i would like to add some real studies to this and point out that it took someone recently 273 days just to walk the Nile which is 900 miles couldn't be assed converting it

In that case, it would be 4122 days, over 11 years.

I have no idea. I just wanted to point it out. But amazing that you took the time to calculate how long it would take

Let's try to do it a little more complex, I like the way you think.

Around one third of that line is desert, I couldn't find any exact information on human walking speed in desert, however, from personal experience I'd say around half is a good estimate. Meaning that 1/3 of the hike will be done at 2.5 km/h.

There's also very few mountain areas and bodies of water to pass, overall these are relatively insignificant, but they should still make 1/50 of the hike pass at around 1 km/h, this is a broad assumption but it will account for other environmental blocks the people hiking might encounter.

Taking all that into account, the average walking speed for the trail would be
5 * 65% + 3.5 * 32 % + 1 * 2 % = 4.07 km/h

However, uneven terrain will also significantly add to the total hiking distance, and adding some extra length will also account for the human inability to walk in a completely perfect line all the time. With sand dunes, a few mountainous areas, and other factors, I think 16.000 km is a valid assumption, although I can't ground this is in much factual data.

With the same calculation that assumes a human can walk 12 hours a day, this will amount to:

16000 / 4.07 = 3931 hours

3931 / 12 = 328 days, a quite significant difference.

Hope this was interesting! I'm a math student on a break so I enjoy this stuff.

realistically it would take way longer considering you have to cross some of the toughest terrains in the world and get through the tightest borders. that's saying you were actually allowed to cross the border

#173 - reretzu (02/12/2015) [-]
Completely agreed! I also doubt any human could walk 12 hours a day for 2/3 of a year. This was just a very rough calculation trying to put some kinda number on it. I just did another calculation where I tried to take in some more of the effects in comment 171, although it's still far from realistic.

Not taking into acount that the surface is not flat (or?).

#166 - reretzu (02/12/2015) [-]
I'm not. I wouldn't really know how to find the information in the first place. That could possibly up the time significantly, if you think you know how to find the information and calculate the effect somewhat then I'd encourage you to try.

12 hours a day is extreme, lets cut it off at 40 km per day. Thats tough enough
User avatar
#168 - reretzu (02/12/2015) [-]
13589 / 40 = 334 days

Eight hours a day straight for 334 days still seems kinda extreme for a human. You could spend a whole year hiking this trail.
