They're not travelling nearly as fast, but here are two women attempting the same trek. https://www.instagram....

A woman from Arizona made a big fuss about doing that, started it, and quit right away, saying it wasn't where she wanted to be. I could go on and on about that woman, but am glad I no longer see her on social media. Blocking works very well.

Hahaha...Yeah...Total Drama Queen...
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty & well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, totally worn out & proclaiming, "Wow What a Ride!"

@azbackpackr
Not sure what the purpose of your comment is. The two women I mentioned have been on their adventure for about two years now.

I understand that. This is another woman who some of us are familiar with, not on HAZ, though. She talked for a year about doing the Argentina to Alaska walk, went to South America, then quit. She was making a splash in the newspapers for other things at the same time.

It sounds like a worthwhile adventure, but I wouldn't want to be committed to that pace.

Long-distance walking is really hard. I've known lots of people who quit trails after a short (or longer) period of time. I don't look down on any of them--at least they tried.

You'd have had to hear the whole story, in many facets. I'm not going to tell it here. In fact, now I wish I had never brought it up, except that Pam hit the nail on the head.
