I'm Dreaming of Summer Vacation!
In the dead of winter (okay, so officially it's the last day of fall), I start thinking about where I want to ride next year. Oh, we’ll hit all our local haunts and hopefully a few new ones within an easy drive. But I keep reminding myself we only have two more summers before McCain flies the coop. Can I twist his arm into doing one more “big trip” with the horses this coming summer? He has mentioned how much he loved riding in the Black Hills and I would love to go back there. More importantly, can the truck take that trip again?
On days like this, I open up the picture files and remember that trip. (The good stuff, not the truck breaking down stuff...) I’d love to be like Samantha on Bewitched. Wiggle my nose and be back there again…. On our good horses, with our sons and our friends. All of us in awe as our horses took us places we would never have gone otherwise. Most noteably, Harney Peak.

These pictures bring back memories. Yeah, we had challenges that trip, but they were all mechanical. The rides themselves were good. Great memories! The skies were blue, the weather was mild and our horses didn't let us down. To hell with Disney World, I'd go back to South Dakota in a heartbeat. Or maybe Colorado.... or Wyoming....
