Jim Eagleton should be dropped from the list.? He is Rambler/toc.? 
I am not annoyed by classifying hikers as section or thru or even etc.? 
However, there are?several big problems. First, how do you define the classes, e.g. sobo flip, vs flip.? 
Second, everyones route on on the CDT is different,?so what characteristics should be used to describe it?? 
Do these groups imply a value judgement?? Is a flip better because it allows you to enjoy the high Colo evevations.? 
Is a non flip better because you don't have to use transportation??

Sage Clegg and i compiled this listr last year. I posted it to CDT-l and people? 
made corrections and such. 
Some folks were annoyed that we classified hikes as section, thru etc. 
Anyhow it is a pretty accurate snapshot.

I think your nobo counts are a bit high for this year; the sobo count is? 
pretty close.? In addition to Tomato, Evan, Joe, and Ed who have reached? 
Canada, the only other hikers I know of ahead of me were SpeedStick and? 
Voyageur.? I knew of a couple from Germany behind me as well as Paranoia? 
and one other who doubled back to go through the Gila after the fire? 
(and to avoid some of the snow) behind me. 
I left the trail in Helena and am now a "Chunk Hiker" having done 1200+? 
"Ley" miles in 2010 and 1025 miles this year.? I think a Ley Mile is? 
about 1.1 actual miles, based on the I have about 575 miles planned for? 
2012.? Voyageur is also a "Chunk Hiker" and will be completing the CDT? 
this year. 
As to sobo's, over two days I encountered 15 on August 8 and 2 on August? 
9 south of Lima, MT and there were a few, Gadget among them, who snuck? 
by me on the Macks Inn route while I was taking the Henry's? 
Lake/Centennial Mountains route (which I highly recommend).? I camped? 
one night with sobo hiker Poppins, but he was planning to leave the? 
trail in Yellowstone.? I did meet a few sectioners out on the trail, a? 
couple from Helena and another couple from Miles City.
