Video: 118 Miles on the PCT in a Single Push

How far could you walk in a single push if you had to? For thru-hiker Mike Curtin the answer is at least 118 miles (190 km). That’s how far he walked this past July while backpacking along the Pacific Crest Trail. At one point while he was in the Oregon wilderness, Curtin becomes so fed up with the mosquitoes that he decided to start walking and not stop until he had left those annoying bugs behind for good. He ended up trekking 118 miles over 38 hours to make good on his escape. The video above takes us through this very long walk, which goes to show you how far you push yourself if you try.
