Bataan Death March commemorative walk, from the LCSO firing range -to & back- from Cypress Lakes Subdivision, X3 – 27.2 miles.Total – 1954 miles to date.      We’ve all heard the axiom, “Once is a fluke, Twice is a coincidence, but Three times and it’s WTF’s goin’ on?” And […]

Help me Obi Wan Kenobi, you’re my only hope.

04/01/24 – Day 280 – Mile 1901 All’s quiet on the Eastern front (of Lowndes). It’s also flat and bristling with pines. Having completed walking that side of our parish, I now turn toward the north. I’ll start by exploring the length of Radar Site Rd at Moody Air Force Base….which brings me to the […]

DON’T FORGET TO WRITE HOME Day 272 / 1874 miles. I’ve been AWOL for the recent weeks, eschewing my writing for an attempt at video posts from the outposts. I attempted the change cause Kin Folk said “Jed, move away from there. Said video Reels is the place ya aughtta be. So I loaded up […]

A river runs through it.

01/13/24 – DAY 235 – MILE 1609 Today, I finished the northern East -to- West leg across the top of the county, crossing over the Withlacoochee and Little Rivers in the process. Peters, Cat, Beatty Mill, Franks, and Meeting House Branch Creeks were traversed as well. Tomorrow I’ll head South to the Withlacoochee River again […]

Life is a Highway

1/09/24 – Day 232 – 1587 miles I’ve missed you. I took the month of December off (Hey! Its Christmas dammit! Cut me some slack will ya). Actually, it feels good to be plodding the byways again, or to paraphrase Van Morrison “Hark now hear the walker’s cryWalk the street and feel the skyLet my […]

Well, I’m Back in the Saddle Again

11/16/23 / Day 225 / Mile 1533 To be more accurate, I’m Back in the HOKA’s again. After a short sabbatical to mend a fence, (which I never did) I decided to stop the lollygagging and get back out there. As dad used to say, “Those roads aren’t gonna walk themselves ya know”. (He never […]

The MYSTIC PORTAL Awaits

Day 218 / 1492 Miles Today I reached another waypoint in my journey (one even Christopher Columbus would take note of) which is that, save for one ellipsoid portion in the heart of the city, I will have completed walking all (and more than) I had initially set out to do. As mentioned, this quest […]

A Squirrel’s Tale

Day 209 / 1428 Miles When walking, I try to stay heads up to take in everything the day’s path has to display. But, not keeping track of the ground before your feet can result in your own cann on the pavement, and with no one else to blame. (There’s a reason they call it […]

It’s all plaid to me.

DAY 203 / 1381 MILES One question on the list from my post “So Many Questions Grasshopper” concerns, Most interesting vs. Most boring. Specifically, where is a walker most likely to encounter the unexpected just around the next curve? Although I haven’t arrived at the station yet, I now realize the answer is clear. Having […]

Making the Grade

DAY 196 / 1337 MILES Our namesake, -Valle de Aosta- I had heard, (and always accepted because it sounded plausible), meant “Valle(y) of Beauty”. Expending about as much energy as it takes to blink, I “researched” and found that Aoste actually means Rome of the Alps. It would follow then that our South Georgia version […]
