My Locale Earth (mostly)
About Me Semi-retired from a govt type job working on the side. Goal here is more MPD in a UL, yet comfy style to experience scenic hikes without sweating buckets, but also crank out miles if needed for whatever. Mix hikes with travel too. Not into snowy sagas or recreating a French Foreign Legion forced desert march .. but never say never.

Gear list was for 3 days but made it almost as a "24-hour" adventure (like 25 hours) using the Z-pack

Southbound CDT Thru
Definitely good stuff. As for spending more time in each, been thinking it might be worth getting a vehicle, parking it at the TH at each, … the Gila, San Juan's, etc.. and spending several ...

Re: Sharing (Or Not) Locations and Logistics on the Web.
