Walking old Rt. 66

Thursday, June 13, 2013

I've decided to do a virtual walk of old Rt. 66 going East to West. I've traveled on the old road in spots a few times while traveling for work. It's a neat bit of history, so I figure why not walk it. It's a long walk, over 2000 miles, but I have lots of time. Using Google Maps and Google Earth I can track my route and even zoom in and see what's around where I stop. This could be a fun walk. I'll post my progress periodically and we'll see how long it takes me to get to the end. So I've added up my miles since I started Spark and am at about 50. I've entered Joliet, Il.

    That's a great idea! I am using the website to track my virtual walk across the U.S. although it has been a few weeks since I logged my miles.
There is also a team on Sparkpeople for this walk.

I hope you have a great "trip"
