Onward to Thailand!

Alright. As you can see on the right of the page, I've added a new widget/chart/whatever-you-want-to-call-it. This relates to our family's challenge, entitled "Onward to Thailand." We have challenged ourselves (or, to put it another way, my oldest sister Lorri challenged the family and we accepted) to walk, bike, swim, run, and so forth until we have "walked to Thailand." Lorri tells us that it is 8670 miles from Fanwood, New Jersey to Bangkok, Thailand, give or take about 5 miles. It might take us the whole mission to do it, but we really want to rack up all those miles before Abbie completes her mission.
Anyone who would like to help may do so. The easiest way to do that is to post a comment to any post on the blog telling me how many new miles you've walked/biked/swum/etc. I'll take that amount and add it to whichever row you belong to. You can count your kids' mileage as well unless they're in a stroller.
And now! Onward to Thailand!


  1. I have walked 10 miles so far.

  2. As of 5/21 I've run 65.79 miles. I'll talk with Lorri and update my walking/biking miles at some point. Thanks for adding this to the blog!

  3. Also, from 5/1-5/14 here are the miles that Lorri had recorded:
    Linden 3.4, Delsa 5.5, Jon 21, Sam 26.3

  4. I have 5.5 for the first week, 11 for the second week.
