Thanks spikegary. Us refugees from the old NV need to keep in touch.
United we stand, divided we fall.
Our friendship is re-established, as it should be.
Thank you very much for accepting my friend request Spikegary!
Spike, I learned long ago that you just don't know what is under the snow. If someone who knows the area has marked a trail for you, you had best stay on it because just a few feet over one way or another is a disaster waiting for you. I got off a trail in the snow in the Grand Tetons once and I noticed that the snow under my feet was vibrating. Hmmm......what is that? I looked further down the slope and could see a fast moving and fairly large river coming out from under a snow bank. Holy cow. I was standing on top of the snow over the river. I crept off more carefully than I have ever crept before. Down the slope from me about 100 yards, the snow collapsed into the river. I shook for an hour.
Out in the east, we are pretty much strictly marked trail riding. We tell everyone stay on the trail-we can identify hazards on the trail, but aren't willing to mark all the hazards everywhere else!
Trail? Trail? What trail?
Gary, our friend, as you probably know, is currently pressed for time. But I, too, miss him and look forward to his return.
It's been a while. I was away from my usual self due to a bout with Prostate Cancer which I have successfully overcome, and with the help of a couple of pills can pretty much function normally. For a while I had my doubts; but, all is pretty much back to normal. Suffice it to say looking at 77 took its toll...but walking a lot (5-6 miles a day) has gotten my body pretty well back in shape. It's great to welcome you back as my friend, Gary.
PS: I am spending a lot of time on Facebook because of my kids, nieces and nephews, and grandchildren...and naturally they don't blog nor write...just PICS!
I have lived here about 30 years. Close to I95 and evertthing else, too.
Good to see you here and have our friendship renewed, Spikegary.
