Winter Rambles for Seniors and Other Free Spirits
with Sam Horine, RSU 54/MSAD 54 Adult and Community Education
"It's a great art to saunter!" Henry David Thoreau, 1817-1862 American poet, essagyist, and naturalist
Walking is a good exercise, it promotes good converstations with fellow walkers and the opportunity to observe one's surroundings. so , for those with some free time, I'm organizing a couple of 'rambles' a month – starting in October and ending in March. Most 'rambles' will be in rural areas with a few, in urban settings.
All will be within a 40 miles radius of Skowhegan.
• January 'ramble' will embrace the cold - and maybe stop along the way for a hot bowl of soup.
• February 'ramble' will bring out the snowshoes.
• March 'ramble' hwill begin to say goodbye to winter and look for signs of spring.
While most 'rambles' will take place in the afternoon, some will start earlier in the day. At times , we may want to car pool to a starting point.
Good walking shoes, warm comfortable clothing, and the yen to explore are the only essential elements needed.
We will meet every 1st and 3rd Tuesday starting January 15!
