    Congrats to Nancy and Chris! They announced finishing and setting a new FKT of 29d10h today. I did my best to keep track of their progress, but might need to reconcile some of these numbers below....

    Good point. This can't be rushed. JC13 is right too, Nancy and Chris get the FKT completion if the trails remain closed. Besides, if their lead stays at 48+ hours, less than a dozen miles wouldn't...

    Interesting discussion. Both Joe's self-supported AT and LT FKTs are mind-blowing. I don't see it being a big deal that he accepted some water from a hiker on his LT FKT. However, given his dramatic...

    Etnier's book is a convenient place to start if pondering a go at the GSMNP 900. I picked up a copy back around 2010. Nice to have a well-organized itinerary spelled out, even if it's over 100 miles...
