WALK OF THE WORLD #102

27 June 2018 – training #11

As bus traffic in Nijmegen city and the regional network was completely down due to a general strike of the bus drivers, announced for three days, starting today, we had to take that in consideration choosing the itinerary for todays’ training.

 

Leg 1: Nimwegen (home) – Groesbeek – Seven Hills Road – Berg en Dal:

dep.: 07:58 / 14.68Km / 9.8M / 3h 02m / Coffe break

Leg 2: Berg en Dal – Hill of the Devil – Beek-Ubbergen:

dep: 11:31 / 5.97Km / 4M / 1h 18m / Lunch break

Leg 3: Beek-Ubbergen – Nimwegen (East) – WotW start/finish – home:

dep.: 13.50 / 7.21Km / 4.8M / 1h 35m

TOTAL: 27.86Km / 18.57M in 5h 55

However, the stepcounter reports only distances walked in 10m or more. The real day result is: 40.098 steps = 30.24Km / 20.16M (where 30Km / 20M is the daily distance to walk + 2 times 2.1Km for home – start-finish v.v..

The 40.098 steps are a new record!!!

 

 

RE: 0555/Walk of the World

On the evening of 29 December 2016, a Romanian benzene tanker dug in very dense fog through the Grave dam. This ensured that the Meuse and the Meuse-Waal Canal literally ran empty. Shipping was not possible for a long time and houseboats became uninhabitable. The social damage went into the tens of millions of euros.

De beschadigde stuw bij Grave vanuit de lucht.

Rijkswaterstaat bekijkt met onderwatercamera's de schade aan de stuw van de John S. Thompsonbrug bij Grave, die beschadigd raakte toen er een schip tegenaan voer.

De jachthaven van grave kwam bijna droog te staan na de aanvaring van een schip met de stuw.
