HERE THEY ARE. Finally, I know.
CDT Spreadsheet Data
This is a link to a spreadsheet with my estimated mileage, days, date, and address data. If you’re going to send a package or letter, please look here to see how it should be addressed. All addresses are United States Postal Services (USPS) unless marked as United Parcel Service (UPS). The spread sheet will be updated with an ACTUAL DATE as I move along the trail. I will not be changing the estimated date column or anything to do with the daily mileage. Not messing with the formulas while on my phone.
When there’s no walking scheduled for the day, it’s called a ZERO. Usually, there’s a lot of walking around town involved, but no trail miles. I’ve only scheduled one zero at East Glacier at the end of the first week. I’ll take another 10 to 30 zeroes or nearos (close to zero trail miles) to rest and recuperate, but I’m waiting to decide on when while I’m walking. The days off could drastically affect the Estimated Arrival date, so watch the actual date for the best idea of how things are going.
I’m so sick of boxes and maps. I’ve never put together as long a hike as this one, so I’m figuring it out as I go. Everything is boxed through south Colorado. I’m hoping Michelle will get me through the rest of the way. I’ve put together meals and have items laid out, but I don’t have a great idea of how much I’m going to be eating or how fast I’ll be able to move. She’ll be able to shove stuff in a box along with the next set of maps. Mistakes have been made I’m sure, but I’m just itching to get to the trail.
I haven’t been able to walk but a few quick 4 to 5 mile jaunts, so I’m not going to be hitting this in quite the shape I was hoping for. Regardless, the day approaches and I’ve gone so far down this path, there’s no looking or wishing for anything else now. It is what it is.
