DW and I met up with Rhonda Lynn and her DH Hank, and another couple yesterday, for a ride along the Sylco Creek Trail in the Cherokee National Forest of Polk County TN.
There's a couple of things I learned about Rhonda Lynn yesterday.....first....she's a Texican. Second, she and I share a common passion (or maybe an obsession) in maps...and she's much more organized with them than I am. Her collection of maps is impressive to say the least.
So, we rode 14.6 miles, with a moving time of 3 hours 53 minutes, moving average of 3.8mph, total time of 6 hours 25 minutes and 2 hours and 30 minutes stopped...that puts me and DW at 91 miles so far this year.
God gave us a wonderful day to ride, near perfect blue bird weather with a high in the low seventies, good company, good horses, and great scenery. We had the whole place to ourselves and didn't see or hear another soul other than the six of us along the trails.
It don't get much better than that. Well, ok, maybe it could, I called Annita Anne to see if she wanted to join us..but couldn't convince her to play hooky from work.....she's far to dedicated....
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
