    Sorry to hear about your dog!

    You can use Google Earth for a quite accurate distance. Or a routing program if you stay on roads. I use MapSource on my computer to calculate the distance on shorter walks. For longer walks I use a GPS receiver. You could use your phone if it has a GPS receiver.

    I am thinking about buying a small, simple GPS logger to log all my walks.

    you should get another dog and walk again

    and the 'runkeeper' app for android is very strong and accurate, it will keep track of all your kilometers.

    I walk an hour a day, about 4 miles, in everything but wind driven precipitation. That I did for a living for a time and still enjoy not doing it. I incorporate it into my commute by walking from work toward home before hopping on the subway w/ the route mainly through parks or plazas so I can keep the pace up. This I have done for a long time, well before discovering PB.

    Once developed as a habit you'll miss not doing it. Very meditative, works out any kinks or tightness, connects you with the seasons and weather, gets you out in the sun and I think delimits how fat you can get if other things are not in line. And it's one thing I prefer to do when it's cold.

    Figure I've been doing it for 12 years that's a good 27,000 kilometers give or take, it's no wonder I wear sneakers out at such a clip. Prior to that I carried mail on foot for 11 years which would make the total some astounding number, but for those miles I was paid
