This Saturday is the day! Join Will Campbell (WILL•I•AM) and me as we march down Western Ave. Here are the details:
Meet-up time: 6:30am
Meet-up/Start location: Fern Dell Park at Fern Dell Drive (the first street east of the Western/Los Feliz bend. There is some on-street parking in that area as well.)
End location: Friendship and Bogdanovich Park (click here and here for more details. They share a parking lot off of W. 9th street) We will find a spot in the park that has great views to end the day. (Click here for an interesting tidbit on who this Bogdnaovich was.)
A note on the end location. Will and I haven’t decided if we might end up two more miles down Western, at the ocean. We like to be flexible and see how we feel by then.
Duration: I’m calculating 9.5 to 10 hours. (The distance is approx. 26 miles, so divided by 3mph is 8.6 hours, but factor in rest stops, photo ops, blister protection rearrangement stops and the time adds up.)
Obviously, this will not be a round trip walk so plan for a pick up at the end. Even Will and I have not confirmed our own rides back, though I’m fairly certain our respective spouses may provide transport.
Along the way Will will be on Twitter so you can follow our progress from the comfort of your couch.
When I first posted about our little event a few of you readers/commenters said you might like to join in. We are counting on you because, as you know, the more, the merrier.
I’ll probably post one more time with last minute updates this week. But for now, go get some moleskin, make sure your shoes are broken in, charge those camera and phone batteries and we’ll see you Saturday morning. My one piece of advice: HYDRATE on Friday!
