"The Blog Almost Too Boring To Be The Most Boring Blog in America"
until it got too many red cards from Benjamin and the Boredom Enforcement Committee ... now the tortoise's goal is to get to 10 red cards so he can get Big Dog to drive down and take a good long walk with the tortoise
P. S. This blog listens to its readers. We have the Benjamin Category Override for 5+ mile walks and now, it humbles Tortoise to say he has been named "Lou", by Doug Jr, in memory of Mr. Consistency himself, Lou Gehrig. Tortoise can hardly type the words to think he is in any way comparable to the noble Iron Horse. Thank you!

Mile 406. Tortoise parked his car at the Route 66 Trailhead on Foothill Blvd. in Rancho Cucamonga, CA, slightly west of Vineyard/Carnelian, and walked uphill on the Pacific Electric Trail as far as Archibald, at a point a little north of Baseline and pictured above. This walk covered trail miles 5 1/4 to 7 in both directions, plus a little extra on each end.

Mile 402. Entered the Red Cliffs Desert Reserve this evening at the Millcreek Trailhead, which is 1.3 miles up a path walkers and mountain bikers share with ATVs. Tortoise continued to the point pictured above, which was a quarter mile past the junction with the Bone Wash Trail, then he retraced his steps to his parked car while there was still light.

Mile 392. Tortoise broke out his brolly to walk in the rain over to congratulate Toni Lindsay, now Bailey, and her new husband Tom. Toni has been bouncing off the walls happy for weeks, it has been so heartwarming to see!
Lou then continued up Main Street a total of a mile and retraced his steps in time to be home with some of his family that came to have dinner with him tonight. Another piece of a fine, fun evening!
