Re: [RC] Shore to Shore ride; need info and help please- Farzad & 2 horses - K Hanes

We did the ride last year, LDs all 5 days. The terrain is really mixed from day to day. There is not much for water on the trail unless we get some rain. There is also no place to really crew except the vet checks. From what I understand there are people moving rigs each day (for a fee) to the next camp. I don't know about taking 2 horses unless you have someone to unload and set up your fence when the drivers get your trailer to the next campground. My friend Cathy did 50s all the way across last year barefoot on her mustang. She tried to just watch the footing and take it easy.

The ride manager is Wayne Gastfield, give him a call at 231-250-4242. He does not have internet but his assistant does, Bruce Birr - bbirr@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Hope to see you there!

<x-tad-bigger>Hi everyone, can anyone tell me about terrain and water ?on the trails? Is it possible to take two horses and do the ride without a crew? I can pretty much take all I need for me and my horse on my saddle, but I’d need help with water and moving the rig and the remaining horse. Anybody going, ?that has extra ?help and can lend a hand? I’m fairly low maintenance, and I’ve always wanted to do this ride, but never could get out there. Has anyone done all or part of the ride barefoot? If I get to go, I’d like to do barefoot as much as possible, but I’m prepared to use Glue-ons or Sole Guard , if I should need to do so. Any input on that?</x-tad-bigger>
