[pct-l] Question on daily miles. What is a good daily average for miles hike on the section from Kennedy Meadows to say South Lake Tahoe. If your normal daily average say is 20 miles does the High Sierra cut that down to half ? What would be a good daily average.

Hike a pass a day. Camp lower, hike over the pass and down far enough to set yourself up for the next pass. Pinchot is close enough to and low enough to make a two pass day. 

If you don't climb Whitney, plan on 10 days from KM to VVR at 17.6 mpd. Days are longer so even though you have a big daily climb you are stronger and have more daylight.
