If you know us, you know that one of us really likes stats (and spreadsheets).  After going back through our blog and all of our pictures and videos, we came up with the most important stats that we could think of.  Broken down by section, we have the total number of miles hiked, the number of nights slept in our tent or cowboy camped, the number of days with significant rain or snow (two days with snow), the longest stretch between showers and doing laundry, and rattlesnake and bear sightings.

Here are some other random stats:

  • Heaviest Pack Weight for Alan = 42 pounds (about)
  • Heaviest Pack Weight for Janel = 37 pounds (about)
  • Most Water Carried = 8 liters for Alan, 6 liters for Janel
  • Calories Consumed = 1,360,000  (this is completely a guess)
  • Pictures Taken = 13,570
  • Videos Taken = 274
  • Shoes = 9 pairs (five for Alan, four for Janel)
  • Blisters = 2 (one for each of us)
  • Major Falls (Non-Deadly) = 3 (one for Alan, two for Janel – back to back days)
  • Mosquito Bites = Lost count somewhere in Yosemite
