[RC] [Guest] 100 milers - Ridecamp Guest

Dick Dawson mrsd@xxxxxxxx

My wife and I have been in and out of endurance since 1971.
Went over to the Tevis 69-70 and helped crew Bill Thornburgh.
Went home and pulled the old grey mare out and rode her 5 miles
and thought we were both going to die.  She did go on to finish Tevis in
72,73 and 74.
Both of our sons, wife and myself have been able to finish Tevis
a few times.  If you have a  sound horse that can do a fifty and
be in good shape  at the end  just go on and ride the other fifty.  Just
slow down and don't try and top ten every ride you
are entered in and take care of your horse.

Listen to Julia,Becky Hart,Steph Hal Hall and a few dozen others.

If you don't do anything else with the rest of your life at
least try the Tevis one time.  At first it was the most difficult
thing I have  ever done . ... But that trail is so beautiful that
once you have tried it ..YOU JUST CAN'T STOP

See you in July:: Dick Dawson (72) and J.S.Bach.(18).
100s are the way to go:  RIDE, REALLY RIDE... W. Robie
