That would be light packing- few supplies- let the legs stretch a bit and be
back to your house and then on my way- I am liking this idea.  Very
encouraging info.  thanks.

you don't need marking on the trail - 56 miles from the border back to our
house - average hiker does it in 2 1/2 days

Using the CDTS route- 


Does the CDTS do any marking along their route?


How far by road and trail from the border up to Demming?  


The thought is crossing my mind I could start at Demming and head north from


the thought also crossed my mind I could start at Cumbres Pass and head
south.   I have done the South San Juan Wilderness up to San Louis Pk.  wow-
that is such a great piece of trail.  it seems to natural to walk north-
thought I have hiked south from the Canadian border to Lincoln, MT.  So,
yes, I guess I can hike south.  I am just afraid IF I did start at Cumbres I
couldn't resist the draw to head north from there .  


Oh well, it has been a long two years for me.  I have a new body part inside
now and think after Sept 22 when the part starts working I will be healed
and on the trail again.  I can hardly wait. 


I registered on the CDTS website today.    So positive!!
