I was reading through the thread on Hygiene and noticed several references to stopping in the afternoon to wash or do laundry and at lease one reference to hanging-up Hiking clothes to dry prior to turning in. This all got me wondering how many hours do you hike a day and how do you split it up. Are you a early morning 10-hour person or a late starter? Do you do a split shift with one or more long(er) breaks in the middle? How close to dark do you push before making camp?

Just getting started here so I'm eager to learn by hearing other's mistakes
