Last Friday Johanna and I walked to work with my dad and Jenny. It's about a 7-mile trip (8 miles to Steve's office) and it took us about 2.5 hours. We've been walking about 2-3 miles every morning so it wasn't too bad. This is the 2nd time we've done it, and I think we'll make a habit of it (i.e. every other Friday) since it's a great route and there is a lot of interesting stuff to see along the way. The idea came about when Johanna suggested it one morning to cheer me up. I'm always up for a challenge, and it was still pretty early in the morning that day, so off we went.
The cool part is that I took pictures along the way with my iPhone, which automatically keeps track of the GPS location of each picture. I uploaded them to Picasa which created a map of all the pictures we took along the way and where it was taken, so now you can see the route we took. Click here to see the map of all the pictures.
