Riding up to the office was a REAL cowboy. He was on a FINE Sorrel decked out with large saddlebags and obviously dead tired. Man rode up to the door which is on a patio, dismounted and dropped his reins. Grabbed a beer out and took a big swig! Set it down on a table and rolled a cigarette. Lit it and walked in the door.
Now this guy was a cowboy, around 40, bowlegged, decked out in chaps and a oil slicker, it was 85 degrees yesterday. Boys asked how he was doing and where he came from. Said he wasn't really sure but his last stop had been 11 miles down the valley from us at an outfitters. Said he was heading to a town that's about 45 miles from us and needed to know how where he was and further directions. Boys told him how to get there. Man said thanks, said he was lookin for a woman! Lol!
Finished his beer, mind you his horse had been standing right outside the door the whole time ground tied, went back outside mounted and headed out!
All three of the guys were cracking up! Musta been some kind of woman! I've ridden on parts of our highway, scary as all get out! If there IS a shoulder it's crumbling at the white line, not hardly even a ditch if you need it, mostly sheer dropoffs! I know a bunch of old wagon trails to get off on to skip a majority of the switchbacks and gnarly areas. Apparently this guy rode ON the highway, climbing at least 1,500 ft up from the valley from God knows where, heading 45 more miles to go see a woman!!! Lol! Love it! Not something that happens out here, we live in the middle of nowhere!
