Nordic walking stick versus ski poles

Sunday, March 06, 2016

I keep toying with the idea to get walking sticks and then I looked at the price and then I looked at my track record. It seems like the more "fancy" stuff I get, the less likely I will be to use them. So someone left ski poles at the house. (I have no idea why or when). Anyway, I decided to use them like nordic walking sticks to see how I like them. (Never mind that they were uneven in size, splintering because they are wood, and the plastic falling apart).

Using them on the hills was great. But I can't help thinking this would be a personal fad and the more important thing is that I just walk with GOOD shoes. Welcome any thoughts especially if you, too, have a tendency to get equipment and then not use and give away.
