    We have a private cabin. But yeah, I would be sleeping in my hiking clothes. Eyes open, shoes on, out the door. Eat on the go. I've done this a couple times.

    Especially in June ;-). 10 by 10. 20 by 4. 30 by 9. Slow and steady wins the race. It always comes out to close to 2 MPH for me (including breaks).

    I took speed hiking to mean covering more than average/normal/typical in a day. Since we tend to measure AT miles in days. 25-30 miles per day is speedier than typical.

    I thought it was the Trail Running and SPEED HIKING forum ;-). I'll average my 2 mph. A 30 mile day is 15 hours of hiking. Call it 16 with breaks. I don't hike faster, just longer. I've got some...

    Probably not getting on trail until lunchtime day 1 so 16 is probably best I can shoot for... As for night hiking -- I don't like to hike after sundown but love it BEFORE sun up....

    He's 6'4'', lean, and strong. He's 10-15 years younger than Annish and Speedgoat. From what I can tell, he's the youngest/fittest/strongest guy to attempt this thing. He hiked 3-4 mph for 16-20...

    I think his only significant delay was the Kennebec River Ferry, but there were a couple of times he had to race to get to a resupply location before it closed. Stuff like that. Oh, come to think...

    It's actually a "self-supported" hike. Unsupported means you take everything you are going to need (all food) and don't do any resupplying while under way.
