We are going on the Disney Alaskan cruise in 2011. I have to walk from San Antonio to Vancouver in 535 days...That's 2625 miles, almost 5 miles a day. I hope I can do it.

Wow nice to see this come up again. I did this a few years back. Although I never met my goal I will try again.

I am 1345 miles away from my home away from home. Pop Century.

I am with you with this one. I was planning on counting biking as well. I know what you mean about the knees. I had surgery for a torn meniscus last year and sometimes it does still act up.

Are you wearing step counters and counting all walking done during the day, or just walking that you do on top of regular errands and walking around the house?

I'm just going to use the miles I walk on the treadmill or when I go outside for walks..........I've actually have given up on pedomoters...... I haven't been able to find one that lasts and that doesn't give me steps when I"m sitting down...............

Go to google maps or mapquest or something and use the "get directions" feature. Start with your house and end with someplace in WDW. It will give you the number of miles from your house to your selected location in WDW.

Then, just walk/bike/swim that number of miles. It helps if you divide the total miles by 365 to see how many miles/per day you need in order to pace yourself.

I'm in for this challenge.

I have 2/1095 to Fort Wilderness as of today.

I have been wearing my pedometer for a while now. I will be counting what I do during the day. I have been averaging 4000 while I have been on vacation. Will be trying for 10,000 starting next week.
