I'm not a CDT expert, but I think if you look in the "Thru Hiker Rules Manual" it clearly states a Thru hike of the CDT does not count unless you pay BIG bucks and start or end your hike from Crazy Cook.  
Can anyone back me up on this?

If anyone decides to use the Columbus Southern Terminus I recommend getting in touch with Keith and Mary. Jessie and I felt much better about starting after talking with him and caching some water. He took us for a drive the day before we started and showed us the major landmarks to look for before departing. This really helped when beginning to navigate. To top it off, he called some of the folks on the trail where we could get water and let them know we were coming. It was nice walking up to a house in the middle of nowhere and being greeted by name.  Plus, he took us to two good Mexican restaurants, and I will not hold the rueben against him (inside joke). The price was definitely worth it and by the time he took us to Walmart (twice) and to the water cache I am pretty sure he actually lost money, but he seemed like a guy in it for the joy of meeting people. Obeachians gotta stick together!!!!
Jessie and I have made it close to Mimbres and stayed at the Black Range Lodge in Kingston. If you need a zero day this is the place. Great breakfast.
Jeremy and Jessica
