  • I don't because I don't trust young drivers in my town - more like DH doens't and won't let me go walking after dark. We live in a tiny town so I'm not afraid to go, but I also have to work too early in the morning to go out after dark.

  • Na going out in the late evenings is something I would do only I have some company( I would take my son along). You can start your walks in the early morning when a few more people would be there...

  • I have done walks after dark with a girlfriend or LP. I wouldn't like the idea of doing it alone. We also have a nicely lit, highly trafficked, but walkable "main street" that I would feel more comfortable going down on my own due to the volume of "witnesses" to deter any criminals.

  • Its the only way I can truly enjoy my walk; I dont like people to watch me, especially when I'm power walking (whew!). I am extremely careful, though, making sure to arm myself with a concealable weapon, my cell, & a mean mug that says: try me, & it'll be the last thing you ever thought about doing..."
