About a month ago, my Daughter talked me into going on a walk. I just figured we would go up the road and back. I had no idea she meant a 6 mile walk.
It was such a beautiful day that we just kept walking and talking.
We decided to get off the roadway and onto an old railroad that was turned into a walking or bike trail.
As we were walking, my Daughter mentioned that she wanted to find some old railroad spikes and do something unique with them.
So I started looking for the spikes. She kept telling me they were on the trail not in the weeds.
Along the way, I told my Daughter that my Father, her Grandfather used to work on the Railroad in that area laying track. I told her that he could have put in some of the railroad spikes that we found laying along, and on the walking trail.
That got both of us even looking harder for the spikes. We ended up carrying about 12 pounds of metal for miles. It was kind of funny because we had our shirts full of spikes trying to get them back to her house.
