85: Nothing is particularly hard if you break it down into small jobs.

Johnny joined me on a quick (not-by-choice) walk in Sheraden. We parked in a shady spot in the middle of the Sheraden Park valley.

82: All the Small Things. Don’t even Blink.

On this cloudy day, I took a drive to Arlington. There was a section I hadn’t walked yet but I’d be lying if that was my only motivation. I really wanted breakfast-for-lunch from Eggs & Moore. It had rained during the night and into the morning but the rain stayed mostly away for my walk.

81: Treasure and Gator Hunting (Carrick)

I had two goals for today: to walk on the orphaned Vida Way and to see if there were anymore alligators waddling around Pittsburgh.

78: Big Dog, Big Jim’s, Big Rain

There is still so much of Greenfield to explore! I got to walk some of it today and even ventured into the new Hazelwood Green. I started out my walk in the South Side Flats on Sarah Street between S. 28th and S. 27th. The first thing I noticed was an old bakery that appears to be closed permanently. Looking in the windows it was easy to imagine what it would have been like when the display cases were filled and coffee poured out of the double pot Bunn-o-matic.

77: Closed Roads and Old Mines/Mills

East Carnegie and Oakwood. Two places I didn’t know existed let alone were a part of the city until I started walking it. I parked in Crafton and took a little trail that ran along the West Busway.

76: Little Walk on the Urban Prairie

Today I decided to tackle Fairywood as it is one of the westernmost neighborhoods and I had to get back home early to get Johnny off the bus for an early dismissal. I was supposed to meet a friend but he never showed. Alexis has a reputation among our group for showing up randomly all over the place.

75: A tree tried to murder me and I almost killed Amy. Again.

Goals for today included walking on French Street (Downtown) and finally making it up to Crawford-Roberts to walk more streets. Amy was able to come with me but I’m pretty sure she regretted that decision at the end.

74: Third Time’s a Charm

Orphan Streets. This is what I call streets that I’ve completely surrounded yet didn’t walk on. When it happens, the street name lights up my subconscious like a neon sign in a dark alley.

69: Spring Garden, Spring Hill-City View & East Allegheny

Unique Streets: 21 Miles Walked: 4.32 Street Names (italicized have been walked on another day): Spring Garden Avenue, Arcola Way, Seidle Street, Itin Street, Diana Place, Ives Way, Iona Street,…
