I  've stopped at both the Circle A and the Cuban Motel. The Circle A reeks of nostalgia of the old southwest. The building itself is over 100 years old and contains many artifacts and books of the old southwest. It has a modern kitchen one can use. However it caters to large groups. I was there on a week end with an elementary school class and parents. The next night there was a 50 year hi-school reunion group. Didn't get much sleep.

  The Cuban motel is definitely not luxurious, but its quite and there is a great cafe across the street. The owners are true trail angels. I droped in after a day in the desert without food or water with sever foot problems. The owners feed me supper and eventually drove to to Grants so I could continue my hike. So take your pick.

> now re: water at borderline co-op north of columbus - the water will only be turned on when ben and carol are there which won't be very much of the time - I got her to okay water being cached there for the nobo's - we will drop the water off as I take you to the border - if it gets to the point that they won't allow water to be cached there is a windmill and stock tank about 1/4 mile to the NE of borderline - I know the rancher and he said it is okay to use the water there - just don't "wash up" in it

> I talked to trekker bob and he said he didn't need anything. His maps didn't show "red rock road" or FR 851 and that is where the new sections of the CDT down from Burro peak dump them. Water is still good in three places North of Burro Peak to Red Rock Road however until there are new maps out that show this leg I don't think many will come my way.

> Would you be willing to send out the following message to the CDT-L on my behalf? I have tried numerous times to send it with no luck. Nothing. I have contacted the list admin. No response.
> 
> We have promised to get this tracker map going in conjunction with CDTA (Teresa Martinez) but I cannot seem to get thru.
> 
> The tracker will be very beneficial to you to know where hikers are. For example Jerry Brown is out there right now mapping west of Separ. You can see him on the map.
> 
> Here's the message I'd like to send. The service is free.
> Best,

> There's now a CDT 'social tracker' for SPOT users available for viewing/use at http://trackleaders.com/cdt

> The tracker will also be embedded on the CDTA website.
> 
> 
> This tracker is free to use and embed on blogs or journals. Just send along your SPOT 'shared page' link and approximate start date to info at trackleaders.com and you're up. Unlike SPOT shared pages, this tracker archives data permanently and offers other functionality such as average speed, overnight location (useful for journals) and CDT route (kml) overlay.

> It does not, however, publicize help or SOS signals sent from users' SPOTs.

> Hi folks,
> 
> 
> 
> Just got back from a four day trek in the Gila Wilderness, NM. We ventured up the west fork and came back down the middle fork rivers. 
> 
> 
> 
> -As of Sunday April 11th the river crossings up the middle fork river are still prety high.
> 
> -We came down from the middle fork from the meadows (can't remeber the distance up that is, but I think it's like 12 miles up the middle fork) area so we had at least 40 stream crossings on the way back down.
> 
> -In most cases on a stream crossing we had to bush wack up or down the trail to find a safe place to cross where the water looked not as swift or deep.
> 
> -We are all around six feet tall and the highest the water level got was a little above our waist.
> 
> -We were discussing how if the water was any much higher than our waist then the water would be swift enough to throw off the center of gravity and potentialy sweep you down stream.
> 
> -The middle fork also had a lot of sediment in it so you could'nt really see the bottom and where you where putting your feet. The west fork was a lot more clear and was easier to see how deep the water was and places to put your feet.
> 
> -IMO I think treking poles are an absolute nesessity for balance and gauging water depth.
> 
> 
> 
> We took photos of the trip and my buddy put them on his flikr account. Here is the link.
