Plano is 15 miles north of Dallas, but since it is completely overbuilt you can’t tell when you leave Dallas or arrive in Plano. As sometimes happens our plans went awry. When we tried to register for the walk, the walk box was gone. Luckily we had a map of Plano so we made up our own walk route. I told the Plano Walkers club President that the box was gone, so it should be replaced soon.

where the walk registration box should have been.
