I am traveling through British Columbia.
BC - 2,700 km or 1,677 miles (approx. 3,354,000 steps)

September 27......7.04 miles (14,868.48 steps)

TOTAL MILES TRAVELED SO FAR.....196.38 miles

MILES LEFT TO GO ACROSS THE PROVINCE = 1,480.62

If God gives us what he thinks we can handle, He must think I'm a BadAss.

Stop being afraid of what could go wrong and start being excited about what could go right.

Your body can stand almost anything. It's your mind that you have to convince.

I need to try to catch up with my logging sooner or later, but I am getting lots of walking in!

Hi, I am Janette, I live in Escondido, CA. I visited Canada once in 1976 when I was 16 years old. I loved it. I will look at the trails and see which looks similar to where I visited then. Okay I am going to start with: [BC - 2,700 km or 1,677 miles (approx. 3,354,000 steps)] {I always do at least 30 mins of PT-yoga like stretching each day that won't be turned into miles or steps}:
August 1: 5.54 Miles
August 2: 3.51 = 9.05
August 3: 5.55 = 14.60
August 4: 3.09 = 17.69
August 5: Rest day and or didnít do regular tracking this day.

August 23: Rest day and or didnít do regular tracking this day.
August 24: 3.03 = 76.21
August 25: Rest day and or didnít do regular tracking this day.
August 26: 5.02 = 81.23
August 27: 7.02 = 88.25
August 28: 5.02 = 93.27
August 29: 3.52 = 96.79
August 30: Rest day and or didnít do regular tracking this day.
August 31: 6.05 miles = 102.84

September 1: Rest day and or didnít do regular tracking this day.
September 2: Rest day and or didnít do regular tracking this day.
September 3: Rest day and or didnít do regular tracking this day.
September 4: 6.05 miles = 108.89

Whether starting fresh or continuing...

Choose a Province you wish to walk across from the list below. Each day record how many steps, miles and/or km you have covered by walking or running. (Biking may be an option too.) Take that number and subtract it from the total. You can track your distance using a pedometer, google maps or similar options that give you the approximate distance. *See below.*

Trans Canada Trail

Alberta - 2,200 km or 1,367 miles (approx. 2,734,000 steps)
BC - 2,700 km or 1,677 miles (approx. 3,354,000 steps)
New Brunswick - 820 km or 509 miles (approx. 1,018,000 steps)
Ontario - 4,000 km or 2,485 miles (approx. 4,970,000 steps)
Quebec - trails in progress, currently approx. 1,200 km or 745 miles (approx. 1,490,000 steps)
(see www.canadatrails.ca/tct/tctqc.html )
Manitoba - 1,188 km or 738 miles (approx. 1,476,000 steps)
Nova Scotia - 700 km or 434 miles (approx. 868,000 steps)
Newfoundland & Lab - 900 km or 559 miles (approx. 1,118,000 steps)
Northwest Territories - 640 km (for land, 4,000 km for water) or 397 miles (for land, 2,485 miles for water) (approx. 794,000 steps)
Nunavut - in progress
PEI - 350 km or 217 miles (approx. 434,000 steps)
Saskatchewan - 1,400 km or 869 miles (approx. 1,738,000 steps)
Yukon - 1,600 km or 994 miles (approx. 1,988,000 steps)

TOTAL trail length = 15,718 km or 9,766 miles (approx. 19,532,000 steps)

(Above calculations are based on the average of 2000 steps per mile.)

I googled and I think I found some maps of the gardens that we visited back in 1976, I will try to add them.



I could only get the Van Dusen Botantic garden to open, not the Queen Elizabeth Park. I will look for other images.

NEXT STOP.....HOPE TO KAMLOOPS 121 miles

TODAY'S MILES: 6.38 miles


MILES LEFT TO GO ACROSS THE PROVINCE = 1,578.21

If God gives us what he thinks we can handle, He must think I'm a BadAss.

Stop being afraid of what could go wrong and start being excited about what could go right.

NEXT STOP.....HOPE TO KAMLOOPS 121 miles

TODAY'S MILES: 2.17 miles


MILES LEFT TO GO ACROSS THE PROVINCE = 1,584.59


If God gives us what he thinks we can handle, He must think I'm a BadAss.

Stop being afraid of what could go wrong and start being excited about what could go right.

Your body can stand almost anything. It's your mind that you have to convince.

If only I could actually do all this walking along the roads and trails.
But No! Most of this is all done working in a small kitchen.

So using Homebody4ever numbers Victoria to Nanaimo is 88 miles. I have six miles to walk to reach Nanaimo and to continue on the Transcanada Trail.

Ladysmith is 55 miles from Victoria .....

Campbell River is still 92 miles to walk.. and only eight days before I begin the mini vacation there







I hope I remember correctly.. and this train is in Ladysmith.
I love trains. Iíll stop and take photos whenever I can. At this location I was also looking for another geocache

Activity: 16,865 steps (7.8 miles)

#1
Trail: Pacific Crest Trail
Done: 1,115.6 miles
To-Do: 1,573.9 miles

#2 Hiking Canada
Victoria to Campbell River = 164 miles
Since August 10 when I began I have walked 30 miles .
This means I need to walk 134 miles yet to reach Campbell River.









Once upon a time I lived just a few miles from Chemainus in a little town called Crofton.
Crofton I still remember like it was yesterday waking up and looking out the window the first morning after moving in and seeing this Wall. It wasnít there before. It magically appeared over night. Iím smiling as I remember this.. I had nevered lived next to an ocean before ... over night an ocean liner ship came into port and docked. It was huge and from my window it looked like a wall.
Another morning ... I wake up to have a crab walking across my bedroom floor.. How - Where did that come from. The day before I was out walking along the beach collecting shells. Some how in one of my empty shells had become home to my crab who now was heading back to the ocean.

Between Crofton and Chemainus there is a beautiful warmish river that people would tube.
This has been the only time I have ever drifted down a river on a huge tractor tire. Awesome, memories.

Iím not done with memories yet... at the camp where I worked the theatre actors of the Chemainus Theatre would come and practice at the Camp. Staff would often get free tickets to the theatre. I love the theatre .

Chemainus is a beautiful place to walk around and look at the murals .. my photos donít do them justice.
I also remember going to this little diner just on a side street that had the best clam chowder I have ever eaten. ( I wonder if it is still there? Probably Not so long ago )

Traveling two trails at once ... gotta love the virtual life eh!

Starting in Victoria BC Iím heading north to Campbell River. This will take me right pass Nanaimo. Why ? Because August 29 Iím going there on vacation. From there I will just walk around BC exploring as I make my way to the East Coast.

My other walk on Walk4fun is on the ....
Pacific Crest Trail
Done: 1,106.2 miles
To-Do: 1,583.3 miles

Canada .. I love my country. I was born in Kingston Ontario and have lived in Saskatchewan, Alberta and BC. I have traveled coast to coast in real life. Never been to the Northern parts though.. someday. So as I walk I probably will have photos or stories to tell..

Victoria to Campbell River 164 miles.
As of today I need to walk 144 miles to reach Campbell River











I have a story about here.. my wife and I went to Victoria, we had booked our room but ended up going a day early.. itís the capital so there should not be a problem getting a room ... how wrong can one be. What we didnít realize was that a special convention was going on... all the hotels in Victoria were full ... No Vacancy! We had to drive almost back to Nanaimo to find a room here in Cowichan Bay . An expensive room at that. Our room in Victoria was available the next day when the convention ended. ( so Iím not making that mistake again, I have booked our hotel in Campbell River and our ferries to and from the island.. it is a Long-weekend and Iím not going early)

My progress across Canada... it wonít be straight and quick but Iím on my way.
So much to see and do in Victoria. When we were there we went whale watching, walked all around the downtown area and ,the inner harbour. Listened to street musicians and went into the mini museum. We also went inside the Parliament building.

Mini Museum

VICTORIA TO NANAIMO

BC - 2,700 km or 1,677 miles (approx. 3,354,000 steps)



Victoria is the western end of the Trans-Canada, and once you leave this relaxed low-density community, you drive over the Malahat Highlands, with it heavily forested areas and then through coastal lowlands with wineries and farms, and the pretty towns of Chemainus, Duncan, and Ladysmith, before ending up at the ferry terminus to the mainland in Nanaimo.

How far did you go today?
