MANY CEDARS CAMPGROUND & TRAIL RIDE


Sunset on the Buffalo River at Many Cedars

Sept. 9 – 13
Oh, what a beautiful Buffalo River Home (I’m sure Pete will elaborate on that reference later). After about a short three-hour haul into Tennessee, we landed in Hohenwald at the Many Cedars Campground and Horse Trails. Again, we had the campground to ourselves and enjoyed the primo campsite – a pull-through site along the banks of the Buffalo River. It was spectacular! The trails were challenging and a bit rocky, but the horses did great. A portion of the first trail was in a rocky stream. The horses had to walk through the rock and rushing water for about 100 yards or so, then up the mountain from there – very cool. The loose rock on the steep downhills had me holding my breath at times, but Maggie just sat back and expertly stepped her way down safely. Guinness tends to want to rush the downhills a bit but luckily he is very sure-footed. Our second day at Many Cedars was a rain out. We certainly couldn’t complain and the folks there were very glad to see the steady rain having suffered a drought this summer. A perfect day for us to take our sojourn into the local Walmart Supercenter! We also searched and searched for an Internet connection – none. But, back at the campground office, Karen, the operator, had wireless and a washer and dryer – Nirvana! Wednesday, the day after the soaker, was a beautiful sunny day! We hit the trails and made a loop around Napier Lake which was very nice. Pete took a wild cowboy ride on Guinness’ neck during this outing! Maggie and I were ahead and had just crossed a road onto an open, flat trail which was heading back toward the barn (horses have an amazing barn-direction instinct). Well, apparently Guinness’ instinct kicked in big time. He wanted to get there fast and in the process let out a buck which landed Pete ahead of the saddle, hugging and straddling Guinness’ neck – yelling “Stop! Stop!” When I turned around to see what all the yelling was about, I wasn’t sure stopping was the best option! I moved Maggie in front of Guinness to slow him down and Pete was able to recover – sit up a bit and grab reins. My cowboy stayed on! I got off Maggie to collect Pete’s ball cap and sunglasses that landed back on the trail, while Pete pulled Guinness’ nose back to his ass and turned him in a few circles to remind him who is boss. Really, it was a beautiful day and a glorious ride. – The Girls


I’m writing this column standing up . . . just kidding. My perfect record of not being “bucked off” continues, with an asterisk, maybe. The way I see it I just landed a bit north of the saddle – driver error. John Hiatt’s “Buffalo River Home” is a great song and I’m sure he wrote it in Many Cedars. By the way, we have theme music for every stop. Our overall trip theme song is “A Night in the Box” by Phil Lee which speaks to the joys of spending the night in a trailer. It starts out “Well, I got a little place out on Highway 10 – Ya’ gotta duck your head when you walk in – Go 3 steps and lay down flat – Babe, my little box is where it’s at”. We played that song at Suwannee, which was just off I-10, but the theme song for that site was the BoDeans ”She’s a Little Runaway” in honor of you-know-who. Look for the CD in stores just in time for the holidays. The perfectly relaxing campsite was a polar opposite to some of the trails. When Kim says she’s “holding her breath” read that to mean that Pete is turning “a whiter shade of pale”. Know that some of these trails, if you came to hike them, you would be on your butt or your hands and knees grabbing at roots and rock edges. My new technique is to simply fold my hands together and look earnestly toward Heaven. Hohenwald, Tenn., by the way, is the home to an elephant sanctuary, where circus elephants hang out when they’re not in the center ring. I inquired about how to get there and was informed that it’s not open to the public. But why? He asked. Apparently, last year one of the elephants trampled one of its trainers to death. I guess traumatizing the small kids on a field trip from the local elementary school is something the Sanctuary is not interested in at this time. But watch out for the next installment of “When Animals Attack” on your local Fox network. Thank God that America will get the truth from “the fair and balanced” network – these “cover-ups” should not continue in a free society.
Later, Pete

Ok. I am getting much happier with the picture selection. I feel much more connected to your camping experience. How about for next time some pics of one of you kickin' back in one of those chairs with a cold one smilin' some big ass cheezy smile?!? Or do you set up that cutie camp site just for the photo shoot? J/K!! Boy, I am picking on you guys, huh?
