THE LAST DAYS OF MY ITINERARY ARE NOT YET DETERMINED. I WILL BASICALLY BE FOLLOWING DAVID HORTON’S PACE IN THE NORTH. THERE MAY BE INSTANCES WHERE I CAN PULL AWAY BY A FEW MILES HERE AND THERE . THE PACE IN NEW HAMPSHIRE AND MAINE IS DETERMINED BY ROAD CROSSINGS MORE SO THAN THE REST OF THE ATTEMPT. ASSUME A 43.5 MILE PER DAY PACE IF YOU ARE PLANNING TO MEET US. MILAGE WAS RECORDED FROM A 1999 DATA BOOK. MILAGE VARIES FROM ’98 BY .01 MILE.
