Let's see, now.  He picked you up in Deming, which added over  100 miles to
the trip, then took you to another 45 miles over Jeep roads to the border.
Plus another 30 miles or so to cache your water for you.  It cost you more
than the $100 price than if you had just gone to Hachita in the first place.
You poor thing.   


Sam Hughes is a saint in my book for what he does.  Especially when you
consider how ungrateful certain people are. 


Nice of Keith to step right in and turn it into a shameless self promotion.
Beginning to understand Yogi's point. 


People who want to hike the actual CDT will go to Crazy Cook.

The $160 cost to Crazy Cook as a solo male hiker was all I could
afford..that and a 1qt of chocalate milk for Sam.  Given the documented $100
cost (and a phone conversation)...I was shocked.  It was completely
unexpected but after getting to Crazy Cook from Deming and seeing how my
first three water sources were Sam caches...I became indifferent.

Future hikers need this information so they can plan appropriately.  $160 to
the official strarting point (nice new monument by the way) or <$5 to

As trail angels in Grants, we understand the costs involved in water caches
and supporting the hikers. It would be a wonderful gesture to send Sam some
help as he has done so much to support the trail. Let's make some "trail
magic" for Sam, we are. Hugo and Carole in Grants NM
