I have been reading the cdt-l for years.  I hope the cancer stuff is behind
me now.  I had surgery on Aug 5 and hopefully that will get me back to
normal again and be the end to the cancer part of my life.  And next year I
will retire and move to AZ.  With all that in falling into place......


Finally, I think I will be able to schedule a return to the CDT in the
spring of 2013. I will be 64 and retired.  

I am planning on doing New Mexico as early in the year as I can to stay
ahead of the heat.   I am interested in discussing similar plans with
someone else close to my age. I am a male, but willing to hike with either a
male or female.  I am married, so no plans other than sharing the trail with
someone.    I hike too slow for most youngsters, but I would enjoy some
company to share the decisions with along the way.  I am looking at a
March/April hike, or one starting no later than around April 1 and ending in
mid-May.  I am interested in as little road walking as possible- I am
somewhat of an adventurous sort by nature.  I use the trail name of Trew.  I
would really like to start at Crazy Cook's Corner unless someone can talk me
into believing another starting place is better.  


I am now beginning to put plans in place.  I have Jonathan Ley's maps CD
from 2006.  Do I need to up grade?   


I have about 800 CDT miles done in Colo, WY and MT.  None in NM so I would
like to make it up to Cumbres Pass.  If the snow is deep in the San Juans I
can go home for a month or two and then come back and pick up Colorado if I
so desire. But for now, New Mexico is my target.   Any suggestions or
comments or advice would be appricated.
