Disagree with you. I don't do now rides for two days or even three to get decent food "when I'm away 3 days PCT finish. Eaten Cheetos too if that helps and peanut butter and a loaf of bread.

3 days to travel 160 miles? (Assuming it's actually 100 miles as you said)

A hundred miles each as Greece.
When you have a ride one day and this may.
And the problem is mainly a ride back. In short ... A matter of personal style. Imtl 40907.8805787037

Arthur, one thing common to all except those who ת'רוהייק is their willingness to compromise and to lower their standards, sometimes radically, about things like convenience (willingness to go even when the weather really gross), personal hygiene, and sometimes food. The only thing that separates that unfurl in the middle (they are the vast majority in Appalachian spring, and larger on the PCT) but finished the last, is determined enough to sacrifice sometimes the everyday conveniences for satisfaction/runway end balicha No equipment, no amount of planning and physical fitness will determine if you finish a course, only the determination and the willingness to be miserable at times. It's not physical strength that will allow you to finish, this resilience. Physical strength only allow you to finish it in one year, rather than over several summers, such as what moves that are injured are forced to do.

The most extreme example it finds in this forum, many years ago with a guy named Roy, after army guy "in good shape" and ego, hamotsa much greater than average, for which Heather designed the apalch ended after one miserable night:
Months of planning, thousands of dollars on travel and equipment, discarded after about 1 km on the apalch walk, because he had a cold, miserable night very Har Springer.   If you check the archives the name Roy in 2004 I think you can find it.

Believe me, if you go from Mexico all the way to staiken and be in a State of elk or collected, you go for chocolate without thinking it twice and it looks weird. The Kings are kind of person who is willing to compromise on chocolate in staiken, they are the kind of moves that never will be staiken within ת'רוהייק.

Here's the good news — the amount of misery that are likely to have to deal with a significant lower than PCT you find other trails. This is perhaps the most miserable for some I know, also because of the weather, partly because people and logistics, and the way the trail and stunning landscapes and culture. It's one of the reasons for a relatively high percentage of finishers in the new path.

I would also say if you found out that misery and enjoy five consecutive months of walking not worth doing ת'רוהייק achievement and decided for that requires a lot of Moxie, you might want to do two PCT three pieces over several years. Extra time allow you to plan and less crowded and more compromises (e.g. times you can avoid getting less bad weather instead of walking in rain storms like ת'רוהייקרים). In this mode you can also walk the path in more optimal weather, thus saving the need to do Washington in September when sometimes wet and cold there.

I can't believe I was ready for this.
For me there is a big difference between going in a rain and strong winds and to put garbage. Especially when he needs a proper diet.

But I can't say for certain until I'm in that situation.

This year I got stuck without food in the middle of a Trek down from the mountains and walked to the next town to buy food demands. What we require from me then to climb at 2500 feet and a half hours to get back to. Yes I know it sounds illogical but proof of my mountaineering watch so I can be stubborn when it should.

Different priorities. Arthur 40908.1370023148

As you wrote ... Until this situation. And you can be ready to go for days. Try to know.
By the way ... Eat snow 3 days because it is stuck?


You know that I think we also collected garbage for the body? That's not the point. Just a matter of what you do when you have three days to end. Imtl 40908.4025578704

= Another trail

The via Alpina trail more complicated logistics. But looks nice and impressive. I was going for it. Don't forget fine dining = expensive usuallyimtl40908.7268287037

Where the information regarding the logistical complication on via Alpina?
It's not the information I got, I actually saw that in many villages.
Please specify. Arthur 40908.9054861111

The way I read stories. Of the few who did all the track and those who did the Decade. Maybe I misunderstood.

First of all thanks. Secondly they do section. I think the Arthur talks about Theroux the Lake filled. Then should examine each track not just the section in question. Still great post.

Apparently not supposed to be logistical difficulties as this area of Europe is quite densely
