Somebody's got to be kidding. Thats not fun, its a death march. If
I did the math correctly it would take over 16 hours walking at 3 mph.
I've walked 20 miles in a day a couple times and it was enough. I'm in
good shape and once hiked 19 miles at Philmont as a Ranger. 50 miles
on FOOT will burn out any Scout. It could still be a challenge if done
on 2 wheels.
