Recently people have been joining me on my Sunday Walks in Downtown Albany. Typically, I walk in Albany when I'm scheduled as a tour guide on the USS Slater (DE Docent). A slide show and a map are detailed at this blog entry. The USS Slater is now open. I plan on walking in Albany on Monday, Memorial Day, May 27. You can contact me at:

01/31/2012 - Monthly Log

In January, I logged 105 miles. Since I started logging my walks 19 months ago (April 2010), I logged 2,520 Miles.

I got sick during the month and it was difficult getting to my hundred mile goal.  Luckily the weather was very warm and very  clear. I had plently of opportunity to log miles at the end of the month.  During January it did snow but it didn't last.  I managed snowshoe twice.

My walks during the month included:
  • Oakwood Cemetery Loop (5.6 - 6.8 miles), 3 times
  • Neighborhood walks (1.7 - 4.2 miles), 15 times
  • Zim Smith Trail (2.5 - 4.6 miles), 2 times
  • Vischer Ferry Nature Preserve (4.5 miles), 3 times
  • At Home Video (2 Miles), 17 times
  • Saratoga Springs (2.5 Miles)
  • Clifton Park Center (1.5 - 3.0 miles), 2 times

01/31/2012 - Hyde Hall, Glimmerglass

This December, because of a lack of snow,  I had to reach into my archive of unpublished walks. Now it's January, still no snow!

Last July we walked around Glimmerglass State Park and toured Hyde Hall.
