  1. Yes 34 Ranch is open. The campground is nice. I don't use the shower house, I have a shower in my camper but I have heard friends say they were clean. There's no restuarant. There is an arena. You can put up a picket line or some sites already have picket lines up for you. You can rent the pens for horses too. Camping fees for water/electric sites is $25 per night. The owner , Tom is running it now with some help from a man who I don't know, but I can assure you that Slim is no longer running it. It seems to be kept mowed now. I believe since Tom is around now, things are getting back to order.

    It's got good wide roads into and through the cmpground, the sites are easy to pull in and out of. Pretty level sites if you don't go across the creek. Some sites don't have any shade (the ones out around the arena).

    The scenery on the trails is very good. They have put up some signs on the trails to help you find your way.

    If you ride from this campground, some of the places you can visit are One Horse Gap, Rocky Top, Pucker Ridge, and Promise Land.


  2. I just got home last night.

    It was hot this week, the worse two days for heat was yesterday and Tues. The other days weren't too bad especially once you were out on the trails.

    ..and as far as "big groups" ... it isn't and organized trail ride where everyone goes out to ride in one big group. 9-day Ride is an anual event. It's put on at the 9-day camp ground. Venders come and there are dances a couple nights a week and just stuff like that going on. It lasts for 9 days. There are lots of peope that come and camp there and just ride the trail out as they wish.


  3. Not sure what land leases for there but here it is around $100 an acre per year. Ten acres would cost $1000. per year to lease.

    Make sure you have everything in the contract. Such as what the land will be used for. If it's going to be used for pasture and cutting hay from it. Make sure that is stated in the contract.

    You said someone else is cutting hay from it already?


  4. No answers for you, on the nursing questions. I just wanted to say I think you will do fine going back to school. You've got the personality traits of a good nurse; you're caring, you stay calm when the other person is panicking & are able to keep them calm as well...you'll make a fantastic nurse!

    Hi Shann!

    How are you? I haven't spoke with you in forever!

    Thanks for the support [Huggy]

    My laptop broke down ans so I can only get online when I'm here at my store. Sorry I didn't reply here sooner.

    Call me sometime!


  5. my mom is, but graduated when she was like 21.

    I actually had a night chemistry class and had like 3 CNA's and 3 people taking the class b/c they where going to be a nurse (more than just an RN but I don't know the specifics).

    They where all older, most where in their 40's and had kids that were grown.

    Not going to lie they were pretty annoying to have class with lol They where such know-it-all 's. ha

    LOL.. well I can guarantee you I won't be a "know-it-all" I hope I can just "learn -it- all" ..LOL


  6. Mia's Mom... Do you work 8 hour shifts, 10, 12 ??? I'm assuming you work 4 nights and have 3 off by your statement???

    Thanks so much for your input. It's good to hear from someone who went back to school at an older age like I'm doing.

    Kim... so you'll be puting some time in the saddle on a young one next year! Always fun!

    I have 8 dachshunds now, but no new puppies. I don't know if I'll continue to raise any puppies. That's one of the things that is making me have 2nd thoughts about school. I have time for my little dogs now. When I get into school more days and then working as a nurse I don't think I'll have time to raise puppies.

    It's costly to raise them too. I make money from the puppies but the costs I have end out being more than I make on the 2 or 3 litters I raise per year.

    When my husband lost his job last year it made me stop and think. If something were to ever happen to him, I wouldn't be able to support myself in the life style we live. It would be nice to have a degree/ career in something good so if I ever "had" to support myself totally, I could.

    So, My plans are to place my dogs and I already have homes for them. I'm keeping one as my house pet. She's already been spayed.


  7. I'm going back to school to become an RN. I'm having some 2nd thoughts about it , one reason ,because of my age. I'm old enough now that my kids are grown and I have a lot of free time.

    A little history....

    I started college 15 years ago to become an x-ray tech. At that time I could hardly decide between the x-ray program or nursing program but chose x-ray.

    While I was in school I was diagnosed with cervical cancer and had to have 3 surgeries because of this. Because of the time off from school, I lagged behind in the class so I dropped the class.

    So now at 45 years old I've started back to school. This time I chose nursing.

    My question to you that are nurses:

    1. Are you happy that you chose this career?

    2. Would yo do it over again?

    3. What do you like best about your career?

    4. What do you lke least about it?

    5. Do you feel you work ALL the time, or do you feel you have enough quality time to spend doing other things?

    6. Are job positions as easy to find as hear they are?

    7. Do you or have you worked PRN ? Would you do it again?

    Thank you for your input.
