    Default Mount Washington to Mount Katahdin in 8 days?

    Penobscot Chief Barry Dana is planning to do this hike, covering 39 miles per day!

    “The more arduous the journey, the stronger the prayer,” said Phillips, 77, a tribal elder.

    I have no experience yet up North but this sounds like a dream hike. Good luck!

    What a truly terribly written article, on a site with more advertisements than can be counted. Regardless, good for him!

    I agree!... on both.

    ATDIST.com has Mt. Washington to Katahdin at 332.9 miles. The article has it at 261.

    "After leaving from Mount Washington on Aug. 26, Barry Dana completed the 261 miles of the Appalachian Trail between Mount Washington and Mount Katahdin in eight days,"

    So, Barry, what did you see on your hike?
