Heck, I'd just take water and a snack. So the above list sounds good to me.


Lori, I am watching that video and yelling for you to go get in your bathtub. You people with extreme weather freak me out with how brave and casual you are about it.


Rick, it's not his look that I like, it's his talent - and well, I wouldn't mind some of his horses either.

Alex the Mikes is for after the ride when we are relaxing and listening to the band...
and as for the tornado I was not there... I would not have been on that drive. that was a coworker of Hubbies who took the video.
but later while hubbie was driving home he saw 3 funnels forming with tails and was all giddy about it... I was hollering for him to get his butt home...
If a tornado hit here I would be in my basement.
my bath tub is way up on the second floor.

Lori, I'm glad to hear they do not frequent your neighborhood.
I suggest BullFrog bug and sunscreen spray as it is the best I've used so far. If it keeps me bug free here in the swampy area then it should work wonders over yonder. I've gone so far as to soak some dryer sheets with it and keep them in a pocket, under saddle, bridle and hats to help avoid biters of the miniature version.
I know I have used dryer sheets alone without spray to keep them at bay also. Get a couple of cool packs that you normally keep in the first aid kit to take with you incase you get too hot or cramps from dehydration. Besides they feel great to just cool parts of the body down after a hot and humid ride.

Alex, does that mean there may still be a chance??

Country Woman, glad to see you back! Did you get the house painted in the nice colors you liked?

Critter, this is nasty. You must keep us posted so we know you're okay. Don't do a "no news is good news" thing or we'll worry. We're 2 hours from you, and you're getting the same storm just a few hours earlier. We've lost power three times and had gray-green-yellow skies. Yours are worse.

Also, for trail rides - water bucket for the horse, another bucket for rinsing them off after sweating from riding. Extra halter and lead rope - several horror stories here in KC about a guy breaking down on the road and unloading his horse; one horse was euthanized from injuries when a car hit them as they were unloading; it was fortunate the 2nd horse and the 2 people weren't hurt badly. Granola bars with protein or apples are great for carrying in saddle bag; bananas back at the trailer after the ride. In addition to the frozen water bottles, bring a bottle only half frozen - so you can be drinking it while the others thaw out. Peanut butter sammiches - no spoiling, not messy. Bug spray for you, roll-on fly spray in saddle bag to touch up horses' face and around eyes and inside ears and across rump. Wet ones for wiping chemicals and dirt and sweat off your hands. Hay nets to hang, muck bucket so you can keep your site clean. Lawn chair and umbrella (in case you don't have shade -- I'm terribly easy to sunburn). Camera! Have a WONDERFUL time!
