My tentative plan is to start NM from Antelope Wells around April 20th with 
the idea of getting to Charma mid-June with the least amount of road walk, 
taking the scenic route.  My map and compass skills are adequate at best and 
since they haven't been truly tested, I'm allowing time to get tuned on the 
trail.  I'm also not planning on many 20+ mile days, atleast until later in 
the hike, breaking in slowing.

There's a very good chance I'll flip to Canada once reaching Charma, but that 
all depends on snow in the San Juans (and Montana).  My reasons being, if I 
have to flip I'd like to hold it to one and at the same time using Jim Wolf's 
guidebooks, as written, in a north to south fashion.  I really don't feel the 
one time flip will break up the continuity of my hike and I'm beginning to 
like the idea of starting and ending in NM.  Having a friend in Albuquerque, 
to get me (or us) on and off the trail, doesn't hurt either.

I think it would be ideal to start with a small, flexible group.  Stay in
