This past Friday started for us at 5:00 in the morning! Poor Sage was surprised when I started saddling him up before he'd even had his breakfast! We met Ted and Trevor Oxborrow on Toll Road just after sunrise, and spent some time taking promotional photos! You can see a sampling of them in the slideshow on the homepage or on our Facebook page. Here's one that didn't make the homepage:
Can you spot the out of place dog? Bella seems to have wandered off in this shot, replaced by Sebastian (who wishes he could go on the ride, but is far too old).
In other news, we're looking forward to the delivery of a brand new food dehydrator - generously donated by Michele Rupp in Erie, Pennsylvania. I've got an entire menu planned out for the trail (breakfast, lunch, and dinner... plus trail snacks!) and much of it involved dehydrating to save space/weight. I'm really anxious to start drying food items and storing them away for the fall!
There's still some important supplies that we need, so if you know of anyone that can help please pass it on! In the meantime, Sage and I will keep riding and getting into shape!
