Maybe 47 miles? Did a Dirty 30 on the Lochsa one day, and an Upper the next...but that might have been more like 27-28 hours.

I n my opinion, «Anything Worth Doing» was a good book, but not a great
book. I read it right after I read «The Emerald Mile». It just doesn't compare. Both are about dory speed runs, but the texture of AWD is nowhere near as rich as TEM.
If you're out to read both...read «Anything Worth Doing» first
! It's worth a read, but «The Emerald Mile» is in my permanent library, and «Anything Worth Doing» was worth the read but will get passed on.
«Anything Worth Doing» almost read more like «Never Turn Back», Walt Blackadar's biography.
