At the end of Joe’s last post he commented that he figured he was going 14-20 miles a day. That got me to thinking and since I have all the data so far, I decided to calculate a table of his miles per day for each Trail Report leg of his hike. Note that these numbers include ALL his zero days, so his low numbers usually mean many of those interim days he wasn’t hiking at all.
Anyway, I propose to those of you keeping up with this Trail blog, that we have a pool to guess what DAY Joe will finish and summit Mt. Katahdin.
Use the data I provided above as a helper, or just close your eyes and point to a date on the calendar. Only 1 rule: leave all your guesses in the comments of this blog post. If more than one person picks the winning day, I’ll have a random draw of the names that chose it.
THE PRIZE: I was thinking about what could be a prize and it was immediately pretty obvious… how about Joe’s Appalachian Trail Reports printed and bound as a booklet – and I’ll see about getting Joe to autograph it as well before sending it on to the winner.
(I’ll rule myself out of the contest, but I’d guess September 12)
