    Default Wow, runs late this year

    I know that Bridlespur opted out. I tried to volunteer to help to make it happen but they were afraid it would be really late in the year. Guess it would be.

    Wonder how far it is to Coal Valley for me.

    It is close to Pittsburgh, KS (south east area) which is 2 1/2 hours south of KC. Think "Joplin, MO" area then west. I haven't hunted down there though folks from my hunt regularly go there and say it is a good day.

    I wish I could go to all the hunts on the Challenge! What fun! My MFH and huntsman, Susan Gentry, is a judge! Too bad work will prevent me from going too! Might try to go to at least one...maybe Coal Valley.

    Mr. Blondie is pleased to announce that he is taking The Short Bus to Flagstaff for the PVB/KH day of hunting.

    At this point, we only have 2 Short Bus'ers, but who knows what might happen?

    As opposed to the only other time I've hunted in Flagstaff, when rivenoak and I stopped for some photo ops, lost the hunt, and spent 47 days (seemed like it at the time) wandering lost in the forest?

    "The Short Bus" consists of those of us who are not (and may never be) ready to ride on the real bus with the big kids who go to "normal" school. We trundle along behind at a safe pace and do our best to keep the field more or less in sight--or at least remember where we left the trailers so we can get back when we completely lose track of the field.

    I got info on Coal Valley from Wes. Now I need to decide whether to go. Looks like a five hour haul.

    Leslie,
    You've probably met at least a couple of Coal Valley members as they're active eventers. The roads down to McCune are good (pretty much I-44 all the way). If you do go, post some of your excellent photos.

    Leslie: go to Coal. If not for the Western Challenge, then do it some time next season. The country is open enough to get to see some great hound work and get in some serious runs. Lots of game. The old coal mine area means there are lots of little ponds that hold water for game. And there is a LOT of country. I didn't make it down this season, but have hunted there several times over the years and always had a great time. They know how to host a party, too.
    Hindsight bad, foresight good.
