This post clearly indicates that you don't have any experience with backpacking / serious hiking. You aren't going to cover that distance staying in heavy cover or only moving at night. (which are claims you've made thousands of times.) You also aren't going to make that kind of pace in your AO. Mountainous terrain - if you say so.andy said:1800 miles gets you out of ANY place, basically. 20 miles a day is nothing much, to a fit man, even if he has to forage. In 1800 miles and 2mos, you can't find ANY bicycle, horse, boat, etc, to HELP you cover ground? VERY unlikely.
