Well, I just spent 2 hours trying to figure out where and when on your itinerary (as well as donated to the AZT Association. grin) So maybe I am 70% of the way there.

I think you would like me to join you at Rincon Creek for the huff over the Rincon Mountains? Maybe this would be from Dec 26 to Dec 30? Let me now if that is what you have in mind.

Any of these areas would be great to go through...just getting out and exploring new territory is fun. I also need to find out if this section is "dog friendly". You're not allergic to dogs are ya?

I think having different people connect up with you on different sections could be a pretty nice way of doing a route like this...
