Yes, I wear a headlamp and look like a dork. But dark or not, it doesn't mean I get to "Get in early" or "relax" or "rest", it just makes things harder.
    Zactly!!! There's trash to take out/burn......dogs that need fed and exercised...chickens that need fed and watered...horses that need to be minimally looked at and then fed....their fence needs to be glanced over to make sure there's nothing that happened during the day. Etc Etc Etc.

    HATE it.

    You are not alone.
    There is Dracula, Wolfman, Creature from the black lagoon, Freddy Krugar.....
    You get the drift.
    I must stop asking "How stupid can you be?" rhetorically.
    Some people are starting to see it as a challenge.

    I'm not a huge fan of it this year, since we couldn't comfortably afford to move the beast to an indoor. In the summer I can go ride when DH gets home. Now, nope... I wonder how hard it would be a ride by the truck headlights. Cold... but hmm...
