Big Horn: Wow.



Sunday July 17 2011

Wow.

i don't even know where to begin.

another epic legendary ride.

beautiful trails, great weather, great food at vet checks, interesting
times GETTING to the vet checks for crews.

a better job of marked trails this year, but still issues.

all 50s were overtime. due to trail issues it was upgraded to a 60 so
they met criteria and finished

about 27 started the 100, i think 4 lameness pulls, and 5 or 6
overtime. approximately 5 riders and or crew spent the night on the
mtn. 2 horses spent nite on mtn and finally returned at noon today.

bev gray and jolly sicle won in 17+ hrrs and got BC. kerry greer was
2nd with bev.

for many horses and riders this was their 1st 100. wow.

kevin, kevin and rusty finished at 2:30 am. steph and i passed out as
soon as we got back to camp and let the dogs out and fed them and set
the horses up with food and water at 1:30am so we missed their finish.

we saw a moose! leaving the last vet check.

more to come, stay tuned!
