I've gone a dozen times or so now, at different hours. Each has been more or less fun, though nothing can beat the absolute silence of 0200. One walk was just before dawn as I wanted to go shopping just as things were opening. I ran 5 miles through the woods, getting spooked by all the deer I was spooking. Having done so little cardio over the lockdown months I felt a little sick, like my heart wasn't right somehow. Probably because I was also lifting heavier in the interim, leaving me with bigger wheels, but a smaller engine to power them. I made it to town anyhow, which I'm told is supposed to be much more populated at this hour.
Last night I was walking home and saw a deer crossing the road, in the middle of the 'burbs. It crossed at the crosswalk like it knew. I followed it down the sidewalk half a block, because it was going my way anyway, and I couldn't help getting the impression that it makes this journey every night, like anybody. It stopped a couple times to listen, but not to me. It knew I was there, just a few feet away, and didn't mind. It turned into a little park where we parted ways.
Still feeling intense gratitude that I got to experience all this.>>833
It's great. Babby's first nightwalk is just a trip to the convenience store. Depending on the wildlife in your area, your disposition might need to be less "nature hike" and more "sneaking mission.">>835
Waiting for corona to end? But anon, this is the best possible time!
The streets are empty with everyone cowering indoors.
