One of my favorite places to walk barefoot at is Fort Des Moines Park. The walking trail was brand new and I thought it was great to check out. I experienced a lot of sensations while walking barefoot on the trail. I felt rocks, tree bark, and a whole lot more. I went there when a part of the trail had a lot of mud on it. I could feel the mud sift between my toes and that was the best experience of my barefoot life but the next time I went there was a real treat. This was definitely one of my favorite times I went on a barefoot walk. It was June 20, 2014 at Fort Des Moines Park. It had rained overnight and there was a lot of mud on the trail and I never had the feeling of walking on a trail that was entirely muddy so this was a perfect opportunity. I drove out to Fort Des Moines Park and went on the walking trail was wet and squishy with mud as I predicted. It...
We met up at 07h00 at Venus Car Park on a deliciously cool morning, by Singapore standards that is. And then hiked 75 minutes into the jungle. Everyone was sporting Luna or Xero sandals. I wanted to go barefoot but had bought a new pair of Xero Trek's so had to see how they performed. (Very comfortable, I must say, and I did not notice them at all)
Justin was our very able coach/guide for the day and we were joined by Darra, Thomas and Su Yi.
L’idée a été de faire une promenade sans protection aux pieds, dans le but de redécouvrir des sensations oubliées : les différentes textures du sol (sable, granit, herbes, graviers, terre, …), les températures, le vent, le soleil, l’eau….
Took my longest hike so far at Pawtuckaway State Park in New Hampshire on
Saturday. It was a mixed bag, but I'm proud of my accomplishment. The hike up South Peak was relatively easy. The trail was very kind on the feet and on the way up there was plenty of big rocks for the kids to climb and explore.
We took a different route on the way down. As we descended, I would often think how I would be hiking this differently in shoes and how much faster I could be going. How much easier it would be and I was missing my shoes. Not that I'm a speed hiker, I'm just a slow plodder, it still would be faster with shoes. At one point I did stub a toe, but no damage done. Eventually it leveled out to a rolling trail and thoughts of shoes faded, for a short time.
After a little while we came to a gravel road, Round Pond Trail. This road / trail presented a...
