Thanks a lot for the information on Chama.  I will be resupplying there in a week or so after Cuba, and it sounds like a great resupply point!

We have been advised by the Forest Service that the northernmost section 
of the CDT in New Mexico has now been constructed. This includes the 
Border Reroute (guidebook pages 14-16) and, as we understand it, the 
Brazos Ridge Reroute (page 17) as well. We suggest that hikers with GPS 
also try the Lagunitas Reroute (page 17).

The relocation from the Cruces Basin overlook to Lagunitas Creek has 
been approved, but not yet constructed.

We would welcome feedback from hikers about these new trail conditions.

Thanks for the fun stats.  If you're still messing around with the data, could we see a time trend of CD's mailed out by year?

You've also got my econ stats nerd brain thinking.  One could match the addresses to ZIP code or census blocks and get some interesting income/demographic characteristics... OK I'll shut up now.

Hi Melanie,Sorry we missed you last year. ?A lot of people in Chama don't really know about the trail and don't know a hiker when they see one. ?Not too many people hitch hike up that road. ?The grocery store is indeed open, it should be pretty easy to resupply out of there. ?The cafe you mentioned is called Carlatte's, and I'd second the reccomendation for either breakfast or lunch. ?There's also a pretty nice place to stay right next door called the Chama Station Inn. ?Both are 2 blocks away from the post office and the library for internet if you need it. ?The train opens on the 23rd which is this coming Saturday, so only a few days from now instead of a whole week or more. ?Good luck to everyone. ?Best, Laura Ryan
