I hear ya Gail regarding letting the horse take is own way home, of course they take the short cut through the underbrush, wind falls, brambles, and foreign objects. yep I guess they are all alike in that regard.

The horse I have will take the shortest path back to a trailer or a barn if you let him. I still can't find my way around the trails where I am for the summer but if I go out and then tell him to take us back he will but it will be cross country rather than a nice tidy path. Fun! I agree! Gail.

I hear ya about the scrathches and sometimes it looks like the tree or brambles or logs won the battle. lol That is my favourite part of trailriding, I make my own trails or explore the seldome used trails to see where they take me.

Looks like more people are coming clean about being older farts. Now we are up to 5 members. I had a business meeting this morning and had to explain why it looked like I had bruises all over my arms. I run into trees w hile bushwhacking and also get caught on brambles. Look rather black and blue!

LOL in my mind I AM 36, I just have to remind myself sometimes that I may need one of the neighborhood teens to help with the "grunt" jobs. I can't grunt like I used to but I can sure groan. lol I am just happy that I can still load up, head out and look after things when on the long hauls. I don't know what will happen when I can't do all of that on my own...but I take the same stand that Scarlet O'Hara took in "Gone with the Wind" ..."I can't think about the now, I will think about it tomorrow" lol

Hey! I always say, "It's better to wear out than rust out!!!"

I joined the over 50 group first. TBH I was embarrassed to say I am over 60 when I honestly feel 36! But if Janie Savoie can join, all I have to say is You Go Janie!!

Since it has been pouring rain most of the day (not complaining 'cause we need it) I have been on the computer trying to figure something out for the ride I know the Hullet Marsh, and we can park there and ride out, but the weekends are sometimes busy with groups and clubs things I hate to get in their way. The same with most of the other conservation places. There is the Trans Canada Trail System that goes through all parts of Ontario. That might be an option. I know that I found where it adjoins the GRCA trails and maybe even the Bruce Trail. That might be an option too. You don't have a vacation day stored up do you where we could do this mid week or not on the weekend. I hate getting mixed up with all of the groups, traffic, parking my huge rig in a busy itty bitty postage stamp sized lot when there are kids, dogs and bicycles running around and not looking. I am currently focusing in on the Elora Grand River Area Bruce Trail and Trans Canada. Got any input there.
