Walking with weapons

Thursday, March 22, 2012

I've bought, as in actually paid money, my own money, to acquire a piece of exercise equipment!

(hint for the audience : this is where you go into boggle mode)

A pair of poles for nordic walking. Which is supposed to be all sorts of good. But mostly... As in my head I'm wandering around in the Zombie apocalypse, doing my missions. I want weapons! Something to poke the walking undead with.

Honestly, game or no game, people would look very strange at you tromping along in the woods waving around a cricket bat or chain saw. Very strange indeed. But out there in the wilds, just about every lady of a certain age, if not dragged around by a dog, seem to be wielding a pair of sharpened metal sticks. So taking up nordic walking over just regular walking. Apart from supposedly burning more calories and engaging more muscles and whatnot...

Well it's really in the realm of camouflage.

And weapons. In case of zombies.

    I still haven´t managed to get that app since I have to upgrade my iphone and I haen´t fgured that out quite yet... but walking sticks are terrific a soon as I leave the path in thewoods...something for little old ladies that is nottoo steady on their feet...and I guess also good for poking zombies!

    You may joke... there was a lady hiking in a wilderness area near here who was attacked by a psycho. Really, who does that? Anyway, she beat the guy off with her trekking poles. So it totally works as a weapon.

    Also, I have a pair. They really make things easier on the old knees.

    Ok, I've still not tried the game yet - I got turned off once I realized that I'd have to do it without the GPS, since I just have an iPod. However, I'm confused - how does your phone know whether or not you are thwacking imaginary zombies?

    Please explain.

    That said, I hope you have fun beating the zombies to a pulp with your fancy schmancy walking sticks!

    Hmm. Wise choice.

    I carry a walking stick I made myself. Less for the zombies, more for the neighborhood dogs...

    Sounds like something economical and indeed has a nice safety feature if some psycho jumps out of the woods... Take a class on handling a staff and you're in business :)

    How awesome is that! Weapons for walking. Talk about multitasking! The zombies don't stand a chance now. Trust.

    You poke 'em with the sharp end. Hard.

    Is there more to it than that?

    :P

    Now you just need to take a couple of martial arts classes to learn how to really weild a stick-- that would make me feel so tough...
