Average step size
nice reply Jim.
I measured my pace years ago and it has not changed much overall. My
hiking partner and I can adapt to each other's step length with
reasonable ease(for no special reason) though there is about a foot
difference in our heights. When we are attentive, it is easy for us to
pace in 5 ft increments on reasonably level ground,so we can have a
rough estimate of distance if we want or need it.
