Good luck with the trip Brooks, I am sure you will love the CDT!
On the Idaho ICT, have you done the trail or do you know of anyone who has done it? I would be interested in finding out what sort of quality of experience it would provide and how wild it is. Looking at the Idaho map it certainly looks quite wild and entertaining. 
Martina and I have visited the south only to rock climb at 'City of Rocks' which is in a lovely desert region. Also the Sawtooth Wilderness is, I think very scenic - there are a few classic rock climbing routes in the area.

Subject: [Cdt-l] My CDT

The countdown has begun. I plan on starting at Crazy Cook on April 15. I put a map on my blog: http://brooksmapped.blogspot.com/2012/02/final-countdown.html 

I don't know if everyone would count it as the CDT since I'm intentionally skipping sections in favor of other places I've always wanted to go.

 I've seen some posts about people looking for another trail to hike, and might I suggest the Idaho Centennial Trail: http://parksandrecreation.idaho.gov/recreation/idahocentennialtrail.aspx It's kind of a mini CDT with the desert of the Snake River valley, mountains of central Idaho and glaciated features of Northern Idaho and arguably more remote in some areas. There website has a lot of great info including GPS tracks.

Good hiking,
