I doubt if you'll learn much doing the LDs if it
doesn't stretch her conditioning any. Furthermore,
you'll be with her on the trail longer and would have
the opportunity to ride with experienced riders who
have done this before. The knowledge you could pick

My guys accuse me of trying to kill them on their
