Not too many of us are interested in speed records accomplished by support. Why don't you spend the winter reading a few books or talk to Francis Tapon when he finishes his Yo - yo. Hey what about me

I have previously set the speed record on the Long Trail, AT, and PCT. I plan on starting the CDT around June 5-10, 2008 at the Mexican border. I know that Squeaky set the record of 75 days in 2005 unsupported. I plan on doing it supported somewhere around 65 days, plus or minus 5 days, depending on the length of the trail.
I know that you are thinking, how can you set a record on a trail that is not complete or has various routes? I plan on hiking the official trail as much as possible and not taking any shortcuts.
How long is the trail if I do it this way?? I hear the CDTA saying it is 3100 miles. When Squeaky and Flyin Brian did it, they both reported 2700 miles.
I know I have a lot to learn and I look forward to learning from many of you.
I love the trails
