(Did I mention the trails are fabulous? They are what makes it worth it.)
Dee Dee now has a slide-on camper on her pickup truck,
and Karen has a rig -- 2 or 3 horse (I forget which) trailer with living quarters.
John and I have this.......
So we had Bright Idea #1: Clean the back of the horse trailer, put our blow up bed in there, and keep our supplies, clothes, etc., in the tent. Seemed like a good idea at the time. So that is what we did.
We hate having the horses tied up all the time. We had been at campsites where people made a little corral of sorts out of some stakes and electric fencing material. We figured, "Why can't we do this?"
That lead us to Bright Idea #2: So that is what we did. Seemed like a good idea at the time.
At about 2:00 or 3:00 a.m., we were half asleep because we were freezing so much we could not get into a good, deep sleep, At about that time a woman from the neighboring campsite came to our campsite and woke us up. She had our horses in tow.
So there we were cold to the bone, and our horses had escaped from their little corral.
Well, they seemed like good ideas at the time!!!
