Walkers

Yes, I enjoy my walks.

It's windy and a tiny bit chilly. I went out for a walk to enjoy the sun though. While out on my walk, I had two complete strangers pull over and ask if I needed a lift and where I was going.

They were not to pleased when I said no and I had no idea where I was going. I wasn't going anywhere but a walk. I knew at any point I could turn around and find my way home.

Part of me thinks it is nice they see someone out walking so they want to offer a lift. Yet the other part of me gets annoyed, like walking is a horrible thing to do.


Any other walkers have this issue? If you drive do you offer people rides?

I was a niave teenager when I moved to a big city.  I would walk to work and people would be pulling over or motioning to me all the time.  I mentioned it to my coworkers and found out that I was walking a known prostitution route.  I was so embarrassed.

That made me giggle. I don't think this route would be used for prositution. It's an actually "trail" that runs through the city used for runners and bikers. It runs past a lot of main roads though.

Should I change it to state non-zombies?

I was hoping for zombie :(

Never been an issue but I would just take it for what it is...a nice gesture.

I thought this was going to be about The Walking Dead. Lol.

I walk, though. I normally just walk around my neighborhood. It's a decent size, so I can get some good distance out of it, but nothing too major. No one offers me a ride though, a lot of my neighbors walk so it's not at all uncommon to see.

I do a lot of cardio at home on my elliptical and my stationary bike, so I mostly walk to help loosen up my muscles.
