"....20 mpd on long hikes on snowshoes."  I'd still like to see the details for his hikes.  If he's talking about level terrain, with maybe a day pack, I'd say ok, maybe so for someone in very good condition.  If he's talking about rough terrain, and a loaded multi-day pack, that's something else.

  My experience has been that in the mountains in deep snow one mile per hour is about the average. It is possible to go faster, but not likely.

  Which brings me back to the Andrew Skurka thing. He is on record talking about routinely doing 20 mpd on long hikes on snowsoes. That still just blows my mind.
