Been there - done that. We've moved from NY to PA and now SC. I don't miss the snow and due to the warmer weather, riding in the middle of winter is like late fall/early spring up north.
We used to go on "he-man breakfast rides" up north. 10 to 15 riders, ~10 degrees, snow and ice on the ground, frozen creeks, a 3 hour ride to the VFW hall for breakfast (horses were tethered), then a 3 hour ride back to the ranch. Our horses had borium welded to their shoes and we carried WD-40 to spray on their hooves so the snow wouldn't ball up.
Down here, when other riders are staying home because it's below 50, a few of us have the trails to ourselves.
I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.
Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
It's not always what you say but what they hear.
