    Thanks. Yes, definitely "wiser camping." We do travel with a generator. When we used to do CW, he even slept in the overhang of our gooseneck (w/a double bed mattress) and used a generator in the trailer and parking lot. Still, we were pretty hard core primitive for awhile, starting in 1993 with the 1st "Red River Campaign." Our tent was just a canvas fly and we often tied it to the trees, sans poles. We made a bed with a rubber "gum blanket" on the bottom, then western saddle pads, then a bedroll, with a pillow case to stuff with your clothes at night to make your pillow, only 2 pairs of socks, underwear, etc. I would tie anything I didn't want to lose onto my hat, or the tent at night. The horse carried us AND their grain, AND our extra water (for us, of course.) Our horses had to drink from streams or creeks and, if they were fussy, they went thirsty, but I don't remember having that problem. I think it's more of a show horse problem, anyway.
    Glad I did it when I was younger bc it was kinda an Olympian experience. =D

    Colorado has a lot of really nice trails I would go north into the national forest trails they'll be the most scenic (verrrryyyy beautiful) but kind of out of the way for example if you went to rosevelt national forest national park which is very near livermore colorado I believe it's a 45-1hr drive with a horse trailer as there are steep grades and switch backs for a bit.


    Or if you went south garden of the gods is also a choice location with overnight stableing very near as well
