I’m not a nutritionist, but I estimated 4,000 up. I looked up the tables for exercise and used the walking numbers. That is, for straight and level. I added a lot for the 2 mile uphill. Then multiplied for a 12-hour round trip.
Now we know. This device is on a client of Lasting Adventures on a 12-hour RT recently. 9,800 calories burned by this man. We all differ, but I’d go with this number.
Sounds like we now have permission for that banana split at the Curry Village Ice Cream parlor. Or stick to the crackers and water if you want to shed pounds.
Cables come down next week. Anyone going up soon? Weather is still gorgeous. Perfect time to go. Low crowds. Watch your daylight…it’s getting dark early. 6:30 pm is the official sunset time now. But in the mountains, it will get dark way earlier. Bring a flashlight.
Unrelated thought worth quoting: “Last night I held Aladdin’s lamp and so I wished that I could stay before the thing could answer me. Well, someone came and took the lamp away. I looked around, a lousy candle’s all I found.” – Steppenwolf
