[Cdt-l] 5 days on the CDT

My daughter and three Tibetans and I just did about 30 miles on the CDT in Centrl Colorado.  The weather was beautiful and the sites were great. The fall colors were just beginning and the weather was cool but nice.  We had mostly good weather and great views of several of the 14'ers and the CDT.  I felt very good at age 74 and blessed with good health to enjoy our time out.  Read the sections we did on the trail and were grateful for the helpful information.  I have also climbed 52 of the 14'ers, but at age 74, I suspect I won't get the remaining 4, but still love and appreciate the beauty of the Colorado high country and the views from the CDT.

Sincerely, Bill Duckworth

Hey Furniture-

Congrats on finishing! Great meeting you way back at Ghost Ranch this late spring. You were arriving as I was leaving, but you quickly went on to pass me in true CDT thru-hiker fashion. Which is to say, quickly and without my even seeing you do it. Also in broad daylight, such that one moment your Salamon XA tracks just suddenly appeared on the road in front of me. On the CDT I believe this is known as having a social encounter.

Thanks for keeping the list up-to-speed over these recent months. It'd be nice if more hikers would follow your lead in that regard.

All best,

- blisterfree

CDT Friends,

I'm very excited to give you an update since I sent my request to cdt-l
only a couple days ago.

YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU - That's pretty amazing!

I don't know what you said to your friends and neighbors, but I'm so
excited for all the responses and new tallies that are coming in from the
accountant's office each hour. I cannot thank you enough for all the
support, the online donations and checks that you have so quickly pledged
to help me reach this goal. With these funds, we will help make 2013 a
great volunteer season on the CDT and match all the grants coming our way
to do more good work with our dedicated volunteers. In fact, let's raise
MORE than $1000! That just means more grant dollars and more trail work!
Don't stop now...

It's not too late: If you haven't made a contribution yet, join in the fun.
*We only have $1000 to gather up before midnight on Sunday.* That's only 20
more people giving at the $50 level. And only 10 at the $100 level. TODAY
ONLY: The first five online donations of $100 or more will receive a free
CDT Montana collapsible/portable cooler - great for some more mellow
adventures this fall.

Donation info is located at this link: http://cdtmontana.org/donate.html. Thank
you for doing what you can! I appreciate the rally-hat push this week. I
cannot wait to return to the office on Monday to see what
we've contributed over the weekend.

This is a great Friday, indeed!  Many thanks to each of you.
