colorado trail yo-yo attempt on 06/21/2007 11:53:43 MDT Print View

I am out on the trail July 5th or 6th!!! Planning on 20-25 mpd/40-45 days. I have several resupply boxes ready to be sent out, but might consider buying along the way instead. I have not been on the colorado before, been a while since I have last been at altitude(I am a Philadelphia boy, so altitude is hard to find/lived in Montana/Idaho for a couple of years and fell in love with 'real' mountains, but it has been a couple of years since then), and I have yet to fully lose my winter gut. Because of this I might end up going even slower at the start which could make it hard to estimate where to send my resupply boxes. While I think it will be a rough start(first week or so I will probably still be adjusting to the terrain and losing my gut), I beleive I can succeed in a yo-yo as long as I can avoid injury.
