You lost 30 pounds from hiking or your pack is 30 pounds lighter?
Man, you two can really rack up the elevation gain.
I think this is the first year that I've actually paid attention to what my elevation gain was when I posted all my triplogs. My triplogs from previous years, I only focused on mileage & time & what day and didn't even bother to enter in an AEG for generic posts or make sure the default was what I actually did...
...I spent three months training at 210 to 200 pounds, then in June cut to 195... August cut to 176.... will finish the cut down to 165 in September for the fall hiking event (four loops on Finger Rock trail). As I cut the body weight, I begin training with heavier and heavier packs to preserve the muscle developed with the heavier body mass.
I was wondering if the higher general elevations reflected in the data might be that more people were posting more accurately, or posting more of their activity as opposed to hiking more. The jump in the stats looks substantial over the past year.
Just a couple more days remaining in this 100,000' elevation gain month; I am looking forward to getting back to a "regular" schedule!
