  • ADK unsupported traverse 46 peaks

    On Friday August 24th I completed the “
    Ed Bunk Route” in 7days 8hours and 13minutes. I’d like to thank Cory D and Jan Wellford for completing and writing about there own traverse. It was truly inspirational expecially the parts about Ed Bunk and Cory’s grandfather. I encourage everyone to read his post from 9-25-2009.
    I Also would like to thank a few people who turned me on to running and the outdoors.
    Tom Simpson, Jeff Bradley and Tom Leimier.
    I Also want to thank some people who directly motivated me to undertake and complete this goal. Steve Miles, Lisa Schouten, Sara Schouten,Alex Barth and Andy Latanashen.
    It was honestly one of the greatest experiences in my life. Not everything went my way but in the end I finished.

    Wow!! Congratulations on a monumental achievement. You are the first, and will probably the last, new forum member whose first post is about a speed round of the 46.

    Now... we want more details!!! Would love to read a trip report or get a link to a blog or whatever. You've whet our appetites with this post so now we want to hear about this amazing journey.

        Well congratulations.

        Can you tell us why you choose to do the ADK 46ers and this route in particular?

            Marshall has been know for being very green. Lots of moss.

              Cory D Wrote about Ed Bunk coming up with this route. It makes logistical sense since you get the hard peaks done early and don’t have to summit a peak with your full backpack until day 5.

                  I’ll try to write something down in the next week or two. Thank you for your interest.
                  I love those mountains and feel alive when dealing with whatever they offer.

                    I was away for a couple days.

                    I had checked the 46r roster. Because I didn't see your name that's why I thought to ask why you chose the ADK 46.

                      Outstanding feat! I too would love to read all about the planning and execution. Did you lose much weight during the hike? Run into any issues (blisters, injuries, nausea, lack of sleep)?

                        Congratulations Ian! I believe I talked briefly to you after Cat's Tail Marathon last year, but I didn't realize at the time that you were the familiar/famous name Ian Schouten. This accomplishment adds, in a different way, to plenty of trail run accomplishments such as wins at Wakely Dam, Laurel Highlands twice, HAT run twice, and getting close a couple of times anyway to an under 3 hour Escarpment. Results are hard to find pre-1999 for Escarpment, so not sure if you might have broken 3 hours. Nice run at Cayuga 50 mile this year, too!
                        I might be kidding...

                          Nice job! You look fresher in your photo than I do after a single day hike lol.

                            Amazing!

                            And for an old guy, too. Inspiration. If you get a chance to write it up, I'd read it.
