Hey Glitterchick, the beauty of this site is that you can walk across the ocean if that's what it takes!

Good luck on your walk.

I agree. A southern route may be best. The Arctic winters are brutal!

Good Luck with your walk! What a great idea and you have real incentive to make it there! I like finfin's idea of using walking miles over the swimming distances!

I am in a small group that are on our way to Hawaii and around the world. We apply our walking miles toward swimming there.

Well, I suppose there are two ways you can go.

1. Head north to Canada through Quebec to Buffin Island. If you leave now, the seas should be frozen so you could walk from Iqaluit, Canada to Nuuk, Greenland.
Continue east through Icleand, Faroe Islands, Shetland Islands, and Norway.
Cut across Denmaar, Germany, Poland, Belarus, Russia, and head south (ish) when you get to the Ural Mountains.
You will then cross Kazakhstan, Tukmenistan, and then you are in Afghanistan.

2. Head for Alaska, and cross into Russia across the Bering Straits (should also be frozen). Head south east through Siberia and Mongolia to Kazakhstan and south to Afghanistan.

As for the miles or hours, I have never walked it so I don't know, but you can google the distance on the computer,

Good luck, and happy walking
