How far did we walk?

End of Week 4 of the Spring into Action Fitbit Challenge and the results are in!

We walked 912 total miles!

During this Walking the World Challenge, we will see how many times we can criss-cross the awesome United States of America.
Week 1 we started in Seattle, WA, hiked through Oregon and Idaho, passed through corners of Wyoming and Utah to reach our Week  1 destination of beautiful Boulder, Colorado.
Week 2 we started in Boulder, CO, walked to Omaha, NE and across a bridge named Bob, learned about Eden Prairie, MN, visited the Mall of America in Minneapolis (BTW its 25 years old this year) and visited Waukesha, WI aka Guitar Town on the way to the Brookfield, WI office.
Week 3 we started at the Brookfield Office and since the weather was nice and spring was upon us, we trekked north the the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and visited scenic Manistique, MI and Mackinac Island. We turned south and hiked through lower Michigan, then turned east to Toronto. We followed the St. Lawrence Seaway and reached our final destination, Quebec.
Week 4 we started in Quebec City to Madawaska, Maine, down the eastern seaboard to Boston, New York City and ending in Philadelphia.

On the way, we walked to Aroostook County, Maine

Larger than four states, The County, as Aroostook is known best, is the northernmost region in the state of Maine. Bordered on three sides by Canada,the natural setting of the region makes it splendid for long getaways, including any number of outdoor activities. Snowmobiling is very popular in the winter.

  • Aroostook is Maine’s largest county and region.
  • Most of its area is filled with woods and beautiful waterways.
  • The primary industry is potato harvesting. However, outdoor enthusiasts will enjoy the remote camping opportunities, fishing, hunting and snowmobiling.
  • With Canada directly across the border of most of this regions towns, you can make your visit into an International one.
