This is so validating to all of my efforts that I have put into working on this website and my work in pubicity with the American Volkssport Association. I had to share this.
I also want to say thank you to everyone who continues to walk, hike, and write about walking. Without your fascinating websites,books, videos, histories etc... my site would not exist.
My goal continues to be to advocate for safe walkable neighborhoods, and bring awareness that walking is truly a sport and an easy way to stay healthy and fit. And it is interesting and has its place in history.
I am an avid walker and hiker. My favorite is a long hike. I also enjoy taking off and going on a meandering walk for a few hours. I've hiked rim to rim in the Grand Canyon and I did 3 Burning Boot Walks on Vancouver Island.
