Take a Hike

If you would like to get out for a stroll and would to meet some others who like to do the same check out the American Volkssport Association. This group sponsors walks in all 50 States, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands. There are sister programs in Canada and International.

Several years ago I was introduced to Volksmarching and I love the one I went on. It was held at a local winery on a beautiful day. We strolled through the vineyard and adjacent woods and then enjoyed a barbeque afterwards. The winery was also offering wine tours and samplings.

According to Wickipedia, Volksmarching is from the German word Volksmarsch which means “people’s march”. The Volksports events are people taking walks together. Most of the walks are about 6 miles long and can be on going self guided walks or special events.
