I'll have to check that. I'm spending my time right now just studying the AZ portion. I was under the impression that the GWT lies a bit west of the CDT, but I guess it probably joins up somewhere north of Utah. Thanks for telling me about your contacts. I may need them. Over the next several months I'm going to start collecting USGS topos and trail maps and figure out exactly where the route goes and the elevations, for planning purposes. I'll start with AZ first, since I'm pretty familiar with that region. My traveling buddy is supposed to be doing the same for the Utah portion.
By the way, guys. Thanks for the info on pack saddles and related gear. I did a blog post on what I have found out. While I was doing it, I convinced myself to go with Decker-style saddles and Iron Cloth Utah paniers. I'm going to take a shot at making a set, just for the experience. If that doesn't work out, I'll be checking out Trailhead Supply :)
