A Local Day Hike on The Appalachian Trail

Hiking

These soft spring days are a good time to be out in the woods, and if you can coordinate with another person, walking a section of the Appalachian Trail is an inviting option.

Fitness

The NW YMCA’s gym at Geer in North Canaan is  a jolly place where men and women read each other’s T-shirts, thank anyone who resets the TV from Fox News and help newcomers adjust the variables of an exercise machine. The place draws people of all ages. (One person wanted to know if an elderly gal used her cane on the treadmill), and all levels of physical prowess.

Class

Christopher Valli has been studying the German school of medieval combat for 13 years, to the point where he makes it look easy. He can deftly slice a longsword through the air, disarm an attacker who has a dagger and knock back an opponent using a poleaxe — all while explaining every move with a smile.

Food: Thomas E. Jensen
