I've been "walking" in Ryan's steps for quite a while now. My first hike was the Pacific Crest. I did a lot of others, most recently the Long Trail, and now I'm on the Appalachian.

Walking4Fun really is fun! I look forward to logging in every night. Some people from my real-life walking club did some day hikes recently. I was surprised to see a couple pictures they took that were similar to Ryan's photos in the same location, specifically, the feral hog trap.

I don't remember who, but someone from a couple years ago, mentioned on the log that there were SparkPeople on there, and that's why I looked SP up on the team. I've been on Spark for nine years, I think.

Hi! My name is Sharon and a friend first introduced me to the Walking4Fun website over 4.5 years ago. I've gone on several virtual hikes since then. The trail I'm currently on is Chemin Le Puy, which I started three months ago. What I like the most is that it brings the numbers on my pedometer to life. It's because the photos make me feel like I'm going somewhere instead of "just" around my neighborhood or at an indoor walking track.

Hi Joyce!

I enjoy your quote posts on the wall. I look forward to hearing more about you and your family (including your pets) as well.

Let us know when you finish the PCT, that is awesome! Such a long trail too. I have been on it a couple times on Walking4Fun, but I am no where near completing it.

What is world walking? Tell us more about that one.

What is your name on Walking4Fun?

Hi my name is Joyce, been a member of sparks since 2013 but didn't get active until mid 2014. In May I started the Pacific Crest Trail, our bishop and his wife did the trail (for real) from Oregon border to Canadian border, so I checked it out on line and found walk 4 fun. I started the trail, at first I just logged miles from exercise walking but now I am synced with my fitbit, I am 99.7% complete. so excited to finish. I also do world walking and just finished going Across America.
The virtual walks keeps me motivated.

I am married, we will be celebrating 55 years in Feb, we have 3 adult children, 10 grandchildren and 5 great grandchildren. We have 1 fur baby Kayla, she is a King Charles Cavalier and is 3 years old, we have an African Gray, Robbie he is 13 years old, and Candy, a Caique, and she is 2 years old. We live on the Oregon coast and love it here.

Very happy to be part of the team.

Thelma here...and out there getting steps on the Walk4Fun site....right now doing the Appalachian Trail...yeah!!!! WHAT THE HECK WAS I THINKING??.
I'm a wife of 46 yrs, a mother to one son, grandmother to 2, step grandmother to 2, and in April became a Great Grandmother to a precious little girl with red hair. Live in the country and love it. Have breakfast while watching the deer, rabbits,squirrels, and birds right outside the enclosed patio windows...a wonderful way to start the day wouldn't you say?
Looking forward to getting to know the team.....let's get these sneakers laced up and get to walking! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

I'm MaryAlice. Live in the country. My address says Alvin TX, but that is just were my mail comes from. About 1/2 my steps are walking the dog, 6 miles a day.

I'm 63 and find walking in the dark very relaxing. Out here where there are no street lights sidewalks it is just me, Mutt and the moon. I'm a cleanup bookkeeper for a tax accountant and anything that helps me relax is good. Besides I've lost over 50 pounds and the first 25 I lost walking. Then I added other exercises.

Yes, that would be super cool to meet up someday!

I am just coming back to say that my name is Nelly Doolittle on the W4F website (and I think that is the same name I use for both FitBit and Misfit, so feel free to add me!)

I did switch over to the Tahoe Trail, so I will certainly try and catch up to you all!

Good morning everyone!

Sorry that I'm a bit late coming to the party, but I certainly wanted to let you know that I'm here.

My name is Ronnie, and I also live in NE Ohio (Youngstown), but I was born & bred in New England (Providence born, and lived in Boston for many, many, many years). I am 44 years young, and have 3 children (1 son, 2 daughters; they don't live with me though). Married and have one 10 month old Brittany Spaniel named Chaco (whom I affectionately call Chaco Taco from Morocco).

While it is my real goal to at least see a portion of all 50 states (well, the ones I haven't lived in or visited), this virtual walking will make me feel like I'm reaching my goal a lot faster, LOL.

I forgot which trail I started off on, but I will certainly try and join up with you all on the Tahoe Trail. emoticon

HI Judy!

Glad you can join us, and try the Tahoe Trail with us.

I visited Vermont this past winter and skied at Smuggler's Notch. Vermont was very pretty.

Hi Everyone,
My name is Darlene and I live in East Texas (the area with lots and lots of trees). I have been a memeber of SP for quite a while. I am 64 years old and am a retired RN. My DH and I moved here from Florida when I retired and live on a farm that my aunt and uncle own. Have our own house and my mother lives with us. We love it here.

I started doing the Wonderland Trail on May 1st, but am only 37% finished, so am going to put it on the back burner and start the new trail June 1. I aim for 6,000 steps a day, but am usually more around 4,000,

I'm looking forward to getting to know everyone and having fun on this new site.

Darlene (Hibiscus 52)

I can do this, and WE can do this.

Hello, I love the "Walk for Fun Virtual trails" and almost finished with the Scottish Highlands Trail. Have been with Sparkpeople for several years (2007) and have enjoyed each year with them. From my user name you can see I live in Missouri. I have been diagnosed with COPD and use supplemental oxygen. Still work outside the home and try to be as active as possible as the pulmonary rehab providers stress exercise on a daily basis. Check out my Sparkpage to learn more about me and my family. Glad I found this team!

Hi Michelle!

I also live in Ohio -- in the Dayton area. I agree, Ohio has great metroparks and state parks. I love hiking and geocaching and try to get out on the weekends when I can.

I'm Michelle & I live in Ohio. I hike different hiking trails around me about 5 days a week. I'm very lucky to live in an area with a lot of metro parks & I'm also not far from the lake.

Hey Nola

Welcome to the walk4fun. Paula is hanging around the AT while I finish up with Wonderland Trail which hopefully will be next week so we can all begin the Tahoe Rim trail. I think should be more fun hiking as a group on same trail. I see so many awesome views traveling solo. Hard to share in words.

I am Nola. I am now retired (disabled) andI I'm 64 years old. I and have been a member of SP since July 2014. I love SP and all the SparkFriends I have met along this journey. I especially love the Walking4Fun virtual walks. I have two bad knees, even though I had a total right knee done. I am also experiencing bone on bone pain on the left knee. There are some days I cannot walk much at all! I also suffer from arthritis in both hands. I feel like I'm falling apart slowly! :D

I like to read, listen to music, play my ukulele, ride my horse Charlie Brown and camp with horsey friends, and walk my dogs and play frisbee. I also work on the farm doing most of the outside chores. I fix fences, drag, chop tree limbs and cut trees down and mow the five acres.

My name is Nola
I live in Chiefland, FL - EST

Nice to meet you Lois!

Good for you on your recovery! I am well-bodied :) but work at a sedentary job, and it is a challenge to get 10,000 steps a day. But that is pretty much always my goal. Sometimes I make it, sometimes I don't. But I do think that seeing the photos in w4f will push me just a little more. I love my fitbit and play fitbit challenges with some friends too.

I live in Ohio. I love hiking outside, anywhere, anytime. But when that is not possible, I walk in my house and around the office building.

Hi, I recently discover walk4fun website and LOVE it. It motivates me to walk further each day so I can see more photos of where I am on the trail. I started on AT and after 77 miles and still in GA I was beginning to get bored. Realized after the fact it was going to take me a year to complete. So I temporarily left it and moved over to complete Crater Lake. Loved every minute of it. I'm not familiar with Pacific NW and this beautiful area is striking to me. I am currently hiking Wonderland Trail around Mt. Ranier. I'm at 50 mile marker.

Last year at this time I was hobbling around with bad knee awaiting total knee replacement. Took a long while to recover and get back. Apparently I am competitive as I love to set a goal and complete it. Due to my situation, my DH is in w/c and because of a health scare last fall I am frightened to leave him home alone for too long so I can't wander too far from the house. I live on 1/2 mile circle and do the loop over and over a gazillion times a day. During my recovery my goal was to reach 10,000 steps a day. Reached that and since joining walking4fun I do between 6 - 8 miles day
