Over 26 000 kilometers currently traveled
Across Nation Effort..
11 421 KM walked over 15 million steps.
Doing more kilometers meant I could reach more people.
Stepping for every impact.
What is the Weight of your Steps? What will be your impact?
Here are my daily bests from all the provinces I walked across.
Some of which, with an over 400 + lbs trailer in tow.
British Columbia - 59 km Mt.Robson to just inside the border
Alberta - 60 km Edmonton to Elk Lake
Saskatchewan - 60 km Maymont to Langham
Manitoba - 54 km Shoal Lake to a rest stop outside Minnidosa
The rest were set with the 200+lbs jogging stroller.
Newfoundland - 59 km Stephenville exit to Midway Motel
Nova Scotia - 57 km Baddeck to North Sydney ferry
Prince Edward Island - 64 km Wood Island to the east side of Charlottetown
New Brunswick - 57 km Welsford to Burton
Quebec - 64 km Montebello to Gatineau
Ontario - 74 km Kingston to Bellville.
This all done with making calls to the media, talking with people, dealing with weather and looking for food water and shelter.
The land bent and folded me like in the makings of a sword,
and the people I met gave me the materials to withstand the impact.
