    I'm still toying with the idea of going. It depends on my kids' basketball schedule which hasn't been posted yet.

    Did a lot of reflection based on the past weekend and recent loss of my hiking partner.

    I can push out more miles than I give myself credit for. Hell I knocked out 9 miles in 4 hours and arrived at camp the first day at 330pm with napping mid day.

    I am probably going to revamp my original itinerary and push out a 16 mile day the first day, 10 mile the second and reach the first shelter RPH, push out another 16 mile day and skip over a shelter and land at Telephone Pioneer, Head out to Wiley for 9 miles, then victory lap it to the train station.... weather permitting obviously

    Another thing... I'm gonna need more food... really at dinner time. Maybe it was the cold but I was hungry that night by 2am and I ate quite often. As stated in my 3 season gear video, brother I can eat. I'm going to look into more filling items. I mean I had the spicy chicken from hawkvittles (yum) and stuffed 2 tortillas with it and then had half a bowl to finish off and I wanted more. I actually lost 2 pounds from that hike and it wasn't much.

    I purchased the Spot II tracker. I'll set up a webpage so my family can track me because my Fiance is not happy... I mean NOT happy I'm solo. Maybe I'll link up the page here if you guys are interested.

    I'm now projecting a 4 1/2 day hike

    I don't know but, it sounds like you are not getting enough calories and or fat to sustain your high metabolism and the caloric burn rate is normally high for you (from what it sounds) so this will be magnified during a hike as you will burn off even more! Have you thought about adding something to your meals, like olive oil, or something like it, to give you the extra that it sounds like you need!

    Just throwing this out there, I am in no way a dietician , doctor or such so take this with a grain of salt!!!

    Thanks CB,

    By throwing in Tortillas I thought I was adding more calories. I'm currently researching better ways to keep me full and still keeping it around 1.5lbs per day. Chances are I will probably need to bring more food ie 2lbs per day.

    It's not that I have a high metabolism it's just I burn a lot of calories with my work outs each week. I run about 2.3-2.5 miles before I lift and then I have been on a 5 week heavy lifting regimine. And I hit the heavy bag on Sundays and do my martial arts. That and I maintain a fairly healthy diet. Well except for one day, that's my cheat day.

    When I take a week or two off I gain about 4-6lbs easy if I dont change my eating habits. I say this as I stuff an everything bagel with cream cheese down my face... love bagel fridays!

    Raul:
    Have you thought about Peanut butter and honey as a snack or after dinner treat while on the trail. Has the carbs and calories that it sounds like you need plus it will stick around for a little while.

    Sounds like a plan. Though I have to admit I've been steering away from peanuts and peanut butter because I get apetite fatigue from it the past outings I brought it.
