Welcome. I usually put my steps in weekly but last month had a very busy one and only put them in twice. It is hard sometimes to get on the computer.

I do split the steps between walks but it is fun to join the group and see the sites. I love that this site has photos and history along the way.

Welcome to the group.

You can assign your steps to either individual walks or to group walks or a combination of both.

I put in my steps weekly, but most do it daily.

Hope this helps?

Thank you, Kerry!!!!

I will record my steps each week. I was walking a trail there by myself and WOW I was only 12% done and still had many steps/miles to go. Is each person putting their steps in daily? Is that how you are doing this? Do all the steps count towards the team or to each person?

Blessings!

Sounds fun. Unless they add all the parks together, it wouldn't do for us as a team to do them. Too short. They also have a new US walk that is vertical instead of horizontal on the map.

It would be fun if they had a walk from the north to south poles. We could almost do it on land which would be the preferred method.

We could also walk to the next olympics as there would be time to do it before the olympics next summer.

Since we count our steps collectively instead of individually, you can join at any point. Just join and log. They don't like you to log your steps on two sites for the same day, but you can join whenever you want/can.

Looking forward to seeing you on the trail.

Good morning ~

I looked back over the last few posts and it looks like you guys started a walk of the US a couple months back. Since it seemed a little late for me to join you all, I started a solo walk of Nova Scotia and will be posting my journey along the way here. It will take me 897,596 steps to complete. Hopefully I can meet up with you all on the next walk you choose. Happy trails!

QUESTION.. I'm new to this so figuring out the works. I have 19,277 steps banked but only 9,638 I can spend? Why can't I use them all?
Never mind I think I just figured it out.
I put 12,852 toward Bolivia and the rest to my solo walk.

I split my steps too - 10K for the 10K team walk and I'm still trying to get across America - Race Across USA - more like a turtle crawl, lol.

It's not a "race to the finish". It's a cooperative walk. Alone, it would be endless to walk these long walks. Walking with a team allows me go a long distance in a manageable amount of time. By myself I have walked a few solitary walks---California, San Francisco, the Great Wall of China. Both kinds of walks have their own charm.

That would not be fair to you...assuming that you are the first finisher. I just had not realized that the team walk was actually a race to the finish. emoticon

Sorry about that it just works out that way. I'll try to be more careful and split my steps so I don't finish up too early.

Yep, that's the way group walks work. I split my steps between the group and a solo walk so I can see everything on that walk.

I've started but I must admit that I find it a tad disconcerting that I am never allowed to "finish" the previous walk. Are we all done when the first person finishes?

Bolivia is 2 million steps and 7 milestones - Peru is 3 million steps and 9 milestones. The rest of the South America walks are either too short or too long with almost no milestones.

Right below the walks on the front page, is a box that says "Start New Walk" If you click on that you can search walks.

South America sounds like a good choice.

How about the Bolivia Walk?

I did Easter Island by myself awhile ago but it's too short for our group

I can't figure out how to see what's available - I did find the list of what the team has already done.

I don't think I saw anything from South America in the team done list - is there such a walk?

A walk of over two million steps is a good length. Lots of milestones are good. The last walk had seven milestones. Can we find something with more milestones?

I like the distances. If we walk the ones with more frequent milestones, the walks last such a short time. We walk enough to make the longer walks worthwhile. I'm for another long one.
