When I do my virtual walking, I try to get as much information on the area where I am walking. The computer is really helpful this way. I can find the weather conditions, sunrise-sunset times, etc, and that way I can really put myself at that place (in my mind). I have used both my walking and cycling mileage for the virtual walk. Pictures from the internet can give me an idea of the area, as well as the satellite pictures on the google maps.

I didn't find any "rules" about how to log miles on our vitual journey...one day, after walking around the mall looking for the "perfect" gift - it occurred to me that I walk a long way and "never get anywhere", meaning - if it wasn't a fitness walk, I didn't count it. So - I bought a step counter and am taking credit for all the distance I walk mowing the grass, finding my car in the parking lot, shopping, back and forth the to basement, airports, etc....day to day living. So - I am adding "life-happens" walking to my intentional walks. What do you think???
