On a 100 miler last year Frank S. and I were caught in a
truly terrible lightening storm and flood that washed out the trail

As I was riding my 16.1hh arabian gelding, Cindy remarked, "Why are you laying on his neck like that, Frank?"...as I tried to get smaller and smaller. Lightening was striking on all sides and there truly was no cover. (Cindy got "smaller", too.) :^)
AND, you forgot about the rattlesnake that darn near got me when I was off my horse trying to walk in the bentonite!
Ah, what grand memories....riding with Cindy is ALWAYS an adventure.
I recommend it to everyone...and anyone who wants the miles to fade away in great conversation and her soothing Louisiana singing-style!
(sorry, Cindy, couldn't resist...)
