Yeah, one coat doesn't get it. Cuddl Duds, Light Tee Shirt, Long Sleeve Shirt or Light Jacket generally gets the job done. IF it is down in the 40's I rode last year in Tee shirt, Long Sleeve Shirt and my coat that is made with that wind breaker material and quilted on the inside - not too bulky (I actually hate wearing coats), socks and gloves and that worked out just fine even on the coldest rides. We rode last January 2011 and it was in the low 30's and we were just fine. Had a great time. I have had to take layers off and tie them to the back of my cantle - that is what all of those latigo's are for!!

Well, I hope Celeste doesn't mind the derailment more.......

Temps have been swinging like mad here in Ohio.

Last Sunday morning it was 12 degrees. Today it was like 38 at the same hour.

Well, getting back on GPS's. I was supposed to go on a camping trip with my peeps and my horses. Weather is getting in the way. It will be POURING rain everywhere Saturday so we are not going camping. I will be going to a GPS course put on by a geocaching group. Hopefully will learn something wonderful!
Celeste and gunslinger like this.

My sister actually teaches some of those GPS trail making courses. Every time we get together things are so busy that we never get to the GPS subject. I always mean to bring it up, but it never happens.

Sounds like fun. Have you ever considered an Orienteering or land navigation course?

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.

Celeste - get on the horn and pick that sister's brain!!!!

Gunslinger, I have checked it out and couldn't find any around here. I called the local university and they had a course coming up but then cancelled it
