I would think hitch hiking into supply points would be greatly complicated with a dog.  Its hard enough as a dirty looking bper to get a ride sometimes.  Two older lades picked me up and gave me a ride into Lincoln, MT, but I bet with a dog I would not have had a chance with them.

  In our multi-section hike of the CDT, my wife and I hiked 1,000 miles with our dog.  As a result, much as I wanted to do it initially, I would not do it again.  If you want, I can send you off-list a previous answer on the same issue I sent someone on PCT-L.

  Hi All,
  My name's Michael Cravens and I'm from St. Louis, MO.  I have only posted one other time here previously so I'm sure most won't recognize me; still, I would be grateful for a bit of advice.  A friend and I are planning a CDT northbound thruhike for this year and I have a couple of questions.  First, is it unreasonable to plan on starting the first of April and taking our time getting through New Mexico? Secondly, I'm aware that Justin Lichter was accompanied by his dog on the trail, and I plan on trying to get in touch with him, but does anyone here know of any other dogs that have thruhiked the CDT? 
  Thanks very much,
