I had an idea the other day.
One of the problems we ran into with the AT is that we all have significantly different paces, from at least two people who had to really work to get a mile, to people knocking off 6 or 7 miles a day easily. So I was wondering whether it would work better to total everybody's mileage and move ourselves along the trail at a collective pace? We'd still keep track of our individual miles however we wanted to, but the group would all stay together.
What do you think?
