I bought my Garmin on line from Target. It was $159 when I bought it 2 years ago. I would like to get a fancier one and I might do that one day. This one records all I need but as I learn more about it I will want one that can do more.
I have a Garmin Rino 530HCx. It has a color screen that I really like. I also like it because it has a 2 way radio. It works with other 2 ways and other Rinos. One other great feature it has is you can see where other rino users are on the map. You can see how far away they are and how long it will take to get to them at your current speed. I'm not sure if it is still available, but I do know there other rinos available. I got mine on Amazon. If you are patient, you can get some pretty good deals.
I went for an awesome trail ride Friday with some friends. It was to a place called snake gulch, just south of Fredonia, AZ. Here are a few pics.
This was the first panel of writing/drawings.
There were a few of these blooming
It would be interesting to know what if anything these drawings meant.
I thought this was a cool tree.
This was a cool water trough were we turned around.
I rode Champ and we rode about 16 miles. Total of 63.9 miles for the year.
Sorry for the pic overload, it was a great ride.
SO glad to see you are home and doing well, QOS!!!!
DH mowed more trail up in our woods yesterday, and then he ACTUALLY got on and rode! I wanted to go to the cave earlier, but he had work to finish, so I rode the TWH in the arena (I am working on her gait, for DH). We went down the road about a mile, then it was getting dark, so we came back. Did about 3 miles total. That's a lot for DH.
I was really proud of him. He rode and showed a LOT, 40 years ago. Now with a bad back, etc, he just wants to be a passenger on a big, slow, safe horse. Debbie Bell is a great horse for him; 16,3 hh, willing to just carry him, draft personality, and being a Clydesdale, a conversation starter. He felt like she gave him a hard time last time he rode her, and was apprehensive about it happening again(we were on a wide trail, and she wanted to go back to the trailer) Anyway, yesterday, he saddled her(normally, I do) and climbed on, and we took off!!! Usually, when he rides, I lunge or ride first, to take any edge off( what a GOOD wife, LOL!!)
Just keep reminding yourself how nice it will be that first time back in the saddle when all the muscles that have been relaxed for a couple months start getting used again. All the rocking in the saddle rubbing on the buttocks bone that is not as protective from a stiff rump like it was a couple months ago. All the time soaking those sore muscles down with Listerine to help loosen them up when you get back...
Yep, I hope the healing comes quickly so you can get back to your normal daily life.
