I'm both the Scoutmaster and a hiking MB counselor. He is contrasting the requirement for "20 continuous miles IN ONE DAY" with the language of "Take five hikes, each on a different day, and each of at least ten continuous miles". His question is can he count the 55 miles he'll hike to fulfill the 5 10 mile hikes. I've told him no, that it means 10 miles in a single day for each hike. But it's put enough of a question in my mind I thought I'd get some input from others to make sure I'm not adding to the requirement.
I leave my money to John, Bill, and Sarah.

Perhaps theplan could add in a sidetrack to a monument, park, marker or whatever. Or, hikers could reverse their route briefly then return again to destination....making the trip come out right? Just think outside the box and help those that only see the sides of the box???
