53 miles in 70 hrs with a backpack (presumably) is pretty damn good, especially with elevation change.

The real question why? :lol:


Archaeological survey in a national forest. They're fixing to probably chain vegetation and needed to know where not to use heavy equipment. The veg removal is to reduce fire risk to communities/private landowners who've built close to the forest boundary.

How heavy was your backpack?

I walked with 12 kg most of the time, in the beginning more. Stupid me. :oops:

Just curious.

Day packing. Mostly water, hammer, nails, gps, pin flags, tape, radio... maybe 5-6 kg. Paid for by the USDA. Can't have the forest setting peeps houses on fire.

60 lbs +/- When I backpacked in Alaska and California on open trails starting with food for 10 days (6 to 7 day trek), water was a major problem in California, had to carry a gallon jug, plus a canteen.

Again this was on open trails, not x-country.

I am wealthy enough to own a large car. I can stuff a shit ton of stuff in the car and drive where I need to go.

The other day I made 400km in 3 hours for a work trip, try beating that you filthy peasants, while also carrying 200kg of equipment.

Yeah but no vehicle could go where I walked. You're sort of stuck to places where I've already been. :mrgreen:
