Hahahah Joe you are a riot. I don't know how to pause my GPS either. I don't know if there is such a thing.

I have a Trip Computer page on my Garmin Venture HC. I have it set to record miles on the trip odometer, speed (which is at the current rate and it of course fluctuates, moving time, max speed, stopped, (I think this shows the minutes/hours that you are standing still - hahaha, not really totally sure on that one!) moving average speed, time of day and Odometer which keeps a running tally of miles.

I have other choices such as elevation but because I live on the coast on the flat land I couldn't care less about that. I would change that if I were riding some place where it mattered.

Joe, I can lock the cells if that will help you. That way you can't delete the formulas but can add data. I can remove the goal and add speed and average speed.

Well my lazy frozen southern rear made it 3.44 miles before wimping out in the 45 degree day. It was so windy that the horses were total bundles of nerves. They were snorting and blowing the whole way. We pretty much kept a slow pace. I was amazed that a covey of quail flew up in our faces and they didn't really react that much.

January 2 –

3.44 miles
max speed 7.5 mph moving time 55 minutes 30 sec
Moving average 3.7 mph

My GPS, you just have to switch it to 'on foot'. Its a Garmin and it works really well. Mine holds a charge for about 12 hours when unplugged.

No ride today but I hope to get out Wednesday and most certainly Friday.

I made my first ride today of the year in Tyrrell Park. It was a 6.9 mile ride and 1.8 miles of it were a solo ride. Biscuit and I have been working on his "go away from other horses" skills and he is doing fantastic. He wanted to go out at the trail head today and we had a skirmish - but I won. It was terrific to have such a wonderful breakthrough and I will be riding solo more!

I used my little Contour Roam camera today and filmed some short segments

Celeste, PM me your email and I will send it out.

I am going riding tomorrow with my barn buddy. I ordered me a Tipperary helmet and it came in today. I am going to put my mounting piece on the helmet so I can put the Contour camera on it.
