Yeah, when Andrew Skurka walked the route he called it "The Mosquito Loop." One of the few tours I couldn't be talked into doing. It just seems maddening; flat everywhere, cold, millions of bugs, difficult water sourcing and food resupplies, etc.

No doubt it's doable, but definitely Type 2 fun. I am all about that, but I need some other stuff as bookends, like beautiful mountains or nice towns to visit.

That one guy went waaaay north in Canada on CrazyGuy. I think someone else mentioned him. His numerous brushes with dehydration speak to that challenge.
