  • Sure hope no one gets run over on these walks. Keep your head on a swivel as I am sure no police will be patrolling if the huntings good out east.

  • wear a bullet proof vest if your crazy enough to be anywhere near downtown Mogadishu err Gainesville!

  • It’s good two walks are when sundown is approaching. Just wear light tone clothing. Not dark like most downtown peds do before getting brushed.
