You could probably get a good idea of how many steps your two hour walk was by checking your steps at about the 10 min. mark on your next walk, then multiplying by 12 and you'll get a pretty good guesstimate that you can enter against your PEI steps.

Happy Stepping!!!

I walked over 2 hours but forgot the pedometer! I am going out today I have it sitting by the dog leash, so I will have some steps later today.

Good for you - one of my best pedometers (that stopped working) was my cheapest ever and I couldn't replace it so that's when I got my Fitbit Zip. The point is that it motivates you "to step up your stepping" - Welcome Aboard!!!

Wow! This is just fantastic! I only have a cheap, crappy pedometer, so I am not sure how accurate it will be, but I am totally in! I too will start with the smallest - PEI - God bless you for being tiny!

Steps to cross PEI - 434,000

I have a big trail walk planned for tomorrow, so hopefully the pedometer will work.

"He who limps is still walking." ~ Joan Rivers
And that's me! Some days are harder than others, but I'm going to make them all count!!

I've completed stepping across PEI (434,000 steps - 217 miles), New Brunswick (1,018,000 steps - 820 km or 509 miles), Nova Scotia (700 km or 434 miles apx 868,000 steps) and now on to Newfoundland & Labrador - (900 km or 559 miles - apx 1,118,000 steps). My daily goal is 8000 steps as I continue my quest to virtually walk across Canada using the Trans Canada Trails.

- 8000 steps a day is recommended for women over 60 - see www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2008/0

- 6000 steps a day were shown to be correlated with a lower death rate in men in a Harvard Study. - see walking.about.com/cs/measure/a/locke

Continuing ...

Choose a Province you wish to walk across from the list below. Each day record how many steps, miles and/or km you have covered by walking or running. (Biking may be an option too.) Take that number and subtract it from the total. You can track your distance using a pedometer, google maps or similar options that give you the approximate distance.

Trans Canada Trail

Alberta - 2,200 km or 1,367 miles (apx 2,734,000 steps)
BC - 2,700 km or 1,677 miles (apx 3,354,000 steps)
New Brunswick - 820 km or 509 miles (apx 1,018,000 steps)
Ontario - 4,000 km or 2,485 miles (apx 4,970,000 steps)
Quebec - trail not yet complete
Manitoba - 1,188 km or 738 miles (apx 1,476,000 steps)
Nova Scotia - 700 km or 434 miles (apx 868,000 steps)
Newfoundland & Lab - 900 km or 559 miles (apx 1,118,000 steps)
Northwest Territories - 640 km (for land, 4,000 km for water) or 397 miles (for land, 2,485 miles for water) (apx 794,000 steps)
Nunavut - no trails as yet
PEI - 350 km or 217 miles (apx 434,000 steps)
Saskatachewan - 1,400 km or 869 miles (apx 1,738,000 steps)
Yukon - 1,600 km or 994 miles (apx 1,988,000 steps)

TOTAL trail length = 14,518 km or 9,021 miles (apx 18,042,000 steps)

(Above calculations are based on the average of 2000 steps per mile.)

****************************************
**************************************
*******

EXAMPLE I walked 5.89 miles yesterday (11,780 steps)
I am walking Ontario ... now Ontario's trans Canada Trail is 2,485 miles .. now if i take off the 5.89 miles I walked I get 2,479.11 miles remaining to be walked till i have completed the trail

or

Ontario 2,485 miles - 5.89 miles = 2,479.11 miles left to go

or

Ontario = 4,970,000 steps ... took 11,780 steps, 4,958,220 steps to go

****************************************

Many, many thanks to NYXWOLFWALKER for providing all of the above details and info - much appreciated!!!
