Geo and Sage are in furry-mode!
Happy New Year!!!! Here we are in 2013 and the final countdown to the ride can begin!
Well, we start the new year with a roster change because Sandy refuses to foal! The surprise pregnancy and the late foaling date mean that at this point there is just not enough time to finish Sandy's training and have her ready to accompany us on the ride come May. So we're back to square one for the team - just me, Sage, and Bella. I'll ride and light pack off of Sage. It would have been nice to have a second horse, but unfortunately time is just not on our side with Sandy. Worry not, we'll still have updates on Ms. Sandy and her baby... when he/she decides to enter the world!
As for the rest of us, we're in final prep mode. Sage and I are adhering to a strict riding schedule, and we're stocking up on the final supplies and gear. One of the next things big things for us to buy is the SPOT tracker. Don't forget that when the ride kicks off, we'll have a map on the homepage that will be linked to the SPOT which will track our location in real-time so you'll be able to see where we are at all times. This is an important safety tool for us, but it's also a fun way for you to follow us and see our progress.
The snow has fallen in Reno, but we're not letting that slow us down. Stick with us as we ramp up for the big date!
