Walking outside is the shit. It's good exercise, but it's also a great way to see new things, or put things you might otherwise take for granted into perspective. Walking around in towns can lead you to new stores or interesting roads (as long as you're smart enough to stay out of the wrong neighborhoods,) parks are a good touch of nature for people without access to any forestry within walking distance, and for the more intrepid there's full fledged hikes out into the wilderness (or just along roads through it, that works just as well.)

Do you walk much? How much? Where do you like to go? Have you discovered any neat places walking?

I try to walk every day. I like to walk around town, but the hours I walk my douche bag neighbor gets pissed, even when I'm just quietly walking along. He likes to think he's president of the street or some crap.

Ideally I'd always prefer to walk outside of town, but I'm about as close to the heart of the city as it gets. There's a lot of trees and mini parks around though, so it's cool enough.

A lot of the time I don't make it outside, whenever I know my stupid neighbor is on the prowl for people to bitch at. But I have a treadmill in range of a TV and plenty of nature documentaries, so that works.

On that subject, and more related to the topic itself, how do you feel about nature, like just... Being out in the woods, or watching nature shows, or hell, I'd reach as far as natural areas in games?

I love it, hearing nothing but animals, the twigs under your feet, and a running stream. Seriousky, not much works as well to help relieve stress, or help put thoughts or problems into perspective. I do listen to music and generally have noise and a lot of stressors and things going on with how I conduct my time, and having something like a leisurely hike to wind it down with does a lot for my sanity.

So, what are your thoughts, dottle? Been a while since we took discussions to a new place.

Walking is a great thing, and walking barefoot is quite possibly one of the greatest things. The town I'm in right now is built on a series of awkward hills with shitty sidewalks, but there are a lot of nature areas around here where one can go and take a stroll.

The valleys in Skyrim are really fucking awesome for the reason that you can almost get that "nice bright day in pleasantly foliaged country" feel.

This thread contains everything I hate. Nature and exercise.

The only nature I'm really into is the ocean/water and I can't really walk there. I guess walking on a beach can be good (assuming it's a nice beach and not covered in needles and shit) but since I live nowhere near one, that's a no go.

I do sometimes walk to the post office since it's like 5 minutes away on foot, but that's about it.

It's a mystical place where the air is not stagnant, light is all around, and life still exists.

If there were no mosquitos I'd be outside constantly. It's literally like (god of your choice) is punishing me. I went from being inside most of the time back home, where there's lawns, and trees, and plants, and the most basic of wildlife (birds, squirrels, bunnies) to this shithole, where there is LITERALLY NO FUCKING GRASS FOR MILES, you see maybe one squirrel a month, and the only regular wildlife you see are pigeons who eat whatever people throw at them.

...maybe I found the source of my depression.

I like nature in contained, small increments. Pennsylvanias...theres too much farmland.

And it's not land, you can't go on there or you're trespassing. So its just this vast expanse thats accomplishing nothing I can see (I don't watch the harvesting of hay or whatever goes on there)

Nerd answer: I live in Gettysburg and love walking around the battlefield (national park), sometimes I take my dog for walks there. I like physically walking the terrain of the battle and factoring that into my understanding. Also its just a good place to walk.
