RAYLINSTEPHENS - I just saw the post you wrote on June 27. So ... you have already walked across the country once?! (Or how many times? You walk more than anyone I know!)

CONGRATULATIONS!

I am in VA, on my first trip across. I used to live in VA and am enjoying it, but they surely did plan a long way across it!

The "finish line" is 4063 miles. You have finished! Congratulations. What are you going to do now?

You don't receive a notification. Some people just keep going, but the picture doesn't change, so I like to start over and see what else is on the trail that I've missed. You do have to register using another name or email address. I use an initial or a different address. I do write them down as I'm forgetful at times.

Finished about a week ago. Took a couple of days to remember to start over. Must be getting old. Am back in Virginia but love it there so it doesn't matter that it is a long walk. Love passing through.

Congratulations CAROLINANAN117! Good luck on starting over.

I finished on 2/9/14. I had less than a mile to the ocean and I finished that yesterday. My toes would be in the ocean if it wasn't cold! This was the second time through for me. I was trying to find exactly when I started but had a hard time. I was making good time on the second trip through but then Halloween 2013, 3 1/2 months ago, I had a stroke with a brain bleed and was in the hospital for 5 weeks and in rehab and on a walker until New Year's Day when I got rid or it for good. The last several weeks have been slower but I made it!!!! Yeah! Never give up!

I finally found that I started the 2nd time through on Jan 23, 2012. So it took me a little over 2 years to get it all done. The first time it took me a little over 2 years also. Not bad with time out for a stroke.

Finished the trek sometime last week but didn't get miles posted until yesterday. Am back on the road today. It is great fun.

Started July 21 2012 and finished officially August 21, 2013.

It is the fifth complete crossing plus one I didn't complete logging so I will count only half of it.

Wow, and just like that it's over? Seems almost anti-climatic to me. I really need to get working on this. On building a better version, a new route, and the ability to go in the opposite direction. I can do this...

That is wonderful! I love that our members start back on the trail the next morning. It does give me someplace to walk.

Congratulations... again!!!

I enjoyed the photos so much that I was sorry that I hadn't walked only a mile each day so I could see them all. The trouble with cycling, my main form of exercise, is that the segments are longer and you miss a lot of the photos.
The most interesting part was seeing the photos from Eastern Oregon to Florence because we actually rode those miles on our bikes in Oregon one summer. Great memories!

I started my first trip across America on 12-11-2009 and finished it on 8-29-2011. I started over the very next day and just finished that second trip on 10-24-2012 so I am getting faster all of the time. I have started over again and am seeing sights that I haven't seen on the other two trips. This keeps me enthused about my cycling and walking and I have been doing it so long that I don't think that my day would be complete without logging on to record my milage! I live in Kansas and the route passes directly in front of my home so I always get excited when I get close to home. I am so glad that I joined this team as I get so much support and encouragement from my friends here! Thank you so much!

I began in 2007 and I don't know what the total trip distance is, nor do I remember how many times I've done it. My total miles now are 9094 + one half trip. I lost my login after my email address went through several changes and I couldn't login.

This is a roster of members who finish a transcontinental virtual trip across the United States from Yorktown, Virginia to Florence, Oregon. Record your accomplishment. You not only reinforced your own healthy lifestyle but you also helped support the team each time you entered your mileage, and shared your progress.

Add the date when you finished your trip and your start date, with any comments you want to share. We hope you make plans to start back across and keep us company. Be seeing you on the road!

Gail
