29 Notes: 0 0 0 This is just a tentative plan. Once on trail where I actually walk and resupply is anyones guess. I have attempted to estimate distances based on the various resources availiable. It is most likely a very conservative figure. I just ne
30 and Notes 0 0 0 I also have attempted to find routes that provide the most miles beyond a resupply town before actually going in to resupply. This hopefully means less miles walked with a full pack.
31 More Notes 0 0 0 I am aware there are many other resupply locations between what I have listed. Since my strategy is mostly "buy as I go" I will take advantage of any opportunities to "NOT" carry 150 miles worth of supplies at a time if possible.
32 Zero Days 0 0 17 I estimated zero days just to keep track/estimate of my total number of days for the hike. I have no idea where and when I will zero.
33 Total Days 0 0 150 5 months is pretty ambitious. The idea is to make a plan that allows me to estimate when to send my flat rate boxes and early enough so I don't "outrun" them. Most likely gonna take 160+ days judging by my performance data from the PCT. I predict an October 7th finish just for the heck of it.
Totals:    2824.0 133
