Training to walk the Camino de Santiago:
What is the Camino de Santiago Pilgrimage Walk?
Could Walking Programs Save America's Malls?
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently published its first manual on the sport (if we can call it that). “Mall Walking: A Program Resource Guide” is an exhaustive, 50-plus-page manual meant to encourage mall managers to create programs that get community residents moving, but for reasons that are healthier than a big sale on Black Friday.
From the United States Environmental Protection Agency:
The UV Index provides a forecast of the expected risk of overexposure to UV radiation from the sun. The National Weather Service calculates the UV Index forecast for most ZIP codes across the U.S., and EPA publishes this information. The UV Index is accompanied by recommendations for sun protection and is a useful tool for planning sun-safe outdoor activities.

At the monthly CRVC meeting, we briefly discussed traveling to Grand Coulee for the three-day Northwest Hiking Weekend event sponsored by Four Plus Foolhardy Folk April 24-26. www.fourplushikers.org This weekend follows the Phoenix Festival in Victoria, Canada.
There is a group that is planning on staying in Victoria, doing area YREs after the Phoenix Festival, until Wednesday, April 22nd. They are then traveling by ferry from Victoria to Tsawassen (Vancouver, BC), driving through Canada and then south to Omak, WA, to stay Wednesday night (Rodeway Inn), and going on to Grand Coulee Thursday, staying at the Grand Coulee Center Lodge until Sunday.
If you are attending the Phoenix Festival, you are more than welcome to join the caravan to Grand Coulee. If not attending the event in Victoria, then you may want to join us for a fun weekend in Grand Coulee. The more the merrier!
Hoping to see you there!
