[pct-l] Crest Rider and JoAnn
For any of you wondering about the where-abouts and how-abouts of Crest Rider
and JoAnn, Crest Rider wrote to me the following:
In a message dated 06/04/2001 10:34:51 PM Pacific Daylight Time,
<< Joanne and I are both off of the trail. She purchased a new horse in
Warner Springs that had a previous saddle sore that was aggravated by her
saddle. She went back to using Cat who had two weeks off and was looking
good. But there was something wrong with the saddle and cat also was
developing a saddle sore in the same location. She made it as far as Van
Duesen Canyon and then was hauled back to the Heart Bar Group camp. I made
it as far as Middleton's with both pack horses and sent one back to Miramar
with my son as he was losing too much weight. Then just above the "nice
creek side camp" my other pack horse planted his feet and said that's all
folks! I had to leave the packs along side of the trail for 4 days until
son could walk in with the other pack horse and retrieve the stuff that was
left after the bear had scattered everything all over. As my horses are
much more important than my dream I decided to come home to WA and rethink.
I will be doing WA in July and Aug in short bursts. Hopefully will meet up
with some of the great people I met in CA. I talked to Joanne's husband
last night. She has been trying to find a pack mule or horse to just pack
on but is not having much success. He thinks that she will probably have to
return home soon and replan.
Thanks for your help at Lake Morena and the great time at the party.
Hopefully I'll be there again in 2-3 years after I get other stock and get
them trained. I am thinking about mustangs.
