    Default Karl Meltzer, 2016 AT record attempt

    ... and Jurek will be crewing. Just read it today. Can't get any better than that!

    I hope he does it -- I still have a Speed Goat decal on my truck.

    Extremely cool ! Thanks for that link. Looking forward to following! I think the consensus reached last summer with SJ is that KM will probably go SOBO? I have a feeling, assuming KM stays healthy on his RECORD ATTEMPT (not sure why if he does it faster than JPD it wouldn't be a record???), that there will be a lot less drama when he approaches Springer... But who knows. Fun stuff!

    If this brings about a yawn to anyone, I suggest not opening such threads. Just a thought.

    He should go SoBo. Doesn't seem to be an issue on Springer.

    Ooops. CR beat me to it. Apologies from this "cyber-hiker".

    If I ever implied that you were only a cyber-hiker, I apologize.

    No need. Bashing myself. Feeling cooped up. Haven't seen a trail in months.

    After the foolishness of Scott Jurek, the ATC should seriously consider not allowing it. I'm sure it could be arranged.

    How on earth could banning be arranged? The ATC doesn't have that authority. Even if they did why would they do it? A new record is actually a great opportunity to show the public that mistakes can be fixed.

    HYOH!

    Sooooooo should there be a minimum number of days required to do a thru hike. Hike it faster and the hiking police ticket you. Really????? It still just walking, just a bit faster. HMHDI

    If speed hiking is not one of your interests put this particular subforum on ignore rather than dropping churlish posts into the threads here. You are not trapped in a room and forced to listen to the conversation. You have to open the thread to read it.

    I don't have any interest in golf. If people nearby are having a conversation about it, I don't step into the group to announce I don't like golf. It would be boorish.

    If some one does idiot stuff like Scott did, maybe they should be prevented. BSP could easily prevent him access to Katahdin. You don't think they are capable of such action? I think they just might do it. A GSMNP ranger detaining him for 24 hrs. on suspicion of whatever and then refusing his permit. All of that could easily be arranged. Fair or not ?? Who cares. Piss of the powers that be and suffer the consequenses. Talk to any black person about what it's like "driving while black" Harasesment by the cops happens all the time. Easy to set up.
