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.

If ever you want to add something into my mail package please email me so I can you get you in touch with my amazing mum. She will be mailing my food packages out. Yes food is next on my blog it list!
