Hi Stef -

Pop over to the Mt. Fuji thread in the Challenge Walks section and say hello to the group. I'll be asking about a September desination shortly and we'll come up with one. Everyone's ideas counts, so if you have please jump on in.

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.

Hello and welcome to the team! generally what is done here is:
A) pick a starting point
B) pick a destination
C) apply your daily accumulation of miles toward your destination and enjoy your trip along the way.

I started a virtual walking trip from my home in southern Illinois to Key West Florida. I'm almost to the top of the keys in Florida now.

I like to use a Google map to chart my progress.

I used to be a horse rider...so walkings not my game...but since I dont have horses any longer and the gym is no longer an option, walking it will be.

I will NOT run emotionally from compliments and hide in fat layers for protection.

I'm not really sure how this works, but it sounds like fun. I love to walk. It's my favorite form of exercise. I look forward to getting to know every one.
