A Day Zero Project goal of P.J.’s has been completed!
Goal completed: Go bike riding for a day.
Date completed: April 6, 2011.
Number: 2 (remember, these goals will not all be done in order. It’s a random list where the numbers actually are).
Description: I’m trying to get myself into a healthier lifestyle and trying to exercise more. Being I’ve always liked biking a bit, I figured this would be a good one to add to the list.
Why I wanted to do it: To exercise, not rely on the car so much and to help get myself on the path for a healthier lifestyle. And, honestly, because biking can be fun and it’s a good way to get out and see things a little differently.
How I did it: Two of us went geocaching in the Poughkeepsie area, doing caches along two rail trails. We biked more than eight miles that day and picked up 20-plus geocaches on the trails. It was a wonderful thing and it has me looking at other bike trails around the state that might be worth considering a day trip to go, ride and cache, and come home. Unfortunately, we don’t have a lot of these in our area, but there is one I plan on checking out a bit more once the ground dries a bit more (it’s not a paved trail like many of the other ones). I would encourage any geocacher to try this for a day. It’s really quite fun.
About P.J.’s Day Zero Project: Day Zero is a project where people come up with 101 things to do over 1001 days. I started the project on Oct. 10, 2010 with an anticipated finish date of July 8, 2013. Goals will not be revealed until they are completed. A private list is at the Day Zero website and the list will be made public upon completion of the project. It’s my thoughts that if things are kept private, should I not do them, change or find a way around it, I’d only be cheating myself.
