Being stubborn and being saturday I have to ride. It was in the mid 30's but high high winds and sleet rain at time. I saddled up, put on 2 rain coats and headed out. I had a heavy head wind, a small hurricane force wind but I thought that was good. That meant on the return ride I would have it to my back. I headed to the bush and every thing was mud, mud at times 6 inches deep , what snow there is left has turned to ice. I pulled my shoes Tuesday because of the mud so when he wasn't in the mud he was on slippery ice. Bushes blowing, dead leaves blowing, trees bent under the wind and turkeys?? Everywhere there were wild turkeys hiding out in the bush. While my guy is not spooky at all the combination of wind and turkeys kept him alert.. I could hear nothing but the roar of the wind.
I wandered in that for 2 hours and hated it. It is the worst ride I have had all winter. Did I mention the sheet rain coming in paralled to the ground
All and all a ride from Hell.
I will not ride tomorrow if the weather doesn't change.
I will go nuts.
