Ever Changing “Snack Pack ”
While driving/riding at Paradox Sept 4th,
Faith decided we needed a name for our impromptu group get
togethers, something like the Dean Martin’s “Rat Pack”. Jeff
says we are always eating why not the “Snack Pack” it sort of
stuck with us.
Nancy, Antonio, Faith, Jeff & I had a
highflying time at Paradox that morning.
When Nancy decided she wanted to GO…. Faith turned Casper
over to Antonio to ride, while Faith turned navigator for Nancy.
We FLEW around the trails at Paradox, what a blast! I haven’t
done that in ages! I think Faith left finger marks on Nancy’s
The following weekend Thursday & Friday a
different “Snack Pack “ (Faith, her sister Waverly & daughter
Solitaire, Marilyn, Jeff & I) met in Damascus VA for an
envigorating ride down the mountain on bikes! We met at the
“Outdoor Inn” on Thursday, where we stayed overnight then the
next morning rented bikes and coasted down the mountain. Did you
know you can coast REALLY FAST! I haven’t been on a bike in
almost 30 years. It was a real hoot, definitely a thing to do
again. Thank you for inviting us Faith.
On Saturday Sept 10th the “Snack
Pack” consisting of Nancy, Antonio, Faith, Waverly, Solitaire
and I met again at Paradox. All but Nancy were riding while
Nancy drove Cobalt. Again I had an exhilarating ride following
alongside and behind Nancy as we flew across the trails while
the others meandered along at a much slower pace. I think Fancy
really enjoyed my letting her go wide open after being a pasture
ornament for so long. She did test me a few times at the canter
with some attempted bucks, you would never guess she is a 22year
Trivia Drive/Picnic basket Auction
Polly had some very tricky questions for
her trivia drive, Which Nancy won. We raised $300.00 with 11
