Hey Martha, welcome to the group. I don't use a pedomoter. Some of the trails I walk -- one regular one around a lake nearby - have mileage marked. I also go to a state park sometimes and the trail map shows miles.
When there aren't miles marked, I know from experience that I walk faster than a 17 minute mile and almost a 15 minute mile. So if I want to be 'fair' in estimating my mileage, I take my time and divide by 16. That's close enough.
Anyway - welcome to the team!
