How does one buy walking sticks when you know nothing about them? I had no idea what to look for and no idea how to find them. Where do I buy walking sticks?
So I went to the tried and true Amazon and did a search for ‘walking poles”. Up came a bunch but after reading all those descriptions, I opted for the #1 Best Seller with a 4.5 rating. They were collapsible and I thought I’d like a pair that would fit into my knapsack.
The deciding factor was that I considered them affordable, about the same price as one month at the Y. These would do me for at least a year, I thought. The description said they were “for hiking, walking and running in all terrains.” That sounded good because my walking friend and I do beaches, forest trails, park trails and downtown streets, so I ordered a set.
Since I happen to have an Amazon Prime account (that happened the day I decided to explore Twitch) I could see that they would not take long to arrive at no delivery cost to me.
What Would You Do?
Would you make such a haphazard purchase online? Not knowing how they work or what makes a good purchase of Ladies Walking Sticks? Stay tuned for the next instalment in my adventure.
