I only looked at your route through the Elks, which is making me extremely jealous.
That's a lot of route finding to put together, but there are a lot of trails in Colorado.
I assume you'll take the Government Trail from Aspen to Snowmass? That's an easy one, but I bet there are scenic trails to link all these together. Finding them all is a huge task!

Perhaps I missed this, but have you checked with the Cielo Vista Ranch to see if they'll accommodate you prior to their usual late June opening?

No, I haven't yet. They are at the top of the list for private property owners I need to contact. If the snow doesn't start soon though, I wouldn't be surprised to see their opening date pushed up. Basically, I'll start ASAP.

Once a probable start date is selected, i will have an itinerary. The actual day I climb any given peak however, may change by as much as 3 or 4 days from what that itinerary says at the beginning. I certainly expect to have people join up with me for pieces or peaks. Stay tuned!
Peter, blowdowns are a pain but I've dealt with many many miles of them in the past. I don't think they'll impede decent mileage on most days.

I'm looking into the Spot that can pair with a smartphone and also the normal one. We'll see. I definitely want to be able to do at least location check ins on trail.
I've added a short bio page to the website. On it I also introduce my partner for the expedition.
I'll be doing an update later this evening, but the highlights are basically - my buddy Luke is going to join me, I've completed the first draft of the day by day itinerary, there are a few minor route changes, the private land issue seems to be only potentially problematic in a few places, and there's a really cool swimming hole i found on the route (god bless google earth).
I hope everyone's plans for the year are also coming together....it's a year to make things happen!
