    Default Most miles logged in one day?

    For me, its 265. Did it with Alaska_Lanche and Polarisblake. Got a hair to go to Arctic Man from Cantwell and back in a day. Weren't there very long and by mile 200 you definitely wanted to quit....

    In my younger days (59) I went from Unalakleet to Nome in one day 250 miles by myself. When I got to Golovin and gas up I felt so good I decided to continue on to Nome it was only 75 miles away. That turns out to not be a smart thing to do, arrive in Nome around 8pm. Ahhhh….. to be young and dumb.

    No doubt, I thought of that when I posted originally, but thought "What the heck!"

    After all, I could be an iron-dogger, I "just dont have the time"

    Anyone who ever says something remotely close to that is, well, completely ignorant....

    TBloomA and I run the Yetena River Poker Run all in one day. That usually is about a 200 to 210 mile round trip. I don't think any of our trips this year have been less then 150 miles.

    My longest ever run was a 513 mile day......that was the Lake Superior loop. Here in Alaska I have had a couple of 300 to 350 mile days running out to Sleeping Lady, Finger Lake, Rainy Pass/Puntilla.



    Trail Boss when you are going to make the loop count me and BloomA in. We have been talking about making that same ride.
