I first heard of Louis Windmuller, founder of the Pedestrians Club and "the noblest walker of them all", back in the summer of 2012 when I passed through a little park named after him in Woodside. It seemed fitting that it was only by wandering around myself that I learned about this forgotten practitioner of the peripatetic arts. And then today, completely by chance, I came across his grave right here in Mount Olivet!
Hello Matt :-),
Trust you and yours are having a fine Thanksgiving weekend.
How cool that you stumbled upon the park and his grave while on your walk. Very fitting, indeed.
You have already started your own Pedestrians Club. Perhaps somewhere down the road, you will want members. Some of them then might even join you on other walks.
It’s impressive that you have walked so much and are still walking now. Though I don’t comment that often, I am still following you.
Wishing you all the best.
