    Default Timing/pace question

    I'm trying to sketch out a tentative plan for the CDT and it comes out to about 5 months, does this sound right?
    NM: 7 weeks
    CO: 6 weeks
    WY: 3 weeks
    ID/MT (Yogi cutoff, -300 mi): 6 weeks

    I'm thinking in a low snow year, start CO on June 1, this would finish me up around Sept 13.

    People who've done it, do these times relative to one another seem right?

    Here was my splits from Ď20
    Start May 30
    NM - 24 days (eased into mileage, took Gila)
    CO - 25 days (almost no snow, 100% CDT)
    Wy - 16 days
    ID/MT - 29 days (Took Anaconda but not Mackís inn)
    Total -94 including all (3) zeros and neros

    My gut feel is that CO will take you longer because you will likely have more snow than I had due to my late start. Also, the winds may be hard depending on route. So much depends on start date, route and conditions but it probably isnít a bad start.

    Thanks, obviously for an 18 mpd hiker the times are longer, but I feel like the proportions are close. I wouldn't have thought CO was longer than NM, good stuff.
