How about just "Mexico to Canada" or vice versa?

Subject: [Cdt-l] CDT completion rocker patch

I'll admit it. I'm a real dork when it comes to trail patches. The fact
that nobody offers a CDT completion rocker patch like the AT and PCT does
seems wrong, so I'm going to have my own printed up. You know what I'm
talking about, right? The rocker patch is the little mileage patch meant
to be displayed beneath the official trail patch. I post this to ask three
questions;

#1  Any opinions on what the patch should say? I'm thinking mileage, but
how to gauge the miles I hiked? The AT rounds down to "2000 Miler" as does
the PCT "2600 Miler". I took the Anaconda cut-off, so I for sure didn't
hike 3000 miles, although the CDT is always called a 3000 mile trail and
3000 is a nice round number. Which leads me to my next question;

#2  If I did have a bunch of these printed, who would want one? I think
the embroidery place will give a volume discount, but how to agree on
actual miles hiked on that patch. Personally I don't care what ya hiked,
but would it be more accurate to have it say "2800 Miler" or something?

#3  Any internet savvy folks search for a retailer that makes them small
enough? I found a few embroidery sites, but their curved rocker patches
are kinda big.
