[RC] Water @ Camp Far West this weekend - Ridecamp Guest

Please Reply to: Karen Nelson knelson@xxxxxxxxxx or ridecamp@xxxxxxxxxxxxx
==========================================

There is a live creek at camp.

By my count, you will have access to live water @ 4 other crossings on the 
first loop, and another spot where you can leave trail for a very short 
distance and get water, also.  That is on the first loop.

On the second loop of the 50, there are 5 crossings of live water, and I may be 
at the Bow Range with water. If so,MY WATER WILL NOT BE FOR ANYTHING EXCEPT 
HORSE DRINKING.  NO SPONGING-NO SCOOPING-NO FILLING YOUR 'HORSE' WATER BOTTLES 
TO POUR ON HIM WHEN YOU ARE OUT OF MY SIGHT. I do this on my own initiative, so 
I get to set the rules.  I WILL have people water to top off your personal 
drinking water.  If I get info that ANYONE takes bottled people water for their 
bottles and then pours it onto their horse, this will be the LAST time I do 
this.  I pay for the supplies and the gas, and I have spies in the rider pack.  
Don't be putting bottled water onto your horse if I am paying for it.

The third loop= I am not sure what Tom is using for the 3rd loop.  If it is 
what I think it is, you will be crossing live water at least 2 times.

That adds up to 12 live crossings in 50 miles.  For anyone to say there isn't 
much water at this ride, I don't get their calculations.  If riders are going 
too fast to take the time to let their horses drink at live water, then you 
can't fault Ride Management.
