If I'm not out on the trail, it's always good to hang out at the finish line with a stethoscope in hand, ready to pulse folks in as they return to camp. Pulsing the 100-mile horses is always incredibly inspiring...someday, Fiddle will be one of them!
22. What’s in your cooler at
Since many meals in ridecamp are potluck
|Sausage, fried potatoes, gravy...just the beginning of a ridecamp morning feast!|
it seems like I can throw just about anything in the cooler, and combine forces with two or three other people and their coolers, and end up with some pretty spectacular food.
Food I won't leave home without:
a 25-pound bag of carrots
It occurs to me that my go-to foods are mostly yellow. What's up with that? I guess other people must bring red and green and stuff.
23. One thing about competitions you wish you could change?
Early morning start times.
Fiddle is not a morning horse, and I am not a morning rider. Between us, we manage to stumble around in mostly-the-right-direction until the sun comes all the way up.
24. Your ringside crew
|Usual Suspects, L-to-R: Gail, Duana, Little Meaghan, Patty, Sirie, Me|

25. Best prizes
I like T-shirts (like the Renegade shirt most of us are wearing in the photo (above). And useful stuff, like buckets and water bottles.

Mostly, I like the feeling of finishing a long ride with a great horse.
|Isn't this a great prize by itself?|
Coming soon: STORIES for the season!
