    Hey Ray. Nice article and good way to calculate time needed to hike a particular day. I’ve always used a minute per mile formula but not used a minute per 1000 feet climb ( I just add tncrease min/mile if lots of climbing ). Could you please confirm your 27 minute mile plus addition for climbing does not include lunch break or other longer type breaks ( i.e. Time to soak feet in a nice creek! ).

    That was our biggest problem
    Started slow 10 miles day
    Increased to 18 on the last days
    throwing out prehike calculations

    and had to cancel resupply
    Also finished hike on Friday with no transport
