Stupid Weather! I wanna RIDE!

Man, the title about says it all! It's been cold and snowy and just plain icky out lately. We were down in So. Idaho for the week after Christmas and got about a foot or two of snow here at home--all falling sideways so it's piled pretty deep in places. And it's cold. Not bitter cold like the MidWest, but cold enough to be cold.

If I had some trails around here I'd probably go out in the weather and have a ball on Mr. Big. Bet he'd like it, too! But without trailering it's all cross country and I'm just not up for that in this weather. And the trailer is buried enough that just getting it out would be a challenge! Sigh.

Maybe next week we'll get a nice day and I can haul him down to Lewiston for some riding in the State Park. No snow down there. Kind of want the roads to clear before I haul the trailer--but it wouldn't be the first time I've hauled on snow and ice.

Spring: just around the corner!

You need to find someone with a snowmobile. Those things carve some very nice riding trails.

Interesting. Hadn't thought about riding a sled trail. They make nice XC ski trails, too!

That is the bad thing about winter - it shortens up our rides! Right now our weather is nice - cold but not freezing. In February it will start raining and game over - I don't like to ride in the rain - hubby refuses to ride in the rain so our riding will likely curtailed. I feel for you!!

I feel your pain, I haven't ridden in over two weeks, it's probably going to get to a high in the 20s here today and it's been lower for the last few weeks. Plus we have some nice snow and ice happening. I just want it to be spring already.

I hear you there! I am not confident enough to ride Brandon for the first time in snow. :P

Plus
I still didn't have him fitted for a saddle yet. ;)

Actually, it's not so bad to ride in the snow, if you can stand the cold. You have a softer landing if you fall off! LOL

Good point!

I honestly don't think I am going to have trouble with him, I am pretty sure he's going to teach me exactly what he likes, etc. :)

I am going to have him fitted for a saddle in Feb. :)

It was -5* yesterday morning when we headed out. Took this photo of the temp display on the truck mirror as we were tacking up. It had warmed up a whole 6*.



The sky was clear, Bright sun came out and no wind. So I didn't care about the temps, Just needed a cure for cabin fever.

Went and watched the elk move around. Snow was 12-18" on the benches where the elk were hanging out.
