Big River Competition

Well, another MDDA season is in the books. We had a lot of new drivers this year and hope to see them all out on the trail next year. The more the merrier! There was a wide variety of breeds and rigs, from Miniatures to Drafts, and jog carts to marathon carts.

Ray and I finished the season the Big River Competition in Keithsburg IL.  This trail is challenging, but beautiful.   There is some deep sand in a few stretches, and many corners where you you have to plan carefully to negotiate between the trees.  The campground at Keithsburg has plenty of space, lots of electric hook ups and shady camp sites.  The highlight on Saturday was the costume contest where horses and riders/drivers were decked out in all sorts of fun.
