      A Timex that Measures Your Speed and Distance
      Accurate enough to use to measure a walking event, easy enough to wear
      as a sports watch. It tells you how far and how fast you are walking -
      in kilometers or miles. This is the best walking gadget ever - or
      biking, running, skating, skiing.

      Walking Adventures International is currently running special offers on
      several of its 2002 volkswalking tours in Europe and the U.S. You could
      receive a discount of up to $200 if you act soon! Check it out at:
      How about a Route 66 Walking Adventure? We are thinking about planning a
      Route 66 Adventure around the 2003 AVA Convention in Colorado Springs,
      CO. If you would be interested, send us an email at
