Re: [RC] Riding Alone - Barbara McCrary
I always do one of two things:
1) Call my husband at work, which is only 5 miles from our home, and let
him know when I'm going out and what route. We have place names for all of
our trails, so I can describe where I'm going very effectively.
2) Leave him a note on the kitchen table telling him what time I left home,
where I'm going, and which horse I'm riding. This works only if I'm taking
an afternoon ride, otherwise if I were dumped somewhere it would be a long
time until he came home and found the note.
We don't get cell phone or radio contact here in our steep hills and deep
canyons, and I almost never meet anyone on the trails.
