    will do. I can only text his mom, so not sure she'll get it, but I'll pass that on. Thanks!

    My guess is he'll go to Abol Bridge and sleep till timing is right, so he goes thru Kathadin Stream Campground early AM to summit. Also, his crew can enter the park at 6am. That would be ideal for...

    I'm thinking it's now 230pm at Joe Mary Road. 56 to go. Get to Pollywog stream tonight, which is about 32 miles to the summit of Kathadin. Sleep for 4-5 hours, then get up and finish it off. ...

    probably just older software. He's definately on the trail.....killing it.

    so awesome to watch him killing it. He's been focused on this thing for many years. Finally coming to fruition. He may not get Karel's time, but he's crushed everyone else...So cool...

    saddlebacks coming up, Sugarloaf, Crocker, then the Bigelow's. Once he's over the Bigs....it'll start to subside....slowly. He's getting close, We're watching one of the greatest AT runs of all...

    He's fallen a little behind my pace, but I encouraged him to not get so tied up in staying with me the first 18 days. I gave back about 2 full days of movement with some issues I had starting after...

    I spoke with Kristian the day after he stopped at a hotel near Route 103 in Vt. I encourage him to get back at it because of the very reason you mention. He is over 100 miles ahead of all the others...
  11. Speedgoat

    Kristian is rolling nicely. He's the real deal. Let's hope he can hang tough once he gets thru the junk of PA and NY. He'll have a little break on terrain, then we all know what lies ahead. ...

    go more stealth and just use a nice cushioned running shoe, and you'll be fine. You'll ruin your feet with five-fingers, and hiking boots are not necessary, they never are. my two cents.....

    All you need is more room in the toe box. Get a pair of shoes a half size bigger, that should help a ton.

    Well.....the guy is gonna need a trail name! Any ideas? How about TNG? (tough navy guy) :-) I think it's a hoax. Noone can be that silly and think with 32 pounds on his back and limited calories...

    It would be perfect to have a canoe at the Kennebec. I thought of that, and if I can arrange it, I"ll do it for sure. Not sure if I know anyone who can do that though, at least from Maine or NH. ...

    Bamboo, it's just a personal challenge. I am a mountain runner who loves the AT. Maine and NH being very difficult intrigues me to see how fast I can go this distance. My specialty is technical...

    I think I stopped at Pinkham Notch after 8 days, then on day 9, went over Washington, past Crawford Notch, and all the way to Route 93. 53 miles that day and took me 17 hours. Man, was I tired the...

    slo'go'en. Being only a one time fast gig, Jenns' time to Mt. Washington would get crushed by at least 2 days, easily. Now,I"m not saying I"m "gonna" do it, but I might try, and if I do try, I might...
  22. Kathadin summit to Mt. Washington summit, Fastest Known Time anyone?

    So I've been contemplating this one for a while. Because two months on the trail is alot for me right now, anyone know if there is a FKT for this brutal 300+ miles? I would imagine there is a...

    I would consider an "unsupported attempt" one that noone, helps the hiker anywhere "on the trail". If the said hiker hitches a ride to town to get supplies, it's still unsupported (in my opinion),...

    I think it can be organized, however, if the group is running/hiking, the trail and these folks pay someone for support, (like a race), then they need a permit to "have a race". If I got together...
