My mom only had one so I guess she got it perfect the first time.

My fate is sealed.  I challenged both Jerry and Carlso to do this ride
like real men.  Any whimp can do it with a crew!  My plan is to be down
about 15 pounds be then - I've aready lost 5 and am now at most a very
light HW.  I don't eat much on rides anyway and what I do eat - candy
bars and nuts - is light to carry.  I found a nifty human electrolyte
that comes in concentrated powder so that's not a problem.  I may try
riding with a camelback so I can open up more space to carry stuff.  I
have avoided those things since I am not sure adding 4 or 5 pounds ot my
upper back and raising my center of gravity while ridding the "king of
spook" is a great idea.  Any comments on these things pro and/or con
from people that have used them.

Anyway planning is underway.  I'll probably head up for the Ft Valley
three day this fall so the horse can meet the trails.  Gee, you may be
right about the sun!
