Ever since leaving Chicago to live in Lansing, I have finally found peace of mind.
- I care about the city, but it feels suffocating to me at times, especially riding public transit with cramped spaces.
Thankfully Lansing has several places for me to hike, enjoy Brownell Woods, Lansing Woods, Forest Preserve, North Creek Meadow, Sweet Woods, plus Thornton-Lansing Road Nature Preserve. When I lived down south, I didn’t know as comfortable hiking through dense woodlands. We had alligators, numerous species of rattlesnakes, deadly spiders, panthers, plus black bears just to name a few. Going off trails could result in an unexpected argument with a dangerous snake or spider. Even wild boars were a fear whenever I went hiking while in mating season or whenever mothers with young boars were roaming in areas near trails. But once I moved to Lansing, I was excited to learn that our only concern 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 worried about kneeling on a spider or walking into a snake. And I’m surely not worried 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 unusual kind of location in Lansing because I had a few sevenths to kill while our furnace was being installed. The weather in October is mild plus in the 60s while in the day, so I spent a few sevenths touring the Historic Ford Hangar with our spouse. He’s a vehicle fanatic plus has typically wanted to see it, despite having issues last year due to unexpected cold snaps.
