Let's see.. a lot has happened since I last posted while we were at Dale Hollow..

We left there and went to Bailey's Point.. beautiful Corp park with a lake view.  We only stayed a week, but it was wonderful and dogs had a great time in the water.  Next we headed to a corp park we couldn't get into so we canceled our reservation and headed to Lake Cumberland RV park.  It was so nice we stayed a month!  The people were so nice and the facilities were really nice.  I had a lot of places to run, but OMG the hills!  The hills of Ky are beautiful, but not too much fun to run.  Making 5 miles on hills.. so not too bad.  While here we made a day trip to the Lexington Horse Park.  Had a wonderful time with the dogs at the park.  Watched the "Parade of Champions" and Rowdy had a seat up near the front.  He was very interested in all the horses.  Cigar was my favorite and possibly the prettiest horse I have ever seen.

After LCRVpark we headed to Taylorsville, Ky.  Nice State Park and we always meet the nicest people there.  On the 9th I got to go hunting with Jan Bell and Don Gaskell.  The dogs did pretty good, except Libby getting skunked...peeeuuuuwww.  My poor Libby-lou.  On the 15th was the BWTA/AWTA dog trial.  Buddy and Jan ran the brush hunt and everyone seemed to like it.  Our dogs did really well and I am very proud of my Snap-man for getting high point Rally! Running was much more fun here- it is a little flatter.  Going upwards of 5 miles now.  Our good friends Pat and Al from Illinois got to come to the trial and we had a wonderful cook-out after the trial.  Good food and good friends, Pat and Al, Lynne McPherson, Jan Bell, Sussane Busse, Buddy and me.  From Taylorsville we headed right to the Magnolia trial.  What wonderful weather for a trial.  I judged the agility part of the trial on Saturday and Buddy got to show all the dogs.  He did a fantastic job and the dogs came away with a lot of ribbons, a champion and reserve.  My Snap-man did it again and got reserve champion in Trailing and Locating!  wahoooo Snap!  We got to see our wonderful and dear friends Pat and Al again.  This is one of my favorite trials.  We all have such a good time.   Fantastic place to run (sidewalks everywhere) and got a good run of 7 miles and a couple 5's and 6 milers.  I wanted to run everyday because it was so nice.
From Magnolia to Arkansas.  We are currently at Hot Springs Catherines Landing RV park.  very nice park and back to the hills for running.  Made a couple 6 milers and 4-5 milers.. The hills are brutal.  Buddy and I headed to the Hot Springs National park and had a wonderful hike to the top of the mountain.  So beautiful.. not great to wear flip flops when hiking.  (I didn't know we were going to hike up)  I think the dogs were even a little sore the next day. 


Tomorrow we head into Texas to Atlanta State Park.  So for now signing off.. see ya on facebook and email!  ;)
