Walking to the pub - Ed's journal
Walking to the pub
As you may know, I have daily activity targets, in numbers of steps that I've been trying to keep up with. I'm mostly doing ok with it, and _most_ workdays hit target.
Which given my target is 20,000 steps at the moment (10 miles) is something I'm quite proud of.
The other day I spotted that it's basically 1000 steps to the Whitefriars from my house (half a mile). Which means I could walk there, have a pint, walk back, and clock up 2000 steps by doing so.

This obviously extends into round trips to the pub, punctuated by a beer inbetween. Given we're talking about 10 round trips, it might have to be halves :).

I couldn't quite figure out if this was really good, or really wrong.

But it lead me to thinking - the weather is warming up, and I like trying to get my daily steps in. So would it not be splendid, if I were to talk to a country pub somewhere, have a beer and a drink, and walk back again.
I mean, Kenilworth is 5 miles or so.
The bear at berkswell is 6.
The Old mill at Baginton is 3.5
Ryton is 4.7.
Bedworth is similarly, about 5 miles.

So, on a warm summer afternoon - either at the weekend, or one evening - would anyone be interested in a bimble in search of beer and a pub lunch?

Sure. Although whether I'll be around, and not busy, on any suitable day...

Yes! That was my summer afternoon thing whilst in sixth form - a nice bimble down to the Old Mill cos it was a pretty walk and not too far from my Mum's :)

May well be interested, on a Saturday morning, arriving at the pub around 12 for lunch, if the company can cope with curious toddler!

Unfortunately other times tend not to be toddler routine friendly....

Most definitely, if I'm about.
