I posted my walk, then somebody started posted his stuff on my "post" so it makes it too difficult to post mine, so I quit. I might have to start a new one. And hopefully nobody posts information on mine.

Only because I walk a lot at work and I'm just using my pedometer (FitBit) miles. Aiming for a total of 2500 miles this year. I'd only be at around 66 miles if I just used my elliptical and walk/jog for exercise miles.

Hello all,

I started my walk from Reading PA to Grand Teton National Park last month. The total mileage is 2075.53. So far I'm 58.58 miles in with 2016.95 to go. It's a very long walk but I'm going to be glad when I do manage to get there. It's a great National Park.

Take care,

Lisa

I am walking from my home in Payette, Idaho to my mother's home in Fernley, Nv. Did 2 miles today, only 396 to go. LOL. I hope to meet some new friends from this team. Good luck all!!

Hi All,
What a great idea.
I am going to walk from Brantford, ON to Gore Bay, Manitoulin Island ON, which is approximately 225 miles and I plan to be there for New Year's eve. My walking abilities are limited by arthritis, but I will have my treadmill up and walking very shortly and it is a lot easier for me to walk when I something to hold on to. emoticon

Hey everyone,
Hope you all had a great day and are now relaxing and resting your feet for tomorrow's walk. I joined this team a couple days ago but don't know quite where to start! Seeing that the month is almost over, I will wait til the begin of July When you all start the next round of walking and jump on board! In the mean time i will cheer you guys on from the side line.
You all have a great night!

Hello, I've just discovered this team and it looks interesting and motivating. I will be walking from Pilot Mountain, NC to Best Friends Animal Sanctuary, Angel Canyon Road, Kanab, Utah. This is the place I most want to be besides home.

The distance is 2175.99 miles. I can't possibly leave my family behind so I will be taking this trip with 2 dogs, 2 cats and carrying my 20 year old blind, deaf cat. He currently weighs about 6.5 lbs so I will use a weight for him as I walk since actually carrying him that far would result in my blood loss. (He may be old but he knows what he likes and when he has had enough - even of a good thing.)

I will log my progress in the time after work when I actually walk with my guys and I'll carry a weight for Dusty. I will repeat - Patience is a virtue - as I walk.

Some really interesting walks and reasons for doing these mamouth treks.
I want to walk the South Coast of England. It isn't anything like as far as some of the walks, but I'll see where it takes me. I'd love to explore the towns and villages and countryside that I pass through. A virtual tour seems quite exciting. I hope it motivates me to clock the miles.

Hello, I'm new. I think this is a GREAT way to help me want to get on the treadmill or out for a walk more often!!! I am walking from Holly, Michigan (where I live) to Liberty, Kentucky (where I want to live). It is 439 miles and I will start next time I walk, tonight or tomorrow. This is really fun, thanks.

Hey. I decided to walk the Erie Canal Trail, 380 miles from Buffalo to Albany. I think it may be fun to do some actual research on the area where my mileage lands me and maybe find a pic or two, which unfortunately can't be posted in this forum. I am hoping to have the money to join the Erie Canal Trail ride from Buffalo to Albany that's becoming an annual event. They ride about 50 miles a day and I think take 8 days. I'll create my own thread above.


Many bright blessings,
Schisandraa

I'm going from St. Louis, MO to White Bear Lake, MN where my sister lives. At the rate I'm going, it will take me months to reach her front door. Hopefully, this spring I can greatly increase my daily mileage. So far I've "shaved off" 20 miles from the 540 miles I have to go..../ugh!

Hi, I'm new to this team. Thought this just might be the thing to give me the incentive to keep up with my walking everyday.

I thought my first virtual walk would be from my home in Wheatfield, NY to Buckhannon, W Virginia. A close girlfriend of mine lives there. Its 367 miles and figure it should take me about 5 months to get there.

To break it down further would be about 73 miles per month.

Here's to getting there!!

That's a great idea. You could even break it down further, like into monthly goals.

I realize that walking to Germany does not seem very realistic, so I am altering my walk. I will start with the 701 mile walk from my home in Eastpointe, Michigan to my brother's house in Lawrenceville, Georgia. After that, then I'll increase my distance.

Don't be afraid of trying and failing, be afraid of not trying at all. Trying leads to accomplishing. Accomplishing leads to success.

Happy New Year! I'm new to the team and it has been a dream of mine to go to Germany and visit a castle that belonged to a very distant ancestor. I want to try to find out how many miles from Eastpointe, Michigan (just outside Detroit) to Germany (by the Rhine-Westphalia) I think it would help me to achieve my goal. Also, I am planning a trip there with my sister next year! Walking the distance will make me feel like I really earned it!

Hi. I'm new on this team--seems much more interesting than just clocking miles/time.

I'm going from Salem OR to San Antonio TX where my brother lives. Don't know why--all we'll do is fight--but he's all the family I have left!

OWLHOO/WHO--where's that map link I saw somewhere on this string? I have no idea how far it is to SAT. Tanks.

I am planning a virtual walk to my cabin, it's 125 miles from my home. My friend buddy B is also walking to her cabin which is on the same lake, the first to arrive prepares the beverage, the second to arrive prepares the meal. She is a better cook than me...that is an incentive for me to get there first.

Hi everyone, just have to say that I'm so glad I found this team. I've been away from Spark for a couple of months, and having a goal like this I think will be really helpful in staying motivated. I'm walking from Chesapeake, VA to Salem, MA- 573 miles (one of my favorite little cities...I miss living there), and my first goal is Williamsburg- 47 miles.

I'm new to this team but I put in a lot of miles in the average week so...I figure why not start big and just expect it to take a while? I'm aiming for Bismark, North Dakota where my two nephews and their young families just moved to. That's about 1193 miles from my home in CA. My walk started yesterday with 2.6 miles, August 3, 2008
1190.4 miles to go.

Hi JUSTYNA7, and welcome to the team. I like your goal and your enthusiasm for it. If you like, stop into the "Cooling off" thread in the Challenge Walks area and say hey to all of us walking in Alaska. We are a supportive bunch and many of us are late 40-somethings or early 50 somethings. So, we are at similar places in our lives. I checked out your Spark Page and I think it's marvelous that you have set a mileage goal for age 50. I had a goal for age 50 when I joined Spark at just over 49, and it was to look good in my 50th surprise party birthday photos - and I did.

Good luck on your journey - both the walk and the Sparking.

Hey guys! I am just above New York in Ontario but walking towards you. I started in Ottawa at the base of Parliament Hill and have walked along the Ottawa River to a place called Bell's Corners. I am walking the Rideau Trail to Kingston on Lake Ontario and my next segment is to get through Bell's Corners. Each segment I see some pretty cool stuff. Along the Ottawa River it was sail boats and trying to leap out of the way of bikers and joggers (in Ottawa area the trail is shared as a bike path) which happily is thinning out as I leave the city. I walked through a horse farm and saw a stag and doe on two occassions. This will not be a daily report from me because I have a couple of busy weeks ahead with my work but my goal is to get the Bell's Corners segment in this week. Wish me luck!

I have joy in my soul and joy in my step. Walk with me! Justyna

We seem to have a lot of New Yorkers in NC. In fact, the joke around here is that Cary stands for

Containment Area for Relocated Yankees

and a nearby town in the next county - Clayton - stands for

Cary Like Area Yankees Trying Out Now

For what it's worth, I'm originally from Staten Island, NY.

I am walking to my hometown of O'Fallon, MO from Howell, MI.

I miss life in Missouri and do not get enough chances to visit.

I am starting with my run today.

584 miles to go!

Mrs. Jones (Dana)

I never go running without my pearls on!

Don't give up what you want most for what you want for the moment.

If hunger is not the problem, food is not the answer.
