This is a thought I never had when I got up yesterday and when I was going
to bed the idea of hiking nobo from Mexico for 2 or 3 weeks was running
around inside my head fir the first time. I am thinking hard about it all
day. I would like to be home before May 8 it that is possible. If we
started hiking around April 13 or 14 that would be my three weeks. And I
could be home before May 8.
Were you planning on following Ley's route, CDTA or CDTS or what? If I went
I would like to set the route into my GPS to minimize route problems and
maximize trail time. I prefer to minimize road walking as much as possible.
Jeep routes are ok, 2-tracks. If I could make it through the Gila
Wilderness in that amount of time I would be very much interested. If we
could start from say Crooks Monument and make it up to Hwy 60 would be a
good trip for me.
Have you thought about getting to the trail's beginning?
Other questions? I have family east of Phoenix, I"m stuck in Michigan.

I thought I'd respond to your email as well if that's OK. If I start at the
southern end, I would likely start mid to end of April of firsts of May and
head northbound at a similar pace per day. How would that work for you?
