[Cdt-l] Benchmark

Should be no more than 10 days from Lincoln to East Glacier.  Next time I do 
this section I"m skipping Benchmark and pack a few more noodles.

That's just me.  I like taking a day off from hiking out on the trail- just 
sitting around a campsite.

And I'm always on a tight budget.
