Put it this way, only the CDNST is common to both..

On guides,Ray Jardine also has a CDT pocketplanner. What is good about it
is he has suggested treks, ie, 4, 5, month, etc, with suggested food
drops and suggested maps to use.

Jims guides give quad map names. There would be to many to carry for a
whole CDT trek. But the quad names are great in that you can goto the
USGS site, enter a quad name, and get a list of waypoints, good if your
carrying a GPS. Mant of the points in each quad are right on the route,
or close to it. Waypoints are in Lat\Long, which most of the FS maps use.
If your have maps with a UTM grid, all you have to do is switch, which fo
land navigation use is a lot easier to use than Lat\Long.
