Rain rain go away
Come again some other day
You should only rain on days I work
Mother Nature is a jerk

If I were as brave as Joe4d
I wouldn't be so dry you see
He would go out in the rain
And think lazy people like me were a pain

Rain rain rain rain

Showers all weekend, probably won't get much riding time in...

I'll play along. Since 1/1/2012 I have logged about 17 miles. I have an app on my iPhone that tracks biking and walking journeys. I'll have to try it for riding. Not sure if I always have signal and if it will work but I'll give it a whirl.

Yep rain today all day. I'll ride in drizzel or occasional showers days, but don't bother with all day rainy days. It is after all supposed to be fun not miserable. When I get closer to race season I'll have to suck it up I guess.

Well Joe, if your hiding from the rain, then I guess we're in good company.
I need to get a little more ambitious with my riding.
I used to ride every day unless there was a tornado........

Celeste you are too funny!!!

I just got back from riding up at Ebenezer Park - we were bushwhacking through the forest on about 1/3 of the ride using our GPS's to find the waterfall. I had been there before but not the way we went and I couldn't have found it to save my life without my Garmin. Hahahahah one of my riding buddies had her Garmin and we were using a waypoint I pulled off of a friends trail. We found it!!! OMG we were so excited! Navigating is so much fun. We did do quiet a bit of trotting but a lot of walking due to wet conditions and being off the beaten path and in the boonies. Biscuit was an ANGEL. We did do some Dutch Oven cooking - we had Chicken Pot Pie one night with brownies and Chicken and Dumplin's the next night. We didn't ride Friday because the wind was blowing like crazy. It was threatening to rain buckets this morning so we didn't ride and came home. I normally would have wanted to ride but I was more than glad to come home as I found out hubby had a horsey accident yesterday while riding with our regular trail group.

We rode 14 miles so with my other miles I now have 51.5 miles.

I'm so jealous, but we really needed this rain. Our pond was about to dry up and now it is looking better. All the horse time I had this weekend was feeding in the rain.

Only thing I can get out of my garmin is speed and distance traveled. No idea how to use it to find something.
I rode out today though in 31 degrees and a light drizzle, endurance season is coming. Looks like I will be doing the 50 mile event at the Biltmore estate in NC

Joe, didn't they teach you to navigate in mariner school? My grandpa shipped out all of his life and he had this little book that he wrote down important stuff - and in that little book was degrees and minutes off the jetties to his favorite deep sea fishing spots. I just love that.

What kind of Garmin do you have? You can call Garmin and they will be more than happy to help you learn your Garmin and how to set it up to be the most helpful it can be on the trail. We have bearings so we know which way we are going, headings to we know where we want to go, distance to our waypoint plus I have a page set for speed, miles, average speed, time, etc. The longer I have my Garmin the more I learn about it and I really enjoy that part of it.

50 miles - wow - and I am worried about my 25 miler!! It is in less than 2 weeks. I think we will be just fine though.
