Yes, it was because of the Kilian factor.
Just to let you know I am the one who made the time sheet up.
He did not like what I gave him at first so we took an hour of sleep a day off.
Then in order to make up the time he really wanted it had to be done in 3 chunks.
It was suppose to be the 3 chucks with the added hour of sleep each day, but when he fell short each day of the 80 hour time, he didn't get the recommended amount of sleep.
Hey a push at the end is supposed to be just that, right?
On the other hand, while doing the calculations for him each time, you will like what you see here.
Last year the times were tallied of what I thought he could do.
Instead Michael just tried to beat Sue's times on each segment.
This year I calculated his times and put together the 1st spread-sheet that he didn't like based off last years pace.
I then noticed this year that his hiking pace was almost spot on as last years, so just now I made up another sheet for next year.
I only used his times and did not add up the "Total Time" until the end.
All 3 times, (last years, this years and next years), came up with a time of 87:45.
So if he just does his pace, sleeps the time he should and gets to Yosemite, this is what we are looking at.
if he tries to change it for next year, I quit...Ha ha...
