I don't think I explained myself too well. The boys have hiked 15-18 miles
twice. This covers two of the three 15 mile requirements for backpacking.
They are hiking 20 miles this weekend. This, IMHO, will meet the
requirement for the third 15 miler, as well as the 20 miler required for
hiking. I was not suggesting any requirement be cut short.
