I think you'll really like that area. They have some very nice public trails where you can trailer in. They have some stalls so you can groom before and/or after, there is an indoor and they even have some cross country jumps. I don't have a horse, so the couple of times I went was on a borrowed horse. You do want to be careful because once we encountered a guy with a dog that had a bell on it's collar. It spooked the Percheron that the most inexperienced rider was on, she chose to bail and she broke her tailbone.
We're looking forward to the trail riding and getting some horses! We'll be sure to be careful!

Congratulations! You'll be very happy with your choice.

Let us know how it goes once you're here! Otherwise it's like skipping the last chapter of a good book.

If you see a bicycling club ride go by your house on Tues or Wed eve., wave and yell "Go Cubssoxfan" and I'll stop and say hello.

Certainly will! We set the closing date to a week from Saturday, so we'll begin renovations soon!

So an update for everyone-

Our inspector went out today to check out the house and it wasn't good. The house is in pretty bad condition structurally. It looked fine when we checked it out, but I guess that's why an inspector is needed.

Back to square one I guess. We've already got flight plans to head up Friday, so we'll find a new Realtor and look some more next weekend.
