Continental Divide Trail Map

Packing for the Trek

My departure date is rapidly approaching! After several months of planning and preparation, I leave for New Mexico tomorrow morning. I'm flying to Aberquerque with my wife Peggy. We'll rent a car and drive to the trailhead in Cumbres Pass, where I will say goodbye to Peggy and begin my southbound hike through New Mexico. I'm really excited to finally beginning this adventure!! My plan to spend roughly 5 weeks hiking southbound from the Colorado border to the Mexican border, a distance of roughly 670 miles. This represents about 25% of the entire Continental Divide Trail. If all goes per plan, I will complete the entire CDT and thus the Triple Crown by 2016.

Things are a bit crazy here at home right now, so this entry is going to be short and sweet. I'll fill in more details as I go along.
