I am attempting to be come the slowest person to ever complete the AT (obviously in sections). I am actually serious. I did my first section in 1979. I am 62 and have about 1200 miles of AT to complete. I want to do my last section in 2029 so I can gain the coveted Half Century Award. Does anyone know of anyone slower. The ATC is not aware of anyone who has "out glaciered" me. Thanks (again I am 100% serious).
I did my first AT section way back in 1976. Never thought about the half century thing though... I hope to finish up by 2026, but it might be several years later, as I may not retire from working until 2028.
