2018 Big Walk Announcement

This year, I’m trying to juggle a few things (for one I’m on the ballot for State Rep for Merrimack, NH) but I still wanted to get another big walk in.

Unfortunately, my regular walking buddy – Griffin is bowing out this year.

But I’m not.

So on Friday September 28th, I’ll be walking from the tip of Cape Cod to the base (Sagamore Bridge.)

It’s about 68 miles and I plan to do it in 5 days which means about 14 miles a day. My knees are bothering me a little more this year  (damn that age thing, but I’ll keep doing big walks for as long as I can) but as the Cape is relatively flat (compared to New Hampshire) and the weather should be cooler, I think it’s totally doable.

Although I may have a few people joining me on various days, for the most part I’ll be walking alone.

Not in the least bit worried. I have a support team who will be keeping an eye on me and I have found the people of Cape Cod to be nothing but supportive and friendly. I plan to bring notebooks  – I’ll take tons of photos.

And I plan to talk to many in order to hear what their stories are.

So that I can share them with you.

As an aside, when I entered my start and stopping destinations in Google Maps, this is the route it gave me for my walk.

I’m good, but I’m not that good. 🙂

  1. What impresses me the most is that you will do that water crossing in 8 hours and 4 minutes! I guess if you are walking on water, you better move quick or you’ll sink….

  2. In all my walking hither and yon, I have determined that I too can not accomplish the “walking on water” thing. Best to be kept to the “professionals”. Hike on Sista!!
