GEOPenguin has started a spark team to walk/run/jog/bike the Pony Express.
www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/groups_individ
ual.asp?gid=50654


Since I have done The Walk to Rivendell several times now, I think this would be fun too! The way I am doing it is to model it after the WtR - GEOPenguin made this listing from St. Joseph MO to Sacramento CA, for a total of 1700 miles.

I am going to take it in sections, rather than copy & paste the entire list every day - but you can do it anyway that works for you. Please note on the left is the total miles traveled to each station (accumulating) so if you keep track of your total steps, you should be able to see how far you have traveled.

Miles Sation List:
0 St Joseph, MO
1 Elwood, KS
12 Troy, KS
30 Kennekuk, KS
40 Kickapoo, KS
