mile’s walk from my front door.  It wanders through the woods, over streams, and across local roads.  The 2 track looks lightly used; perhaps by forest preserve jeeps.  The 2 track is not open for general use.  Besides, only foot bridges go over the streams.
