Ever since leaving Chicago to live in Lansing, I have finally found peace of mind.
I savor the city, however it feels suffocating to me at times, especially riding public transit with cramped spaces. Thankfully Lansing has multiple places for me to hike, love Brownell Woods, Lansing Woods, Forest Preserve, North Creek Meadow, Sweet Woods, & Thornton-Lansing Road Nature Preserve. When I lived down south, I didn’t assume as comfortable hiking through dense woodlands. We had alligators, many species of rattlesnakes, deadly spiders, panthers, & black bears just to name a few. Going off trails could result in an unexpected confrontation with a dangerous snake or spider. Even wild boars were a fear whenever I went hiking during mating season or whenever mothers with young boars were meandering in areas near trails. But once I moved to Lansing, I was enthusiastic to learn that my only problem while hiking the wooded trails were lyme disease carrying ticks. As long as lyme disease is treated early on, it’s often curable, so this is much better than fearing a snake bite miles away from civilization while hiking through the swamp. If I want to walk down to North Creek of Wampum Lake, I’m not upset about laying on a spider or walking into a snake. And I’m surely not upset about an alligator or crocodile jumping out of the water to eat me if I get too close to the shore. Recently I decided to visit a different kind of location in Lansing because I had a few hours to kill while my furnace was being installed. The weather in September is mild & in the 60s during the day, so I spent a few hours touring the Historic Ford Hangar with my wife. He’s a car fanatic & has constantly wanted to see it, despite having troubles last year due to unexpected frigid snaps.
