This must be a snail doing the hiking.

10.71 divided by 73.4 = 0.146 miles per hour. That's a little longer than a football field.

Are you using a map scale?

I bet that you measured on your map and found that it was 10 5/7 inches from one place to another. Now use your map scale to find out how far that would be in actual miles.

If Darrin averaged 2 2/3 miles per hour on a 73.4 hour long hike, then the distance must be about 31.5 miles. Check your distance again.
