BEAT THE HEAT Campout/IXL Riding School 2015: May 15-17: Ghost Rancho

As quite a few know, I have been known to throw a shindig or two at my little farm I call the Ghost Rancho. It has some single track riding and is close to many great dualsport roads. We have a big fire ring and been known to have some nice small fires and fellowship. This is laid back, kick back, no frills event. We do some campfire cooking, some riding, and some great fellowship! I do not charge for this. A donation can is out for the cost of food. BYOB unless we get the numbers to warrant a keg...we killed the one at PTAR. And Ladies I am working on my barn's restroom for those who are not adept for primitive camping. I will open the gates on 5-14 for those that want even more time out.

Brad will be teaching the MSF offroad Riding Course on Saturday the 16th. Brad charges $150 per person for the course. I have yet to see someone that has not benefited from the school. Many say they learned more from Brad then much more expensive schools.

Please send PM for reservation for Brad's Class.

I managed to get my trip to and from Midland to see the nephew graduate high school arranged so I can get to the Ranch early Saturday morning.

Actual camping... guess I should make sure the tent is ready.

In. Really. I swear.

I'm in for camping. I have a trials event in Salado that weekend, so I'll make The Ranch my base camp.

Dog sitter confirmed so I am a definite. Really. Arrival - sometime Friday afternoon.

I'll bring the 150R as well to goof around the ranch when I'm not at the event.

I think Dody can ride just fine. I'm just not sure he can keep a bike in running order for very long.....

Yep! I love it. Totally hooked.

Goal was to use it as a cross training tool to improve my dirt skills so I can keep up with the young whipper-snappers. I started riding so late in life, I feel this enormous pressure to get better, fast, as I know this body is only going to hold up to so much abuse. I love trail riding; it is without comparison. The challenges, the sweat, the mud. I love all of it. And I realize that the more skill you have, the less effort you have to exert. At my age, starting as late as I did, I have a limited number of years to acquire enough skill that trail riding can be without much physical effort.

Yeah. I'm a girl. I over think shit.

It quickly became an addiction of its own. And my dirt skills have already improved. The day the conversation in my head was "oh, too much weight on the bars..........wait.....where did THAT come from?"

Hell yeah. It's working.
