my walking gear list to and from the apt to the bus stop for work or to the mall or store at night in Juneau
so iam going to get used to not haveing a vehicle for a while and need to get used to walking everywhere i need to go when iam in town there and great way to keep in shape as i getting older now ..
so here is my basic list of the items i have picked up from use in my walking program to keep from getting hit at night or in the rain .. ..
a Flourescent lime -yellow with sew on strips of the 4.inchs wide reflective tape on the vest to wear over the jacket ..the vest is x-6x sized so it really baggy and i can let hang down below the pack to let people see me from behind and front without a problem
a TIMBUK.2 XXL model semi custom daypack that been reworked for carrying loads with a waistbelt to help with the load wieght and a couple of extra bright yellow safety reflective straps on the back to see the backpack at night or in the rain .
also plan to stash my dress shoes inside the daypack for carrying them to work on a monday and bring them home on a friday night to polish them and bring them back on a monday dureing the winter time months to keep the wear and tear on them down to a basic level along with other items need inside the vest dureing work and carrying them home when they are not need
plus my cold weather jacket to wear with gloves and hat to wear when iam walking back and forth to the store or the bus stops in the mornings and the evening to be safe much as i can with the drivers who are out at that time of the day ..
we had gotten up early sunday morning to just take a walk and enjoy the time togerther before i had to get on a flight and come back and we where heading down the street to a local place to get a coffee and a donut and where crossing the street when a car just came out nowhere saight throught the stop sign without even stopping at the stop sign ..
i had my blaze orange jacket on with blaze orange watch cap and the guy never even slowed down that day
