    A Very Scary Hike Back To Camp

    Okay when I was younger ( I am 13 now) I went on a hike with my Boy Scout friends. We had to go on a scavenger hunt to find used bottles and cans that we used for a measurement game ( My friend and I won btw ^.^) when everyone was done with the game (it took people a few hours to...

    Love It

    I love to walk at night. Just me, myself, invisible to all.... Enjoying the night air, serenity of the sleeping world around me. It’s very calming to me…

    The One Euphoric Moment

    From a very young age my father would walk across the city form miles or kilometers on end pushing me on a stroller. We would leave in the afternoon and come back at night in the darkness. I was so facinated from that time on by the beauty of the city scapes at night. All the...

    Sweet Sweet Night

    *sigh* I love thinking upon this night. It gives me goosebumps. It was in many ways my coming out, my new beginning. The start of who I am now. But don't let me hype it up too much. Here goes: It was late in the nighttime and I've decided to stay up until midnight, if not...

    Yeah Just the Other Night....

    Yeah just the other night. I had to walk back to put the garbage in the shed, which is about 100ft from the house.  We live way out in the woods with NO lights. When I say no light I mean it, I'm not joking, and it is scary as hell.  We have bear and coyotes around here...

    When I Lived In Kearney

    I would frequently take long walks in the dark.  I lived in a motel that my mom managed and right behind it was a lake with a bunch of trees surrounding it. It was there i learned it was indeed possible for me to pray.  It never felt right thinking it.  So i would...

    Straight Down the Middle of the Road.

    I walked a straight line, on the black asphalt of the street. An occasional lightning bolt flashes across my view, and lit up the whole area. A few skinny tress lining the sidewalk, some houses set into a line on both sides of me. The bold thunder only accentuated the pouring...

    Tick... Tick... Tick... Tick... It's the only thing besides my breathing that breaks the silence, the clock is all the way downstairs in the kitchen, but it's late, real late, and the sound it makes beats against my ears, and my sanity. I can't sleep, I'm restless, the day has...

    It's Much Safer

    I do this a lot in the summer time particularly.

    I love walking on paths at night with only the moon to light the way. To me it is one of the most peaceful things to do. Provided I know the area lol. I once went for a run on a path that my friend told me I "couldn't get lost on" and naturally I went at dusk, got lost and ended...

    I have had the habit of walking alone late at night for years now.  Yeah, I know it's not the safest thing a lady could do but frankly when I am in the mood to walk like that nobody could take me anyway.  During my short stay at college I would go walk around campus...

    I Didn't Know Where I Was Going

    My then-boyfriend and I got into an argument about something. I was living with him at the time. I felt so upset and frustrated that I walked out of the house at about 4am and started wandering the neighborhood. Eventually I sat on the sidewalk somewhere and cried for an hour.

    Dark Alley Ways

    I grew up in a small safe town. Alley ways were as safe at night as they were during the day. I loved to walk down the alleyways at night because they were the darkest parts of the town. It was such a thrill to walk down the dark alley ways. Not because I thought there was...

    Walking at night is nice if its not too chilly, especially if you're with somebody.  Otherwise depending on the area its a bit creepy.

    It Was Fun

    I was being strange, and I walked up and down a path outside, alone, in the darkness. I wasn't even scared of anything out there, like I normally would be. That was a fun walk.

    A bump in the night. It bumped back. This guy jumped out of the bushes & jumped me. He pulled me into the bushes & had his way with me. That's what happens when I take a walk in the darkness of night. The darkness inside me wants to take over every time I walk outside at night.

    I have a blind dog that is aggressive to other

    dogs so it is safer if I walk him at night. Also, I practice walking with my chest lifted (my trainer's advice) to strengthen my core and improve my posture. It looks really weird, like I'm trying to make my chest bigger. I'm glad it's too dark for anyone to see me!
