I haven’t forded a river since my Oregon Trail days, but I remember it was difficult.
I’ve seen kids walk accross the low head dams when it gets dry in the summer. Feet get wet, but works ;)January 25, 2011 6:06 pm at 6:06 pm #423855
Most of it is probably still frozen enough to cross. People are ice fishing locally, but I don’t know of any on the O.January 25, 2011 9:16 pm at 9:16 pm #423856

Here’s one expert’s thoughts on the transit score methodology:

Brighton Rd. near corner of High & N. BroadwayJanuary 26, 2011 2:16 am at 2:16 am #423861
I live in the Olde Towne/Franklin Park valley region of the Near East Side.
Walk Score- 54 (I would not walk on Main Street at night; if I’ve walked in my neighborhood at night, I’d better have a good reason)
Transit Score- 49 (did I mention there is a COTA bus stop right in front of the house right next to mine?)
– 53% of Columbus residents have a higher walk score
Where I lived in college, the walk score was much better at 71, because the UPtown District was one block away, and had restaurants, bar(s), CVS, and a donut place to go to at 2AM.January 26, 2011 11:16 am at 11:16 am #423862
I started a thread for this on a statewide fishing board, with amusing results. A lot of those people live out in the country and they get scores of zero. But a few of them pull some high scores.January 26, 2011 2:26 pm at 2:26 pm #423863
Bruck and Gates in Merion Village
Walk = 72
Transit = 42
both scores seemed low, I have bus stops around and I can walk to almost anything I want, bar, park, breakfast, lunch and dinner, pet store, grocery store, pawn shop, thrift store, crack dealer, etc etc?January 27, 2011 12:21 am at 12:21 am #423864
I live just north of the Park of Roses in Clintonville.
Walk = 54
Transit = 40
I don’t own a car, but I’ve never had any problems commuting by bus and bike. (In fact, there is a bus stop right outside my apartment complex, and another across the street to go in the opposite direction.) That being said, the #2 is probably the least efficient bus to take…ever.
I spend a lot of time downtown as well. Gay Street and 3rd scores a 71 for walkability and a 67 on transit. (As to be expected, considering the main bus stops are in this area.)
