I didn't interpret the article the same way.  I think he implies that 
he will get two mail drops from his brother and that he will be on 
his own to resupply from the trail.  It suggests that his pack weight 
will be 30 pounds and he plans to have a diet that would include 
heavier food.  He could not carry a months supply of tuna and make 
those kinds of miles.  Thirty days of food would come in at about 60 
pounds.  I'm sure he thinks I am a "nay sayer".  It would be amazing 
if he is successful but I don't believe he is giving himself a fair 
chance.  Has anyone recently claimed an unsupported record?  I wish 
him luck.
