My wife and I plan on hiking the trail next summer north bound, but starting earlier. We look forward to meeting you and waving as you pass by.

  Hi to all of you on the cdt-l.   I am planning on doing the CDT in the summer of 2008.  I am a ultra runner who lives in Lynchburg, VA.  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


  In Christ
