    Tipperary Titan Helmet

    Yesterday was our first race of the year an open race at Indiana Grand Racing and Casino. It was a training race for Nik to get him prepped for an Indiana Bred Race which is where he mostly belongs (if you use a open race you don’t loose your date for the Indiana Bred races and if your lucky enough to hit the board you get an added bonus I believe) he has yet to hit and get his picture taken in the circle but hopefully in due time. I always like to learn from every experience I have at the track! If you don’t ask questions you will never…

    Breyerfest Tips Tricks and Breyerfest on the Budget Breyerfest on the Budget because, Sometimes it is just not economically possible to go everywhere you want to go and do all you want to do.

We hopped in our buggy (SUV) armed with its backpack (luggage carrier) for the items we purchased and drove down to Lexington Kentucky home of Breyerfest at Kentucky Horse Park.

    Yeah or Neigh Lost Pines Lodge Michigan Review

    Lost Pines Lodge Lost Pines Lodge located in Harietta, Michigan. First of all, Lost Pines Lodge is just three miles from Caberfae Peaks Ski Resort. Since, Caberfae was sold out of rooms they recommend Lost Pines Resort when. We booked the condo at 425 a night. Be prepared to pay more for lodging at Lost Pines Lodge if you are paying by credit card and not cash prices may vary. What does Lost Pines Lodge have to offer? Since, Lost Pines Lodge also rents snow mobiles. Although, I believe this would be a fun thing to add to our list of things to do. Lost Pines Resort also rents chalets…
