    I have my doubts on this one.
    That record is tough and he is getting old.
    Didn't he get lost last time out?

    At 55 miles per day, he'd have a good cushion against 8:12:14:05. 16m/M x 15hr per day would do it.
    I think he's won Hardrock a couple of times, so he knows what the neighbor is like.
    Plus he's a Barkley finisher.
    There's a lot of 10,000+ ft on the trail, but he's been out there a few weeks training, that helps I suppose.
    A lot can go wrong,
    but I wouldn't bet money against him.

    I wish these guys would just hike their own hikes and stop the shameless self promotion.

    "these guys" have more class than typical thru-hikers that think they're entitled. That's why there's another thread that's 8 pages (and growing) about shtty hikers that can't clean up after themselves.

    Like any athlete I follow, I love being able to constantly check their progress. As a guy who works in social media I also love seeing the use of things like twitter to help hikers keep their loved one updated. Well done!

    I see the czealand account on Twitter is suspended. Too many hits?

    I think the odds are against anyone trying to break this type of record, but Horton certainly has the experience to get this done! I'll be rooting for him.

    When he tried setting the CDT "record', he got lost in New Mexico on the first day.

    The CT, being a well marked and defined trail is a bit more conducive to records.

    We'll see what happens.

    czealand is up and running on Twitter.

    Last night David and Travis arrived at the Copper Mtn trailhead at 10pm. It was a long day but David covered the 60.1 miles in 18 hours.
    They then drove 20miles down the road to Frisco and stayed the night in a small motel.
    This morning David was back on the trail shortly after 4am and JB reported that David started into Segment 9 at 12-noon MST today. Covering the first 25.4 miles today by noon means that Horty is maintaining his pace over some very tough terrain at high elevations.
    Dang, I can't even begin to imagine.....

    I'd be interested if he stuck to the trail or took the bike path.
    So many of these western records are blue blazed shortcuts.
    I really don't care how one walks EXCEPT when it comes to records, or first... perhaps frothing from the mouth- of ones most....

    See: setting the bar.


    So what if MOST people lie and yellowblaze. Big deal. I get it, the human condition and all....

    But are not these things different? Am I alone with these thoughts?
