    Have you ever figured out how many miles you walk in a 8 hour day. Especially behind a 21 inch. Thinking about getting a step counter to figure it out. Doing this for almolst 10 years and have always been curious.

    I wore a pedometer one season and averaged 7-10 miles a day, generally 4-6 days a week, depending on the weather.
