Philly Aids Walk
« on: October 16, 2011, 08:46:30 PM »
Today was the 25Th Annual Philly Aids Walk. 

I wanted to take a train yesterday and stay at a motel but Philly being Philly is expensive, I could not find a hotel for less then $125 that was close to the Art Museum, even the Hostel was around $90. I wanted it close the Museum because that is where it started and ended. 

  I was a volunteer at the photo stand where the teams got their pictures taken. Instead I got up at  3:30,  left home at 4  and was there by 6.  I only got lost once when I got near the start site.  Miss P told me that Philly is walking friendly, and it is.  It is NOT driving friendly.  I would never ride a motorcycle there, the people that live there drive wicked and they have the weirdest intersections.

After my volunteer stuff was done I walked the whole 8.5 miles and didn't even take the "to tired to walk farther bus" back.  It only took me 3 hours to walk it.  I did have to park about 1/2 mile from the start place, so I figure I did 10 miles or so with the other walking I did.

It was a great weather for the walk and I had a blast and took lots of pictures.  I did not get a picture of the cheerleader at the end of the walk.   Since I was volunteering I started walking about an hour after most people and they closed that stand before I got done.  I should have taken a picture of him earlier, he looked real good in the cheerleader outfit.  Why do guys make such good looking females? :D   I did get pictures of the time line they did and of the AIDS Quilts they had out. 

Yes I wore a coat this morning when it was cold  :) . I have a tendency of not wearing coats, but I have a cold :(  so decided to wear one.  The only thing I didn't do was put on sunblock, I forgot to bring  it.

I also decided I deserve a big bowl of chocolate cookies and cream ice cream with sprinkles, chocolate syrup and cool whip on it.  I'm also thinking that I don't have to go for a walk until at Wednesday or so.

Miss P.  thank you for the info you gave me.  I plan on going back for a weekend later and will use it then.  My first stops will be Urban Saloon and Gallaghers, they looked like neat places.
