[Cdt-l] Benchmark

Most thru-hikers don't like to pack more than 5-6 days of food, because of
the weight. Plus, their packs aren't designed for it. Benchmark, if it works
out, is a good opportunity to break up the ~175-180 miles between East
Glacier & Lincoln without losing much time. Without Benchmark, Augusta
becomes an almost-necessary hitch.  -Ron

I have hiked from East Glacier to Lincoln with a couple of ladies and we
used the Benchmark Ranch. But from Benchmark down to Lincoln was like only 4
days if I remember correctly.  Why not just pack a little more food and just
skip Benchmark?  It would save some time, too.
