 Having thru hiked the AT and section hiked most of the PCT, I want to start
section hiking the CDT. Since I am in the US this summer for a family
reunion, I am planning to hike south-bound from the Northern Terminus for
about 400 to 600 miles.
I have not done too much reading yet, though have followed some other
hiker's journal.
Perhaps somebody can give me some quick answers on the following:

1) Which is the best town to fly into (I will be coming from Maine, New
England area)
2) Best way to get to the Northern Terminus, I believe there are two
3) Best way to get around the permits when the exact dates are not clear
4) How do the daily mileages in Montana compare to the AT or PCT (e.g. High
5) Anybody else in the area late July and August?

Thanks for your help
