No reason to do either. I'm not one that likes jerking off for some record.

Many average speed hikers have completed it as a day hike. Carry a very light pack, jog the flats and downhills, and doing it in 12 hours or less is very doable. The current record is 6 hours 56 minutes!


That's average "speed hikers" not average-speed hikers. Book time estimate (for average hikers) is about 25 hrs!

Book time is just a mathmatical formula and does not include stops or trail conditions. Perhaps our definition of average is differant than yours. Hikers we know that are average do hikes including stops in less time than book time and may carry a larger pack. Speed hikers that we know do them in much less time and carry a small (11 liters in Summer) pack. Trail runners do them very quickly and only carry water and some gel.

We did it but in 3 days- started @ Lincoln Woods east side trail, stayed at 13 Falls, over to Garfield for the 2nd night, then across the Franconia Ridge (AHmazing!) out to Liberty Springs to the basin parking lot on the 3rd day. We had friends gracious enough to drive us back to our cars @ Lincoln Woods. It was fun & i'd do it again.

say what you want about this thread but you gotta admit, a post from 18 months ago that still gets hits really strikes a nerve in all of us. I propose a Hike-NH hike next summer, pemi loop, who's with me? oh and by the way I'm thinking maybe 5-6 days :D
