The maps can be hard to read when printed on regular sized paper.  That's one of the reasons we also used the forest maps etc. in conjunction with 
Jonathan's maps on our hike. Also some of the side roads and trails are not shown on his maps, so if you get off track or want to choose another route 
(i.e. to avoid the Knife Edge in Colorado) you really need the maps that show clearly what other trails and roads are out there.   We used his maps happily, 
but there were times that the other maps were essential as well.
The main value of Jonathan's maps, IMO, are the trail notes.  They describe obscure turns and places where people got lost and a few water sources 
that aren't in the guidebooks yet.  I found that helpful.  The topographic information was also helpful in areas where the NF maps didn't show contour 
lines -- but that information is also in the Wolf guidebooks.  (One of the things I liked about the guidebooks was that every elevation change over 50' 
was shown in the data section at the back of each chapter.)

It's a video diary (meaning,in this case, that the viewer gets a glimpse of what I experienced, bothinternally and externally) covering 800 miles of trail between WatertonLakes, Canada and Yellowstone National Park. Here's some detailed info:Wilderness Film and Video Productions announces the release of a new DVD,Continental Divide Trail Diary: Montana/Idaho. The DVD took award-winningfilmmaker Thomas (Tim) Hogeboom took ten years to complete. [If you haveLynne Whelden's How To Hike the CDT video, check out the first section,"Crash and Burn" which is also the starting point for CDT Diary: MT/ID. Continental Divide Trail Diary: Montana/Idaho is a 76 minute videodiary of Hogeboom's 800 mile trek from the Canadian border to YellowstoneNational Park in Wyoming. The film details Hogeboom's hike along theContinental Divide Trail through Glacier National Park, the Bob Marshall andScapegoat Wilderness, the Anaconda Pintler Wilderness, the BeaverheadMountains, and all the way to Old Faithful geyser in Yellowstone. AlthoughHogeboom intended to complete the trek in nine weeks back in 1998, it tookhim eight years instead. Along the way, he got lost multiple times,experienced grizzly and black bear encounters, a serious tick disease, snow,plagues of flies and mosquitoes, the loss of a parent, a hospitalizationfor dehydration, and the repercussions of world events (9/11 in particular).One of Hogeboom's hiking partners suffered a trip-ending injury and anotherwas bitten by a disease-carrying tick. Luckily for the viewer, the backdrop for these sobering and sometimeshumorous events is the drop-dead gorgeous Continental Divide through Montanaand Idaho. Yes, it's possible to admire the Rockies from the comfort of atour bus, but viewers of CDT Diary: MT/ID get to see the spine of the dividefrom the point of view of a long distance hiker - up close, and in thiscase, very personal. This is not just a tour of the Continental Divide Trail, it's the storyof what happens to an aging hiker who experiences both transcendentalmoments and life-altering events. It was shot in digital video and produced as a DVD. Nearly all of thefilming locations were far from any roads, accessible only on foot (orhorseback). Hogeboom walked the entire route, an unbroken line of footstepsacross Montana and Idaho.Tim Hogeboom is a filmmaker/videographer with over thirty yearsexperience in film and television. In 1992, Hogeboom produced theaward-winning film, North to Katahdin on the Appalachian Trail, which hasbeen seen by over twenty million viewers worldwide. [Hogeboom carriedprofessional 16 mm film equipment over 2,100 miles in the course of filmingNorth to Katahdin.] He lives in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont.To obtain a DVD copy of Continental Divide Trail Diary, please contactHogeboom at (802) 563-2934 or email thogeboom at fairpoint.net You may alsosend 19.95 + 2.75 (S & H) = $22.70 (make checks payable to Wilderness Film &Video) to:Tim HogeboomWilderness Film & Video Productions1688 Noyestar RoadHardwick, Vermont 05843 You can view a sample of the footage by going towww.wildernessfilmandvideo.com andclicking on DVDs/Videos, then click on Crash and Burn.
