I think May 1st would be good. Hopefully our east coast weather will be coopeartive with our journey.

Anyone "on the in" with Mother Nature?

I'd love to join in too but step counters don't like me, I have broken 2 of then. Can we track mileage instead? Is there an easy way to convert for you who count steps?
What I do is go to MapMyRun.com , mark my route on the map or Googlearth, and it gives me the distance in miles (could prolly convert to kms but other Spark places use miles). This is useful for pretending you are walking the Trans Canada trail (or in my case through Middle Earth).

I don't have a pedometer but plan on buying one.
Our Walmart was out.
I think that's a great idea.

The step measuring is a good idea. Let me know if we go ahead with it.

Hello Sparking2Live;
I like your challenge idea as well. It wouldn't take much to just measure & record how many steps each of us take each day, and then figure out how far the total distance was.

Glenda that sounds like a good challenge as well and will get everyone in the habit of coming in and checking in.

I like it...I'll give it my best shot tomorrow.

I just created a new topic called Daily Check-In.
Maybe that could be a challenge for April/May, reporting everyday?
lol

Why not an East Coast Step challenge?

For example, how many steps would it take to walk across NB, PEI, NS, does anyone know?

Then each month, say starting in May we can try, as a group, to reach the amount of steps to walk across a certain province.

Thougts? I'll say this now, I don't have the time to be responsible for this if everyone likes it, unfortunately (school till mid-June).

That is my two cents worth.
