      Haha! No doubt. I think Elena got some - said she'd post to the Wild Places website. I'll be on the lookout for our mysterious cowboy. ;-)

    Sorry, all - I need to bow out. My kiddos reminded me that, last time they were around horses and hay, their allergies went crazy and it took a couple of days to recover. It looks like a great time, though. Enjoy! Hope to meet you all sometime soon!

    If anyone has a metal shovel, that might be helpful Sunday, if you have room to bring it. Thanks! See you all soon!

    I'll be bringing supplies for chickpea-no-tuna salad sandwiches - enough for all of us to have half sandwiches (or open face).

    this sounds AWESOME!! I have 4-seater Honda Civic that gets great gas mileage if we need another carpool car.
