Wigd, I am going to guess 200 steps because that is how many days it is until our next trip to Disney.

Okay CP I gotta Christmas Closet too! Mine is a walk in under the stairs in my basement, it is starting to get too small, though, so now I have all my "faux" greenery in a big tree bag in our storage room! Did you take a picture in your TR? I gotta go see!

WIGD I am guessing it was a long walk. Kidani is very spread out... we walked some of it accidently last June.. so I say 174 steps....

we were only at Kidani long enough to have lunch at Sanna, but It was a huge resort, so I'm going to guess 156 steps!

I stayed at Kidani and something tells me that Shocker really isn't kidding.

Of course, since I have stayed at Kidani, with a car, I have to ask a clarification question. When you say the "main" elevator, do you mean the elevator in the lobby OR the closest elevator from the underground parking to your villa??? In my case, there was a HUGE difference. We were very close to the Timon 4 elevator, not so close to the elevators in the lobby and extremely far away when we ended up parking on the OTHER side of the lobby one night. That was probably......never mind, I'm not even going to guess how many steps that was!

Perhaps I am pumping for too much information, but you can't blame a girl for trying from there are prizes involved.

I can't get past the 3 BOXES of souvenires!! Do we get to see them all, huh? Huh?

As far as the contest, hmmmm..., I'm going to think positively. You got your request and had only 15 steps to go between elevator and villa.

I did hate it when I couldn't get on the DIS! I think I will be better when we get back from break. At the start of the year I had 25 2nd graders with 14 IEP's (special ed), including one full time autistic child. Suffice to say that my principal had to move some kids...then one of the teacher assts. assigned to my room got arrested and charged with child molestation:: What a nightmare! Combine all of that with 2 new programs implemented by my division, regular classroom paperwork and preparation, and oh ya, that's right, I do have two kids of my own who need mom! I just ran out of time (and brain cells) and the DIS is something that got left behind.
[/quote]
I started the year out with 20 2nd graders. Just a couple with speech IEPs, one gifted, and one behavior. I do have a good mix of high, medium and low kids. Honestly it's a great class!
How on earth did you get your group, did you make someone mad?
I can't imagine what you went through with the T.A. being arrested, and the new programs. I do know how the paperwork can bog you down though...

Just be prepared for teenage stuff, although I've seen some pretty good 4 year old fits too! Sorry to laugh, but when I see other people's kids having meltdowns it makes me feel just a little more normal!

I have no clue and have never been to Kidani.

I will guess 217. Everyone else is guessing low so I will throw it in space.

Wait....I reserve the right to second guess my guess based on a question.

Whose steps?

Mine


Quote:
You are way shorter than Mark. So it may make a difference.

There is logistics that go into guessing ya know.

Dan also has a guess and will post in a bit. He wants to know if the person counting steps was behind Keeley so that said person was perhaps taking shorter steps as they were faux tukkus kicking her from behind.

If I were behind Carsyn for example and pretending to kick her tukkus as I walked, my stride would be different than a normal gait.
He and I were walking together, just us, no tuckus kicking or even pretend kicking at the time...

Quote:
Also, was the official steps counter carrying bags? This might mean a person would lean to one side and again, alter the gait that they normally would have.
Not sure about the bags but probably yes due to the amount of shopping done on this trip.

Quote:
How bout a sense if the person was full or not. If said counter had just rolled out of Boma's and had increased their portly capacity another 3-4 lbs or so, it could easily counter their pace. Esp. if the beans they serve had time to seek havoc on the gut.
Don't think I ate any beans, but there was a good chance we had been eating, we did a bunch of that on this trip!

Quote:
I mean you are talking quite a bit of latitude between the holding jeans walk because you had to unbutton them because you stuffed yourself (not that I would know this ) which is slow and purposeful. Then You have the "OMG I need a lavatory pronto" canter before your TR is called "The GREAT BEAN Debacle of 2009" and you are trucking those tootsies in rapid succession, practicing your lamaze breathing even if you have never been pregnant or are a man.
Most days I wore fleece or sweats, no binding waist band to deal with.....

Quote:
So there are a few questions to help us who are just in it for fun and not competitive at all.
IF the kids had come over to play you would have had a real advantage..... maybe that's a good thing though, I would have hated to have disqualified you.
