Nothing ever goes as planned. No matter how much research and YouTube binging you do on any subject, having the experience is always, always profoundly different. The start of my CDT thru-hike did not defy this expectation. One minute I was visualizing in my head being there, the next minute I was there with 85 miles of desert between me and the next McDonalds. It would be a long way to go.
Today I say farewell to Truth or Consequences and start the trip to Crazy Cook. We've been here about 6 months which I've put almost training 500 miles along the Rio Grande. Along the way I've taken photos of some of the sights and put a few together in this video, please enjoy.
Well campers, it's Friday and day five of Patrick's thru hike on the CDT. Without cell phone service in the southern desert of New Mexico I can only rely on a facebook chat (once on Weds) and the twice daily SPOT check ins. It is a bit nerve-wracking as he approaches the time for his first resupply.
