[cdt-l] back from 2001 hike

Thanks Jonathan, I appreciate your efforts.  If anything about this whole 
planning process has me troubled, it's the idea I may have to spend hundreds 
of dollars on maps that most say aren't all that accurate and outdated.  I 
look forward to your completed project.  

By the way, which maps did you end up using for NM?
