    Re: [RC] subject matter on Ride Camp - Bonnie Davis

    You are lucky, Pat.  Have hauled my horses up there and its beautiful country!!  Obviously, weed free feed hasn't worked its way into your National Forest Service offices yet. 
    Since you're in Oregon, do you know anything about the feed restrictions over around Baker and the BLM lands?  I understand ONLY feed bought in Baker and three or four counties can be used on those BLM lands.  If not, thanks anyway and I'll just have to go up to the May Wilderness Clinic in Klamath Falls (going to all these clinics and events and riding all these trails is rough work, but somebody has to do it -- he, he, he).

    Here in Southern Oregon, we ride a lot of miles on the Pacific Crest Trail and each time I do, I give thanks that we have access to such wonderful riding country. No restrictions at all that I can think of. Camping sites are clean and well maintained. Trails are clear with good footing. Much of the early spring and late fall, we have to contend with blow down and it is sometimes a challenge working our wayt around downed trees. The major thing that I worry about is when off trail finding old down and half burried barbed wire. On sections where I know this to be a possability, I often get off and lead.
    Our local park service works with the Forest Service to build and maintain miles of trails above the city for some great close to home riding. Are we lucky or what?

    I have a question for all on Ride Camp, how many of you have been on rides where camping and/or the ride was done on public lands -- National Forest, State Park, etc.?  When on those public lands, were there any 'restrictions' (such as weed free feed required, no horses in meadows, etc.)?  And if there were 'restrictions', what were they?  Thanks!

    While I am a proponent of using the delete key if not interested in  a topic rather than complaining, I have become acutely aware of the low incidence of actual endurance related, or horse care and training related items on Ride Camp.
    I did a quick survey of the deleted (and unread) items and out of the last 100, 36 had to do with "Actors who can ride".
    Except for the welcome contributions of our wonderful Susan G, I was able to find only six items directly related to Horse care or endurance.
    I find myself deleting whole blocks of items and I wonder if this is only because so many are snowbound and in desperate need of distraction....any distraction. Am I mistaken in remembering that only a couple of years ago, Ride Camp was full of interesting items and discussions? Perhaps it has come full circle and it is I who am in need of a different kind of distraction. Help me here, folks.....is it me? I hardly look forward to opening my e-mail in anticipation of finding fun and interesting discussion.
    I know, I know, my delete key functions just fine. Just thought I would share.....
