The Snow Is Gone!


Well I finally got around to putting in my itinerary for this summer. The form on this website lets you list your resupply location, the miles between each of them, and how many days you plan between each resupply point. It then calculates average miles per day, cumulative miles, etc. and creates a table of your trip. The minor drawback is that it is off a little. Just a couple of days over the whole trek, but it is not quite accurate.

That said, you can take a look at it by clicking Journal Plan toward the bottom of the yellow box on the left of this screen.

You may notice that a few of the numbers are flagged in red. This indicates an ambitious schedule and possibly too many miles to walk in the time allotted. I am aware of this, but I plan to give it a shot anyway. No risk, no gain.

Overall, I am pretty happy with this schedule, and, although I probably wont change much in the timing, there are numerous refinements and sub plans to make. For instance where to send resupply packages-hotel or PO, what permits do I need to get, etc. So there is still a lot of detail work to be done.

Until next week -Happy Trails
