Well, I don't know exactly how I should feel about that, lucky or cursed. That's not so different than the type of country I commonly ride in. The only thing that I've been short on the last couple of years is the groundwater as I have to ride a few miles to get to any sort of creek.
Granted, I normally don't lope my "trails" (unless I'm working cattle and have no choice)...but then again, where I ride, there are very few trails that have more than deer or cows using them (neither of which have to worry about low hanging branches). I just have to pick my way through wherever I can
