I like the idea of final immobilising of wK, after changing the colour of his trips. With his starting position on a4, there would be more of switchbacks elements. If the intention was to have the longest solution, it could be 41 moves (1.c2-c4), with the third double step. If working in another direction, the 4th double step h2-h4 could be included, too.

Dear Marjan Kovacevic, I appreciate your suggestion very much. Yes, beginning from a4 would be much better: The king, after a long and twisted trip, turnes to the same square! I will ask Julia if she would publish a version…

Can be trivially extended to 41 moves, starting with c2-c4. This seems to be a length record, longest ser-# with WhiteMaximummer and no other fairy conditions or pieces in Winchloe is a 35-mover by Unto Heinonen.
I’ve found a 44-mover which can be found on my facebookpage (and if I am allowed to cheat, I have found a 51-mover with a hole)
