Volkswalking in Skiatook

Today was the date of the Tulsa Walking Club's October walk. It was held in Skiatook. The path was a rail-to-trail conversion of the Osage Railroad. I was told it runs all the way from Tulsa to Bartlesville. October is National Volkssport Month. To commemorate the event, the AVA provides a patch which can be obtained for $3 from local clubs. I bought a patch, which is orange in color and depicts pumpkins, a basket of apples, eggplants, etc. It is 3 X 4.5 inches in size.

The walk started in Skiatook and went south on the trail for half the distance. There we met the checkpoint person who punched our start cards. Then we walked back to the start point. The total distance walked was five kilometers. Along the way we met some friends we had not seen in a while.

At 2 pm, we were at the S-B Library for the HAT meeting. There were only five of us there today. When we got back home, I fixed a pot of chili. We watched Moyers while we ate dinner. As soon as I finish this blog, we will watch the NBC Nightly News on the Internet.
