Pikes Peak anyone?

So are you guys interested in doing Pikes Peak I am? It appears to be about 57 miles from our track so 114 miles total. Looks like we will just miss the big race.

With the race just a couple days later the road should be nice. It's just another thing to check off my list.

So just about done with the tracks for the 10 nights on the CDR "proper". I am really excited as the flow of the trip is really nice. I've included a diversion to Colorado's Pikes Peak, a camping night at the hot springs in Saratoga, Wyoming, a 1/4 day lolly-gag diversion/camping in the Tetons, Montana's Gravelly range loop, and a ghost town. Not a single day on the trail over 300 miles,and the median day length is 250 miles.

Having multiple GPXs files to chose from was like a fat kid on a cupcake--it was really nice to be able to cut, blend and modify for our needs.

The tally thus far:
--I don't think we'll need a GPX file for days 1-4 (to Demming)
--Days 5-15 are 99% complete
--Now to complile/GPX the maps on Google for days 16-23.

Ironically, I was really worried we'd have too much time homeward bound. Looks like max 7 days to fill. Naturally, those can also be slack days is the we hit weather or issues, but rather to have too much than too little!
