    That's great, good job. I had seen your post-video on Ridecamp.
    Thanks for sharing with us.
    OD and Vermont are on my bucket list.

    Cangrats to you and your DH, and of course Sultan & George!!

    Really love the the OD cover shot! Are you the cover girl for this year?

    Those trails look alot like the ones I ride in the Talladega Forest! I can't imagine doing 100 miles of that terrain...

    How long did it take you to ride it?

    Not to steal Dawn's thread (cause I'm too lazy to make my own ) but I wanted to add some pictures of her ride for you all...from the "crew" standpoint...which was a BLAST!

    The day/night before the ride...

    My drive into the mountains of VA...


    Dawn's pups hanging out at the trailer...true endurance dogs!

    Ride meeting

    The start...5:15 AM
    And yes, that is exactly what it looked like

    First hold...sun coming up

    Crew bags...crew bags EVERYWHERE

    View climbing to another hold...we were officially "in the woods"


    George & Sultan

    Getting dark = glow sticks & head lamps

    And the best part of all...the finish & completion!

    Can't congratulate Dawn & Dean enough...their horses were in excellent shape both mentally & physically and they are great horse people!

    Now...for my speech. Just kidding, there isn't one. Just go crew, volunteer (or better yet ride!) at one of these awesome events. You won't regret it. You're never too young or old to get started...and you most definitely need to put crewing for a 100 mile endurance ride on your bucket list...just don't fall asleep at the finish line and forget where you are (*guilty*)

    EL6: thanks so much for posting these pictures and the video was exciting!!

    That looks like such fun; I hope I can crew on a 100 mile ride, definitely on my bucket list

    Ride time was 17 hours and 6 minutes. There were also about 4 hours of mandatory hold times, so my butt wasn't in the saddle quite all of those hours. We started at 5:15am saturday and crossed the finish line about 2:20am sunday!!

    And EL was fantastic crew. It was so nice to get to meet her, though we didn't have nearly enough time to just sit and chat. Hopefully our paths will cross at some point again in the future!

    Hey Phantom, what is your training like for two months leading up to a 100?

    I'm hoping to try a two day - two horse 100 again this fall. Maybe a 2 day - 1 horse hundred next spring. Put the Tevis on my bucket list (if health holds up) - might change that to OD :). A lot closer!
