Thanks for the comments and suggestions.
I'm going to be doing the alabama part of the pinhoti, i figure it will be 9 to 12 days, depending on how I push. Since it will be May in the south I will not push too hard if it is real hot, which will cut down on the hiking time. Probably do early morning, mid/late afternoon early evening mostly, depending on how well the trail is marked also.
I'll probably hide a stash of food and fuel about half way at a road crossing. This will let me do some adjusting as I see what I've used and done to that point.
I'll most likely do some pesto and spicy olive oil, and other stuff, kinda using the groovy biotic stuff as a guide.
I had planned on doing a longer trip a couple months back, but my dad had a heart attack. I work on boats and do 28 days on 28 off so if I don't get this done in May it will be late this year, November, December, or next year. I've got plans for other trips etc... so I'm going to try and get this done. I walk several time a week 5 to 7 miles, depend on the time I have, with a pack load of 38/40 lbs, my base is 17/20 depending on the hammock and season. Since it will be May I'm looking at 17lbs and I haven't trimmed all I can yet... still heading to light weight and need to so tweaking on the pack, and a few other items..
But I will continue to read more here at I play with my dehydrator, work on the menu, and make a other items. Not mention I need to put my hackintosh together since I finally got all the parts...
