In this episode, we’ll talk a little about what defines a “hike”. You can “hike” just about anywhere! There really shouldn’t be any excuse that we don’t have a place to hike. We can take a hike in our home or on a mountain. For some, a hike may be just getting up out of bed and making it to the kitchen. Some people are so restricted, physically that just lifting their head or blinking their eyes is a physical activity. We each know what our limitations are but the key is to push those limitations and be active! Episode 4 features a “soundseeing” hike and I took
my Roland R-05 stereo audio recorder along for the journey. The stereo recording makes it seem almost like you are there as you feel the depth and perspective of the sounds around you. There is a link below if you’re at all interested in doing some stereo recordings yourself. I encourage you to listen to this episode (and all episodes) with stereo headphones or speakers to get the full experience. This soundseeing hike recording is from a recent trip to Chicago.

Question you can put to the test: To get a close estimate of how fast you are hiking, count the number of steps in a minute and divide by 30. Put it to the test and let me know your results in the comments below or e-mail me at email@example.com
