First off, many many thanks to Wes who on his own initiative and due to his own generosity collected my key trail data into a spreadsheet --- wonderful.
I started on April 27th from the southern PCT terminus near the Mexican Border and finished at the northern Terminus at the Canadian border on Sept 16th, then after 7 days off I did the parts I had skipped due to fires in California, with final finish on Oct 4th.So 161 total days, from April 27 to Oct 4th
Since I walked the whole trail, total mileage walked ended right about at 2664. There are some pluses there but they balance out pretty well.Using 145 days and 2664 miles, that averages to about 18.4 miles per day.
Apart from the two big chunks of time off, I took a total of 13 Zero days, at each of:Warner Springs, Agua Dulce, Mojave, Kennedy Meadows, Independence (2), Mammoth Lakes (2), Seiad Valley, Ashland, Snoqualmie Pass, and Stehekin (2) FWIW, if all zero's were removed, but Nero's kept in, I had 132 days where I did at least some hiking each day, and my per-day mileage for those 132 days was 20.2 miles per day
That included 12 Nero days of 10 miles or less and another 12 Nero days of 10 to 15 miles.
There are perhaps a host of other potential statistics, but the above are what seemed obvious to me from the data I have available. If someone reading this has others to suggest, please post in my guestbook!
