Pre-ride instructions

kevin-and-crowd.jpgChief Joseph Trail Ride participants received a full briefing (is that a contradiction?) from Kevin Pullen, ApHC trail and distance program coordinator, Sunday evening. After a hearty meal, there was helpful information and advice for the care and comfort of humans and horses. It was during this session that Kevin reminded riders that Monday’s plans included covering 23 miles. I’ll be interested to hear the stories when I catch up with the ride on Thursday for awards night. I’m guessing that the saga will be larger than life by that time.

    I see lots of campers, and Living Quarter trailers in the background isn’t this a progressive ride ” primitive-type” ? or has it changed now… ? any news on the shower trailers?

    It is a progressive ride, but there are a number of vehicles that caravan to the next campsite each day. As you can imagine, there are various viewpoints about how willing folks are to rough it. I’ll withhold my opinion until later. Several people have solar showers. Several people enjoy a dip in the water tank or creeks. Some should.
