Off to my first LD :)

Been getting Luka ready for our first LD this weekend. We are headed to the High Roller in TX. Hope to win a turtle award, lol! Wish us luck!

Here we are this past weekend up in the hills. He's had the rest of the week off in prep for traveling and running this weekend.

Tell David and faye I said Hi!! Oh, and Dr. Gail Conway!

Have a great ride! If it is wet, go SLOW through the wet stretches, and if it is dry, go SLOW in the sand. I think they are the same places.

Good Luck!!

Stuck in 3 feet of snow at -30C... I'm TOTALLY JEALOUS!!!
I can only dream of my next LD, many months away.

Have a great week end. Enjoy the ride, that's what it's all about.
And now you have come back with a nice story and pictures of course.

Thanks Nancy for that tip! It should be fairly dry. We set up camp mostly in the dark last night. I remembered most everyhting, but should have brought more electric step in posts...their local feed store was out of them. :( its enough but I would have rathered a few more.

It is 27 degrees at 7am! Lol soeone has been on the tractor setting up more panels and the local birds have been cheering them on quite loudly since 6 :)

Now I just need to convince myself to crawl out of my toasty sleeping bad and get some breakfast started. I brought my older teen daughter (she rides, but not endurance) and she is going to hep me crew :)...I'm just glad she and I are spending time together.

I'm presuming you mean David, the ride manager? If so, I will. He was very nice on the phone :)

Yes, that is him!!! Faye is his mother. Have a GREAT time!

Watchout for Darolyn's horses!! One year, during the ride meeting, they broke out and ALL 10 or so took off down the trail! The ranch was bigger then, and I don't remember how long it took to catch them!!

Good Luck!!!
