Awesome!

That got me thinking... These days, we may want to be careful where we walk around with wires hanging out of our clothes.

Yesterday, in my office, where I have a picture of myself at the track hanging up....

"Wait, is that you?!"
"Who do you think it is?"
"Well at first I figured it was your husband or something....."

I've seen the video. I've seen a lot of horrible, shocking things but seeing a man obviously excited get quite literally ass fucked to death by a horse?
That shit can't be unseen.

There's video?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

Benduro, you've ruined my entire weekend. I'll be thinking about this non-stop. Should I watch the video because, hey, how many opportunities do you ever get to see something like that? Or do you forgo the video because ignorance is bliss and, well, you're right that some things can't be unseen?

The dilemma!!!

I seen there was a ride for next day on ADV,
I thought I won't commit, just show up at the meeting point
if I make it, I don't know these guys.
I roll into the gas station where they are meeting, top off my tank.
As I am hanging nozzle back on pump they approach me asking all kinds of questions where you been riding, how long etc.
The look on there face when I said, no where yet, I was hoping to go riding with you.

I think it was because I was already a walking dust cloud from riding down
my 4 mile dirt road to head in that direction.
