Haven't checked in for awhile. Today I passed the 1000 mile marker. Enjoying the virtual walk. Is there anyone else going my way?

Just 0.2 mile from mile 27. Love the pictures as we go along. Doing all my walking early in the am due to the heat. Love to walk in the morning.

I agree, it's more fun when you're walking with someone else, even if it is virtual. I actually do well in winter cause we winter in Florida and most days I can walk. I am finding this summer that I need to walk early cause it gets too warm later. That's not a usual problem for us up here. We live near Lake Huron and usually have a cooling breeze with a hot day here and there. This year we've have lots of hot days already. Keep on walking!

Right there with you! I do much better in the spring/summer than in the winter. My pace drops quite a few miles. I try to sneak in extra steps wherever possible in the summer! I am at mile 131. Today we are walking on the top of a mountain in the clouds! Keep posting, it is fun to follow fellow walkers!

Barb,it would be great to meet on the trail but you're far ahead of me since I just started yesterday and have done 7.6 miles so far. Love the idea of having somewhere to walk to at my pace.

So excited to find this group. I've been looking for a virtual destination for some time. Used to live near the AT and have hiked short parts of it -- now for the whole thing. Using walking4fun. I'm planning on 1 1/2 years or so but that's okay with me.

At mile 113.6. My first 100 miles in! I'm so glad this is a virtual hike - it's been raining. The trail looks rather like a stream and the shelter was full, so it was sleeping outdoors in the rain under the tarp. I hate wet clothes and squishy wet shoes! However, on I walk!
