Congratulations to all of you.  Who else is still hiking?

I look forward to seeing the video - please put us on your list.

Did you follow the new trail south of Silver City?  Did they finish marking 
the trail north of Rte 9?

For future hikers, Sheriden windmill is about 1/8 mile off trail up the 
draw, as shown on the BLM map.  We followed cow paths that led us right to 
the water but I know others who followed trail markers and missed the turn.

>Dear CDT-liens, just wanted to let everyone know that P.O.D. and I along

>terminus on the Mexican Border November 6th around 6 PM!  It was an amazing 
>day . . . we had miscalculated our mileage so we ended up doing a 28-miler 
>to finish, ran out of water (couldn´t find the Sheridan Canyon windmill), 
>and got to the border in the dark.  We may or may not have opened the 
>cattle gate at the border and celebrated in Mexico! ,-)  And in a stroke of 
>amazing luck . . . we ended up getting a ride in ¨the cage¨of a Border 
>Patrol Agent´s SUV all the way back to Hachita.  All the crazy details are

>. . . or Skittles or Pi´s trailjournal.
>The CDT was challenging, frustrating, unpredictable and absolutely 
>beautiful.  I´m still trying to process it all.
>Be on the lookout for the 1st ever Southbound CDT Documentary to be
