Tracking backpacking miles separately from day hiking mikes

Numerous Scouting awards (particularly the High Adventure Awards, but also numerous merit badges) require minimum hiking miles or minumum backpacking miles in their requirements. There is no means to separate these two activities for tracking purposes, despite the need to do so. Can this be added as a feature in the Scout’s Hiking Log section? Or, alternatively, in the Camping Log (backpacking miles only), similar to how you track Frost Points?

Alternatively, include the additional information in the notes for the log entry. Once you export the log to a CSV, then you can filter them as needed.

Or prefix all Backpacking entries with the word Backpacking so that they are easy to find in reports.
