Hello everyone.  I thought it might be helpful for others if I posted
my (final) CDT itinerary from my 2009 hike.  Feel free to ask any

happy trails,
Dylan Carlson

- This was for a NOBO hike.  The pace in Idaho/Montana would likely be
unsustainable for a SOBO
- I took lots of zeroes in New Mexico because of blisters, and because
I wanted to delay for snowmelt in CO
- I am 26 years old, and started the hike in good physical shape.
Others were slower in NM.
- I took a 5-day break from hiking at Cumbres Pass.
- No zero days in all of Wyoming.
- I did not "flip" for weather reasons.  Glad I finished when I did, however.
- I took some shortcuts, including Mack's Inn, and Anaconda.
