canceled (wussed out, really)

I had intended to do my yearly "crazy walk" this weekend—the 60K walk from my residence in Seoul to Yangpyeong City, just past Yangpyeong Station.  It would have started last night around 9:30 p.m. and lasted until around 2 p.m. today.  But rain was in the forecast, along with cooler temperatures than we've had in a while, so I chose the discretion is the better part of valor route and elected to postpone the walk until next week which, according to, is looking rain-free for the moment.  In theory, I could have done the walk, anyway, but I wussed out.  Rain + cold = the most demoralizing conditions for walking.

So how am I occupying myself?  I've got material for making sandwiches—tuna and PB&J—so I'll be spending my Saturday munching on 'wiches and binge-watching "Invincible," an adult cartoon series about some messed-up superheroes—a topic that seems to be all the rage these days.  (I see that I still haven't done a proper review of the Amazon series "The Boys," despite having watched two seasons of it.)  All my favorite YouTube film critics have been talking about "Invincible," so I thought I'd go see what all the fanfare was about.  I'm halfway through Season 1 (currently the only season, but Seasons 2 and 3 have been given the green light, so there's more to come); I'll binge the final four episodes today and have a review of the season out sometime tomorrow.  Stay tuned.  And have a gute Wochenende.

I was just thinking maybe I should do a 60K walk that takes almost 18 hours to complete. But then, what with discretion being the better part of valor and all, I told myself, "hell, no! Not in this lifetime!"

Good luck next weekend, though. A hike like that really is beyond my imagination. "Crazy walk" indeed!
