We're considering the AT for 2003 and are in exploratory stages. Does a hik=
er hike the same daily mileage on the AT that he or she hiked on the PCT or=
 CDT? I think I've read that all the up and down lessens mileage. The CDT h=
ad days of a vertical mile gain as we followed the divide in little 300-800=
' gains and losses. I also understand that the AT has rough tread in places=
 but it seems to me that any tread at all is easier than the roughness of n=
o tread, not to mention the time factor in route finding. I know that each =
trail is different but we wanted a comparison rule of thumb for figuring da=
ily distance and resupply.
