This is based on walking 3 miles/hour for 8 hours a day, while taking a half day off between rest stops. This gives me a little less mileage a day, but less zero days. I think this is reasonable because if I hike farther two days I will be able to have a full zero day. Thus giving me more flexibility as well as allowing me to make decisions as the terrain affects me.
