Well the board is 14 tiles long, and each tile is ~2 feet long. There are six rounds in a game, three toss up and 3 regular, and each is at least 2 rows long. Now because each problem has different locations of guessed letters and different lengths of words, I'm gonna assume that each problem has ~15 characters. If Vanna has to walk a maximum of 56 feet (from her position to the board and back) and a minimum of 0 feet, the median length she walks is 28 feet per round. Thats about 168 feet a game. There are 200 shows in a season, and Vanna has been on the show 32 years. That's 6400 shows, at 168 feet a show, totaling 1,075,200 feet in her career. 5280 feet in a mile, so 2083 miles have been walked
