Alright gotta do some maths here

So:

Tom has been doing rails for 20 years. We will say the average length is approximately 25ft. Based on the length of LJ's attempt edit for realski I would say that a successful full rail-slide occurs approximately 85% of the time when skiing urban and 95% of the time when skiing park (These are conservative numbers). So we will assign completion coeffeicents of .85 for street and .95 for park. Now lets consider the outliers. Lets say 3 times a year he is working on something crazy like his world record attempt. This means around 100 tries on something 80ft or more (I'm gonna say 80 ft to make the math easy and not include coefficients). This will need to be accounted for. In a normal week I'm gonna assume 6 days a week on average. Make that a 30 laps a day on average with 6 rail features hit on average. Now lets setup this equation.

So: (20years)*(312days per year)*(30 laps per day)= 187,000 laps over his career

Then: (187,000 laps)*(6 features per laps)= 1,122,000 features hit

Thus: (1,122,000 features hit) * (25 ft feature length)=28,050,000 feet of rails hit

Then: (28,050,000 ft of rails hit) *( .85)* (.95)=22,650,375 ft of rails hit

Also: (100 tries) *(80ft) *(3 times a year)= 24,000 ft of outlier shit

Finally: (28,074,000 ft)/(5,260ft per mile)=5,337 miles of rails slid over 20 years.

Disclaimer: I am really bad at math

Thank you to:

@eheath for helping me decide on toms numbers

Expect edits to math when I am much more sober

Ps: High numbers but this is tom walnuts we're talking about and the heath agreed

PSs: Days skied per year is probably too high
