This walk was developed by the Texas County Walkers, in an effort to have at least one walk in each county.    If you already have your booklets stamped for the Texas County walks, then please bring $3.00.  For the rest of us, this is a non-credit walk and is free, free, free!

So, if you would like some fun, fitness, or fellowship this Saturday, then meet the group behind the Jumburrito. Or maybe it is on your lifetime bucket list to walk through the streets of Sterling City!!

3/16/19 – I-20 Wildlife Preserve Walk

A short walk has been planned for Saturday, March 16th, at the I-20 Wildlife Preserve.  We will be meeting at 9:00 a.m..

The address is 2201 S. Midland Drive.  Some say it’s a little tricky to find, so hopefully this link to a map will help!

The weather might be slightly cool, so bring your over-the-ear stocking caps and gloves!  Diane and Carolyn scoped out the Preserve and already spotted a red-winged blackbird and a coot (black with white bill?), lots of other water birds, and two friendly humans were working in the butterfly garden!

Hope to see you on Saturday (16th).

3/9/19 – Walk Scheduled for Big Spring State Park

bigspringparkLet’s go for a walk at the Big Spring State Park!

The Midland Walkabout AVA Club will be meeting at 8:00 a.m., on Saturday, March 9th (behind the Jumburrito at the Midland Mall for those interested in carpooling or driving in a caravan to the Big Spring State Park.
If you prefer to meet us at the park, we will gather around 8:45 a.m., in the parking lot at the  entrance just off of Highway 700.   This walk is AVA Event ID#: 112696 – 2019/#Y0471 – 10km/5km)

Saturday morning should start off chilly, but then it should be decent later on — not like the past couple of days.  After the 5K or 10K walk, a group will probably eat at one of Big Spring’s fine establishments before heading home.

Experienced members please bring your $3 and record booklets.  New members should bring their packets with the free coupons and we’ll help you figure out the rest.  Extra new member packets will be available if anyone would like to join.

Welcome to our newest member, Bob Hays!!

Big Spring State Park Info:   The State Park is contained within the city limits of Big Spring.   The walk itself is probably fine for most everyone in our group, but there is a hill which gets you up high enough to overlook the fine city of Big Spring!  The trail is not, however, suitable for wheelchairs, strollers, etc..   We will be walking on asphalt roads, dirt and gravel paths.   There are no entrance fees.  Restrooms are available in the park.  I will be bringing driving directions.
