A post from Kelli–
I’ve been working on losing a bit of weight. One of the things that I’ve been focusing on is to make sure that I get 10,000 steps in each day. Because I live in the hills on a gravel road, I don’t really feel safe walking on the road. I’m also pretty cheap and don’t really want to drive into town (8 or 9 miles) to walk because I don’t want to “waste” gas money (I know it probably sounds dumb).
My final option is to walk on the farm. When we moved last December, Jason said something about a trail, but honestly, I didn’t pay too much attention because I was worried about moving in a total of 12 days from when I first saw the house.
This spring, I did a bit of exploring and discovered an awesome field path back to an old farm shed. I have been walking out there most days and then around the yard a bit, but I definitely prefer walking out to the shed. With views like this, wouldn’t you?
This view is from the top part of the hill. There is a shed that went with a previous farmstead up here that is used to store some equipment.
This is my view going back towards home.
I don’t know about anyone else, but in my opinion, this is better than any view from a treadmill.

WOW!! Gorgeous and so green!
I totally agree! You go Girl!
Love your view! Keep walking!
Much better view than a treadmill!! Keep on walking!
Your view and path for walking is wonderful! Keep up the 10,000 steps!
I agree with you-why would I go to a gym, when I would have to drive to town to go. Country roads can be picturesque, but usually do not have shoulders to walk on. I walk on our farm too for that reason, it is also ever changing with the seasons.
I laughed when I read that you don’t want to waste the gas to drive to town. I do the very same thing! My view isn’t as good as yours and not as safe, but I mostly walk near my house too. Good luck with your weight loss (not an easy task!)
I actually love walking on gravel roads – I don’t wear headphones, so I can hear traffic coming from a long way off and move to the side. But usually there isn’t much traffic, so it makes for a peaceful walk. But I love the paths you’ve found!
Nice view, keep going, enjoy the change of seasons.
