Oh and we rode the whole five days in Easyboot glue-ons. We each lost a front right on day four but Dave Rabe came to the rescue and fixed that for us.(Dave is always helping people at rides and we al love him!) Apparently a little dirt got in during application so we carried some spare easy boot glove in case the same thing had happened to the others. We didn't need them however as all boots 'stuck like glue' for the rest of the ride.
Pic 1 Ricky Canyon only about 4-5 miles from our place. We also have Red and Burbank Canyons right out the back of the house. I rode Kipling about 200 miles in the three weeks we were in Smith Valley. It was wonderful..of course!
Pic 2 Our property is right at the end of this road. Great cosy spot nestled at the base of the Pinenut Ranges. Our back yard is hundreds of miles of BLM!
Pic 3 This is Cathy one of my new riding buddies on her lovely Arabian Yankee. We had a great ride in yet another terrific riding area close to our place.
Pic 4 Kip on fence patrol. He ran constantly for the first couple of days. He settled down only to start again when I took Mernie's mare out for a ride. He's ready for a 100 miler now!
Pic 5 Another new riding buddy and closest neighbor Tracey Wolfe on her Super mule Lupine.
Pic 6 Jim the dry wall king. He did a great job of finishing the 'cubby house' apartment above the garage. Mernie and Jim worked while i shirked!
Pic 7 The cubby house almost finished. See air conditioner for cooling and heating. It's gong to be our little home while we contemplate what to do with 'The Dome'!!
