I've ridden the Gap many years ago.  Tight going up for sure!

Instructions were to pull your feet out of the stirrups and keep them like jockey at least.

I remember that area when we rode out that way.  It was a great trip, but I really wanted to be able to say I road coast to coast some day.  I really don't see it happening now.  Seems like everyone that I that has done it have had major breakdowns doing it.  And that gets very costly.  So now we have been staying more local or just a ways west, usually to southern OH and KY.  We like the south riding too.  But when you end up in big repairs pulling a big L/Q trailer to riding areas and have to pay for repairs all the time, it just is not worth it.  We have not given up finishing a trip across to the west coast, but we are not as likely to do it when Steve retires then we had planned before. 

First thing will be getting moved to a retirement home.  We are pretty set on KY.  We love that area and the people there that we have met.  Just waiting for Steve to give up working and retire.
