Greenstone Ridge Trail

My wife and I are going to hike the Greenstone Ridge Trail in May, from Sat-Thur(boat times). Our first night we plan on staying at Three-Mile, are we crazy for planning on getting to West Chicken Bone for the second night? If anyone has an idea on an itenerary I would like to see it.
Thanks
