I hope it works out. You are only a couple of hours or so north of me.

By the way, what is a 317 special?

UPDATE: To allow an extra week for possibility of rain, the trail ride will be postponed until Sept 15, 2012! If we don't get some rain by Sept. 5th, it will be cancelled for this year.

Sorry for the run-a-round, but it's just too dry here to be safe. I really want to keep this event going in the future, so will try again next year.

I will post here for sure by September 5th! ~~ Lowell

I've been to the farm today, 2" of rain over the weekend, things are already starting to green up! I'll see what it looks like by the end of this week or first of next week & say for sure by the 5th. ~~ Lowell

Went to the farm today & trimmed up around the pond & picnic grounds. Will go out next week & do a little road work, so everything will be ready for next Saturday.

Smoothed the dirt road up yesterday, will go back out tomorrow & sweep the outhouse, put the signs up & a few other last-minute details. Then, I'll be ready for the "ride"! Different route than last year. ~~ Lowell

Sounds good!

The more, the merrier!

We had 24 people with 18 tractors (wide variety of brands & "cosmetics") & our Mule & one Gator last year, hope to keep this as an annual event! ~~ Lowell

1/4" of rain at the farm yesterday, just enough to settle the dust.

Tomorrow looks great, weather-wise! "Mostly clear, high of 78*. ~~ Lowell
