Join us this Saturday, June 8th, for the Bush Homes walk. We will meet at 7:00 a.m., at the Windlands Park parking lot. Saturday should be pretty hot so we are getting an early start.
If you are new in town, Windlands Park can be reached by turning west off of “A” Street onto Dengar. Drive past the Girl Scout and Junior League buildings, and keep going to the park entrance.
The “Bush Homes” walk is our 10km/5km AVA Event #112694 2019/Y1881. The trail is on asphalt, concrete trails, sidewalks, and city streets where you will pass many city parks, and see the childhood home of President G.W. Bush and the G.W. and Laura Bush home at located 405 W. Golf Course Road. You’ll see many beautiful homes along the way, and you’ll also get a wonderful view of the downtown Midland skyline!
Please bring your $3.00, record booklets, and water. New members please bring your starter packets, which have the free coupon. We’ll show you how to stamp the Events and Distance booklets.
After the walk some of us like to gather for coffee or burrito, if you would like to visit for a while.
See you Saturday!

There will be a walk on Saturday, April 6, in Sterling City. Plans are to meet behind the Jumburrito at Midland Mall at 8:00 a.m. in order to carpool/caravan. It will take approximately 68 minutes to drive to Sterling City.
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!!
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).
