This post makes me hate the prices in California even more.. haha
The cheapest gas around here is $3.99 and some are at 4.23. It's rediculous. I've actually taken a lot more trips with the trailer this year.. since it's my first summer with big shows and with a trailer, and with me and beau really clicking now.. I actually want to travel a lot more. We even went to a show 5 hours poor parents. Haha

Most of our riding is done around our place, so it didn't effect us too much.

I am just sure the blame will be placed on Hurricane Gustav, even though it hasn't yet hit our Gulf Coast to interfere with the oil rigs---
Funny, my husband and I were just having that conversation too. Usually when the price of wheat goes up it takes awhile for the bread price to rise. The second a ripple happens in the gulf of mex and the per barrel price goes up, the price at the pump jumps
We set our trailer up out by the hitching rails yesterday. This morning my husband had the cook stove going with the old graniteware percolator bubbling with coffee. I went out in my jammies, he had my horse all brushed and ready to saddle. Guess we are having a pretend camping trip in the front yard this labor day

The price of gas totally busted up our summer. I usually dread for school to start back for my kids cause we have had so much fun over the summer....this year I was glad when they went back. I feel like if we have the gas money to get there...we don't have the money to do anything once we are there. We went on 1 overnight camping trip this summer and that's it. My poor kiddos The thing that saved that last month of summer freedom was us getting Major. My kids can't ride him....hes to hyper....but they love him anyway and look forward to helping me feed and brush him and pet him. Gives em something to look forward to in an otherwise boring summer.

I haven't had a lot of time to do what it is I have been wanting to do but if I had had the time, the price of gas would have not affected it. The only thing I really do now, is plan out trips for errands a bit better, try to prevent not needed or extra trips.

We haven't rode as much as have in past. First it got really hot, then my mare got a stone bruise on her elbow as big as my fist that took awhile to go down, then when I rode her again she took a bad fall going down a trail (she actually did a cartwheel) so it was back to the vet to have her checked out. Had her shod, then it was hot, hot & dry and she started hard breathing so back on meds. We finally got rain which helps. I rode her yesterday first time in weeks.
Gas hasn't been a problem as we are just a few miles from state forest parks. We did horse camp one weekend but I rode my husbands mare. Gas is $3.55 to $3.66. It was $3.99. It's just been an agravating summer in more ways than one.

We haven't gone anywhere horse related either...well I lied we went to a little arena to ride around but its like 10 minutes from our house so its not really going anywhere lol this summer we did alot of outside work im getting ready to build a new barn and an arena (a small one though) and then...whats next after that...a new deck in the front and probably some other stuff o a new garage for those gas sucking heaps of metal. So i've been pretty stationary this summer as well,
Gas here got to 5 dollars a gallon here then it started dropping but its gone back up for labor day grrrrrr

I just got back from Europe where the gas prices are $2,50/L (in Canadian funds) vs the $1.25 we are paying right now. Mind you their vechiles are smaller and require fulling less often but I think that kind of cost would choke me up
