    What kind of vacuum

  • Canada Doug McManaman

    I believe what the moderators meant is that u cant touch the vacuum cleaner while walking . I only touch it when i stopped to turn and i am only credited with the distance walked .

    My thoughts on this are that if i was outdoors or in a room where i could keep walking then yes i wouldnt have to turn so i will abide by the moderators as to what the record should read .thanks.

    dont you have to do it continusely you stoped and started again...

  • Canada Doug McManaman

    yes i see what you mean could this be done with 2 different records stopping and not stopping what you think.

    Doug, I love this record. Question: it felt like a bit of a cheat to take the cleaner off your chin and rest during the attempt. I suggest we either reduce your distance to 25 feet, or add rules which clearly state that "resting is permitted", though that feels much less elegant. Thoughts?
