I will be attempting to set the Self Supported FKT of the MDT the week of August 20. In doing so, I will also attempt to set the overall FKT for the trail as well. My actives can be followed on Instagram (www.instagram.com/backwardshatforwardthinking) and Strava (www.strava.com/athletes/lance_ness).
Self Supported-I will NOT have anyone following, or otherwise meeting me in prearranged manner to give me support. I plan to do this hike ... as a backpacker, carrying all of my food, equipment, and water [note that using natural water sources along the route is allowed] between resupply towns, which I will walk into and purchasing food, in these towns. ...I will not be getting in a vehicle for any reason during this attempt, if I do it means the attempt is off.
