MPD in a Yak

Posted by Jay E. Morris on Sep 27, 2005

I've wanted do a multi-day trip for a long while but the biggest problem is planning how long it would take, or conversely, how far I could get in a certain amount of time. Now 280 miles in 100 hours is a little faster than I want to do right now today but I'm wondering, for those of you that have done multi-day trips, how far do you expect to do in a day (Miles Per Day as it were)on average? I know river conditions and flow affect it alot but I need a ballpark planning figure.

Thanks muchly.
