>Thanks, Ginny and Jim, for a great description of the differences among long
>trails. Many of your comments about CDT '99 mirror my experiences on PCT
>'77: incomplete route, poor trail marking, poorly constructed trail,
>occasional bushwhacking, bad (to the point of amusing) guidebooks and maps,
>and rare encounters with other hikers. Perhaps in another quarter
>century--if folks are still interested in long-distance hiking--the CDT will
>be like the current PCT in those respects.
>That thought--and your terrific description of the scenic advantages that'll
>never be equaled--make me want to see the CDT sooner rather than later!
