Hi Stef -
FINFIN2 (Kevin) gave a "spot on" overview of how this works. If you're struggling with selecting a destination and want to walk with a group, consider joining several of us over in the Challenge Forum thread to walk to Mt. Fuji in Japan. We choose a different destination every month and several different length walks to get there. Pretty soon we'll pick a destination for September.
We would have to have you join us.
