Wilderness Walk: WWD: Walking While Dead Edition

New, comments

So, I was sitting on my couch

Huffington Post

Wilderness, I'm a teacher, and this is the first summer in 8 years when I'm not traveling with a band across the nation teaching youngsters (or being taught). Therefore, I'm enjoying what time off I have, till the 14+hour days of school begin again.

To take advantage of this time, I've decided to start watching 2 shows which have eluded me for quite a while: Battlestar Galactica, and The Walking Dead. That being said, I was watching Season 3 of Walking Dead this evening, playing NHL 12, (defeating the Oilers 5-2, with 4 goals from my power forward "be a pro"), and I got an email from our esteemed editor, Mr. Tony, asking me to do the walk. Upon the completion of that episode (WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN TO DARRYL AND MERLE!?!?!?!) I began the walk, and here it is for your enjoyment. There's quite a bit, so ENJOY.
