Today we went for our weekly hike which was great fun (and great weather! finally!). Last week we borrowed the BIL's walking sticks which many people swear by (they are supposed to be better for your knees and ankles than hiking without them). I would love to get a pair of these but as you can see, they are pretty expensive.
So hubby's answer to getting a walking stick was to pick up a golf club for $2 at the Goodwill, cut the head off of it, and "ta da", instant walking stick!
