And here we are at September again. My parents were right. The
older you get the faster time goes.
The next event is the Picnic Basket Drive with Trivia. Hopefully
you have started thinking about your basket. If you need any
help or ideas please feel free to call me. Last years event
surprised everyone so I am hopeful for and even bigger showing.
I sure am ready for some cooler weather. There are still a
couple of spaces for the "Great Downhill Bike Ride. September
See you at the Picnic event. Bring your appetites.
Happy Birthday Whips and Wheels!
Better late than never!
first get together was November 12th 2005 at Paradox.
January 7th, 2006 we held our first event at TLC
Farm. During lunch we elected our first officers and decided on
our club’s name. So, as of January 2016 our club has been
enjoying driving for 10 years!
August 21, 2016
Jeff & I ventured up to blowing Rock to join the mule club for
their weekend ride/drive.
Note: we didn’t see
any mules! As per our
luck lately, driving long distances UP MOUNTAINS, our truck made
a nasty sound like a huge backfire. We had to SLOWLY climb the
mountain since we had lost the turbo on the truck! (some gasket
& hose to cool the turbo blew.) A few weeks ago, we had to put
lots of $ to repair a high pressure injection pump when we tried
to go to the VA horse center prior to this trip. Oh the joys of
owning an older truck! We finally got to the Blowing Rock
Equestrian center and as we pulled in the sky let loose! Luckily
we brought rain gear with us. After checking in and waiting a
few minutes the rain fizzled out to a drizzle. We unloaded
Fancy, for Faith to ride, & Precious for me to drive with Jeff
as navigator. We thoroughly enjoyed our day up there, the rain
had cooled everything off. We stopped for lunch at Bass Lake
then continued on past the mansion and back to the barn. The
rain held off the whole time we were out on the trails, there
was a little bit of misting though. Precious & Fancy got to
encounter lots of runners, dogs and moving umbrellas. When we
got back to the parking lot the sun came out in full glory and
boy did it get HOT FAST! Glad we were done and getting ready to
load up to come home.
forget to be working on your picnic baskets for our Sept
17th Trivia drive and Picnic basket auction. If you
need ideas for your picnic basket feel free to call Faith
