They give you some mint leaves to hold under your nostrils if you can't handle the smell.

Tanneries were always kept outside of towns because of the smells associated with them. Same for rendering plants, glue factories, etc.

Hey, old animal parts stink.

I never thought about trying to tan my own hide if I could get one from a sheep herder.

No, no, no, no, no. You are supposed to tan the sheep's skin.

Most tanning today is done with chemicals, but I have friends that have done vegetable and brain tanning. I'm told that most animals have enough brains to tan their own hides.

Well, I took the sheepskin to the hills, for it to have a little of fresh air...

Helmets

When you ride trails do you tend to wear a street helmet or a dirt helmet?

I have the hybrid AFX FX-39. It has a visor, but also has a faceshield that will fit over goggles. It's the same as the Fly Trekker, but Fly doesn't have hi-vis yellow.

If we're strictly trail riding, and especially if it'll be dusty my wife and I wear MX helmets and goggles. Goggles are a must if it's dusty. But if we're doing any highway riding we have a couple of the new adventure or crossover helmets with visors. An MX helmet really sucks on the highway.

I just bought the same helmet, but told the wife to wrap it to place under the tree for me. Santa might as well get what he wants...

I'd been going either with a full face for the street, or an MX & goggles for dirt. I really didn't like either of them for the dual sporting. I hate goggles. I'm really looking forward to using the new helment. It seemed to fit well and the price was perfect.
