I really hate to jinx myself but so far, the riding season has gone as planned. Despite the EHV-1 scare, it really only detoured my plans. Instead of a planned competitive trail ride, I ended up riding the Peckerneck, a trail less traveled.
We have had our share of rain days but only once has it been enough that I have had to pack up and come home. It rained everyday while we were at Halsey, but being that we were in the sand hills, it didn’t hamper our riding, nor did we get wet.

The flooding continues here in the eastern part of our state. The worst of it is along the Missouri River a good sixty miles from us. Travel between Nebraska and Iowa is limited and the I-29 is closed in many places. It may create problems with a trip I have planned in September, but I’ve worked out a Plan B through Plan D to deal with it.
I had a specific riding goal in mind for the year and I am within 5 hours of that goal. If everything continues as planned, I should easily close that gap. Heading into July, life is good.
