I managed to get to COX to check out the layout. I'll hopefully be standing in front of the building. I'll be wearing an ORANGE SPARKPEOPLE shirt and I'll have a small AMERICAN flag with me. I hope we have a good turnout tonight. Even if you aren't walking, please come and meet some of the members. It is very informal, no agenda's and no time limits. I'm bringing something to sit on just in case my knee is bothering me.

I haven't been to Cox before so I'll head over that way on my way from work and get a general idea and will post it here, tomorrow.

I wanted a new spray on recently and had trouble there since all the summer stuff is being cleared out. I got it at Target but didn't see any clip on. Don't know how that would work for the whole body but it does sound intriguing. I haven't seen the ads.

There is a new clip on mosquito repellent by Off. I haven't tried it yet. Sounds interesting. Wouldn't it be nice not to spray on bug repellent!

I'm also new to the are - moved here at the end of June. I've been to Cox a couple of times - most recently right before the butterfly festival - the monarchs were still caterpillars munching away. I would love to meet up with others there. I look forward to hearing when.

You all know my situation, I am there if I have transportation.

For those who are thinking you can not meet with us because your physical limitations will prevent you from walking with us, FEAR NOT, we do what ever is necessary to accomodate you! We just want to meet you, that is the whole point, meet chat about our successes and not so much success. Put a face to those we have met here on SP and lend one on one support. Very informal, very friendly! Welcoming to all.

By no means am I a fast walker. I will be taking an easy stroll thru the beautiful gardens and talking to new friends. That is the one thing that always worries me about meeting up to walk with others is that I know I am no where near the level of a lot of people and I don't want to slow them down or kill myself trying to keep up. Lets all plan to meet up and then we can split up from the hikers to the strollers that way we can all feel comfortable emoticon

lori-If you remember, I have some issues with walking very far too. Maybe we can take a slow stroll while everyone else does a faster pace.

I'll have to see what is happening with the schedule the next couple weeks before I can set anything.

I'm thinking towards the end of the month because we had two girls quit at my second job and I'm probably going to pick up a few extra hours until we get new people trained. Cox Arboretum is south and we didn't get to go last time because of the rain.
