Homer's Travels: Up And Down And ...

Up And Down And ...

For those who have the crazy idea that Omaha is a flat city, I walked a 14.5 mile loop with 3,228 feet total assent on Thursday.  My calves are still feeling it two days after the walk.

One odd happening.  As I was walking I had my GPS in my right hand pants pocket.  Every so often I would check it and I would find that it had lost reception.  Finally after loosing reception a couple times, I switched it to my left pocket.  It never lost reception for the remaining seven or eight miles.  The only thing I can think of is that my keys, also in my right pocket, may have interfered with the GPS signal.


  1. We will have to do some extensive studying on this matter. You'll have to go on more calf-exhausting walks and report the findings back to us! :D

  2. Okay, 3,228 feet is impressive. BUT: what was your maximum and minimum elevation, eh? ;)

  3. Miss McC: See my next post. My calves aren't hurting as much after my most recent long walk. I guess this walk warmed me up for longer walks.

    GH: But But But ... Is that all you think about? Ruining my moment forcing me to write this comment with tongue firmly planted in cheek.
