[RC] What's in your crew bag? - Ridecamp Guest

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

My bag for a lunch stop away from camp WHEN I AM RIDING:  I take fat flake of 
hay, zip-lock bag of Natural Glo Rice Bran and A&M cut fine; 1 or 2 cans of 
Nestle's Sweet Success for me; 3-4 bottles of water to refill my water bottles. 
( new and sealed so they don't come apart and leak); a pan for horse feed when 
mixed with water.  The other item I take is a used shower curtain or liner.  It 
folds quite small, is thicker than just a trash bag, and it gives me a safe 
place to put my saddle and myself when I have to untack at the lunch stop. I 
use a men's suitbag, which zippers full length, which I got in a thrift store 
for this "away from camp" container.  It is pretty heavy duty, and easy to move 
about. I will carry my rump rug on the horse if the weather is dicey.
If I am crewing for someone else, I have a whole other list of stuff I take out 
to the stops or intersections. One guy I crew for says: "If it isn't in the 
back of Karen Nelson's truck- you don't need it on a ride." It's great to have 
a fan club. Karen Nelson
