[pct-l] Hiking Speed

Lightningbolt, thank you for stating so clearly what hiking is all about. You 
say a man in the North Cascades asked you if you missed much by walking 30 
miles a day. Your answer, that as long as you are happy you aren't missing 
anything was spot on.

I'm 44 years old. I've been backpacking and hiking for 31 years. This year I 
got in really good shape, and carried an ultralight load, and did my most 
ambitious mileage days ever. And I have never enjoyed myself as much.

We all have our own ways of doing things and if they work for us and we are 
happy, then what else could possibly matter?

Thanks for that posting!
