Numbers and statistics

Before I leave for my next trip, I thought I better do a summary of the last one....

So in 2008/09 I did:

3.440 km on foot on the Appalachian Trail
961 km on foot on the Bibbulmun Track in Western Australia
135 km on foot on the Cape to Cape Track in Western Australia
2.220 km on bicycle in Australia, mainly in Tasmania and between Melbourne and Adelaide
2.803 km on bicylce in New Zealand, traversing both islands
3.982 km on bicylce in Japan on the islands of Honshu, Shikoku and Kyushu
1.290 km on bicycle in South Korea from Busan to Seoul

So the plan for 2010 starting January 6th:

318 km in a canoe on a flip-flop on the Wilderness Waterway
1.770 km on foot on the Florida Trail
1.287 km on the Arizona Trail
2.428 km on bicycle in Utah, Nevada and California
1.498 km on bicycle from Darwin to Alice Springs
223 km on foot on the Larapinta Trail in the Northern Territory in Australia
1.530 km on bicycle from Alice Springs to Adelaide
1.200 km on foot on the Heysen Trail in Southern Australia
440 km on foot on the Hume and Hovell Track
655 km on foot on the Australian Alps Walking Track

And then? All depends on who I meet, what the exchange rates do and whether I still like hiking and or cycling. But the rough plan is to get back from Australia to the US in winter 2010/11 and do:

5.086 km on bicycle on the Southern Tier from San Diego, CA to St. Augustine, FL
523 km on foot on the Alabama and Georgia on the Pinhoti Trail

And then back to Europe to start the big European thruhike early June 2011 stringing together some of the famous walks:

1.270 km on foot on the Zentralalpenweg 02 through Austria
350 km on foot on the Alpine Pass Route through Switzerland
674 km on foot on the GR through the French Alps
800 km on foot on various GR's through southern France connecting up to the Pyrenees
840 km on foot on the GR10/11/HRP through the Pyrenees
800 km on foot on the Camino de Santiago through Spain up to Cabo Finisterre

But everything will probably be totally different and I will end up God knows where... I will see!
