Formerly the Remote Non-synchronous Relay Walk. Formally the Peripatetic Persistent Pirate Puffins' Perpetual Peregrination*: Vladivostok to Kyiv by way of Philippine Sea to pick up The corpse in the library** 🐧. You say it takes 2472 hours of peregrination* to get from Tokyo to Vladivostok. The more you (dear reader) log your hours, the sooner we'll have gone the distance. Join any time. Track our progress. Still with our Official Puffin Mascot "S.F. Tokyo, Pirate" (they/them)!
- S.F. Tokyo, Pirate went in pelagic pursuit and placed The Corpse in the Library over in the Philippine Sea at the approximate coordinates of 20.491189121374756, 136.77834272415777 which is ~533 hours' perigrination* from Vladivostok according to Google Maps. Puffins of a feather plunder together! There's a map*** this time, so nobody gets lost unless they want to!

- PLAN: Pick up errant pirate, continue on toward Kyiv. Drop off donations for refugees.

Thanks for setting this up! Will the totals spreadsheet go up on the 30th or am I missing it somewhere?

I need to figure it out lesser weasel.

Everyone keep walking. You definitely motivate me.

Damnit - I keep forgetting this exists. It's fun! I'm not going to try to guess at months of unrecorded walking and gym stuff, but I do have actual data from kayaking.

I also forgot about this! Combed through Fitbit and added my hours.

I walked a mile, y'all! I thought I was gonna have to sit down in my neighbor's yard and maybe live there for a while but I did it!

For a second, I was expecting this to have been posted by Meatbomb.

Have forgotten to log for some time, but was reminded by the mention in the Strava post on MetaTalk. I have done a bit less regular walking since the dog I used to walk once a week died, but I have done a few longish walks with my father. Will try to get back into the habit of logging.

Oh dear, paduasoy. I am sorry for your loss. I am walking and also forgetting to log. Yikes

It's not really my loss, but the elderly friend whose dog it was has been in bits since then. I'm not a dog person, though so much time spent with any animal gives one some sort of feeling for it I think.

What I have been doing is trying to notice the sky and identify clouds when I walk, so the nacreous clouds post on MF has been good.
