This blog is devoted to Volksmarching. As I do an event I will post a few pictures of the walk and a short description. I have another website where I post “all” the pictures I take at an event.
Volksmarches are leisurely walks. They are through scenic, historic, and interesting areas over a predetermined route that has been checked for safety and walkability. Our walks are sanctioned by the American Volkssport Association (AVA) and the International Volkssport Association. The purpose for doing sanctioned events and not just walking at a local park is to collect stamps in our record books. Stamp collecting becomes a passion. We have event record books, distance record books, and special program record books.
I have completed the special programs for walking College Campuses. For a list of walks I did for that program you can visit here. I also completed the one for walking along/over Rivers. For a list of walks I did for that program you can visit here. I have also completed the Murals Special Program..
No matter how many sets of books you decide to keep, you only pay $3.00 for each walk. After paying the $3.00 and completing the walk you can collect stamps in ALL of you books. You become very proud of your stamp collection!
