Not really Ed, #2 states that you CAN NOT cover the 50 miles in less
than 5 days, therefore #3 says the maximum miles covered per day would
be 10 miles. If you went out for 10 days and only walked 5 miles per day
you would still be falling within the requirements as stated. Now not being
a BSA member, whether you could cover more than 10 miles in a day AND only
count 10 towards the total only those knowledgeable in BSA policies would know.
