Most moves to "reset"

I could swear I posted it here somewhen already,
but can't find it. Give a position where only in
n moves it is possible to move a pawn or capture
an unit. with maximal n. (Of course the real fun
only begins if you could obtain n>50, or even
better n>75.)

Hauke, this is the thread you're searching for:

The current record, by Geir, is 100 moves long in post 35.

Geir Sune Tallaksen Østmoe, Forum 14/8/2013
Reset the 50-move rule in 100 moves
(= 13+12 )

I also put it here: (I will correct the stipulation if needed)

THX! The rule discussion that came up elsewhere requires
that both White and Black *want* to restart, but can't
for a long time. (The K marches in the very early times
of the thread.)

Think of a chess game where the flag falls, but it is a
draw because of the 75-move rule being inevitably
triggered in any future move line. :-)
