There was one but I think it died. I know that I was keeping up with it for a while early in 2008, but I fell away from it. I started keeping track of minutes instead of miles. But I definitely LOVED the idea of it! Maybe you could start a new one for this year!!

In fact... maybe I will buy/print myself an east coast map and put it on the wall in my room and start tracking my mileage on it... kind of like an AAA tripticket!! It would be a fun visual!

I'll keep my eyes open in case you decide to go ahead and start a new thread!.........P

I don't see her on my facebook page either. Anyway, my plan is to walk to Disney and I have to double check, but I think it is 1187 miles. I am going to start today.

Sorry, I was monitoring the thread just to see how you folks were doing..... It's a great idea.

The OP of the original Walking to Disney thread put a lot of personal information in her posts, and she was a travel agent so it's quite possible they poofed the thread because that can be considered selling something/conflict of interest.

I suggest we just make this be the thread.

I am 659 miles from my door to the Caribbean Beach Resort (Aruba Village )

Today I walked 3 miles.

1/1: 659-3=656

January Total: 3 miles
Total: 3 miles; 0.4% complete

I'm so glad I wasn't hallucinating! I replied and remember the thread was pretty long Anyway, I'm 1458 miles and today biked 10 miles towards WDW!!!!! Count me in and as my dh says, it's more like a triathalon for me in that I will count walking, biking, swimming, elliptical... hope that's okay, but I'm at a point where knees are an issue for walking/running only.
