LOL, that's funny....   

What I like about Johathan's maps, the route is already traced with the main 
route in red and alternates traced in purple.  Cross country (non trail) is 
dashed in either red or purple.

I believe Jonathan's main route was drawn in conjunction with Jim Wolf's 
guidebooks, perhaps the alternatives, but until he's actually on the trail, 
it's too early to tell whether they will be of value of not.

Anyway, I haven't talked to a person yet that isn't "often lost" on the CDT, 
whatever maps they use.  Even with the strip maps in question, I would hope 
I'd have a general idea of where I am and could (should be able to) get back 
to the area depicted.  

Perhaps the most daunting non-feature of the maps is lack of emergency 
bailout points.
