My father-in-law (R.I.P.) had many cool things but some of the best are his Nordic Walking Poles. I couldn’t figure them out at first when I was down visiting but he said one of his neighbors gave them to him when he started falling down. I have claimed the poles as my own and am going to go on a crusade to drive my children crazy by cross country walking all around the neighborhood.
They have already been warned that too much protest will force me to invest in a complete outfit and that will not be pretty. I will get a picture of myself marching around with them and maybe some live action video. Search for this nonsense and you get exposed to a whole walking with poles subculture and a lot of these folks love to rock the fanny pack. If you live in my neighborhood watch for an enormous man thundering past with a blur of pole or dragging them on the ground depending when exactly I cross your path.
