Re: [RC] Grand Island-Rapid River Conditions - Maggie Mieske

You should have talked to us at Becke's ride.  I love the Grand Island ride!
The ride is out and back and the vet  checks are all out.  What distance are
you wanting to do?  The trail is WONDERFUL and a mix of everything but not
terribly rocky.  The trail is beautiful, lots of wildflowers.  You get to
cross a small river and a wooden bridge (depending on the distance).  Of
course, seeing all this is dependent on the weather.  It could be nice and
cool, or hot and muggy and thunderstorms or snowing.  :)  And chances are
the bugs will make you scream.  Those face masks for people are a good idea
for vet checks!  Anyway,  I am doing the 100 there.  It is easy to leave
buckets out and Nelson can direct you as to some good spots and tell you
about the out checks.  I will say to GET THERE EARLY if you want a good
spot.  We go up Thursday or else you'll be stuck in a less than desirable
You'll be ok crossing the bridge.  The Bridge Authority will escort you
across if you ask.  You can get off before the bridge and find them and ask.
But it's really not that big of a deal.  If it is dangerous, they will close
the bridge but that doesn't happen very often.  Really.  Just look straight
ahead and pretend you are NOT on the bridge.  :)  Hope to see you there!

The only thing worse than crewing for a female Endurance rider is crewing
for a wet, tired female Endurance Rider! A good crew person has patience, a
sense of humor, and knows that sometimes it's best to say nothing at all!
