Hibernation Day


I won't lie to any of you. This is exactly what I have been doing all day... Legit just sleeping after eating an entire jar of queso. Not exactly the gains I should working for but I have time to make up for it now that Spring seems a little further away after this storm... I hope.

Took K.I.T.T. (the truck) to the "doctor" this AM for a quick oil change and fluid check. Luckily I mentioned a headlight was out so they fixed that too. Love my mechanic. At pick up they let me know that I had a friend hiding somewhere under the truck. Little mouse was prepping for the storm! They also let me know that both my front tires should have been replaced... two days ago. We'll be back Tuesday for a recheck and a tire change, $400 later. It'll be fine!



(Some shots from the video the other day.)


Brantley is enjoying his day off today I think. Spent the night in his Back On Track pajamas after his chiropractor/acupuncture/massage appointment yesterday and was super snuggly this morning. Bodywork is an amazing thing, can't wait to get back in the saddle tomorrow for some long and low work. Tuesday night I hopped on for a bit and he just wanted to cruise around the arena on the buckle. Can't say no to that after all the hard work and late nights we've been putting in.


I also wanted to try out our new toy! This is the iRocknRide Bluetooth Speaker that everyone should check out. I found a good deal on eBay and had one of those Visa Gift Cards so I had to grab it. A little more money than I'd normally spend on something like this but everything I've read and what Grasa has told me, definitely worth a try. I am always a little worried strapping something new on the saddle for Brantley but it was totally fine. 

He's used to me riding with my cell phone playing music in my pocket anyway so I didn't think it'd be a huge deal. It hooks right up to your phone and you can actually press the call button and say, "Play Brantley Gilbert" or "Call 911" and it'll do it! Super cool right? Plus, if you're at a show, you can chat with your trainer from across the arena... or cross-country course. We hope.


Chevy enjoyed the gorgeous weather and his hikes yesterday. He works so hard for me and although I spend 75% of every month sleeping at someone else's house away from him, he still loves me just as much. I know he misses me, you can tell, and I miss him just as much.


A quick down to blogger-business moment before my computer dies. I know some of you have mentioned you're planning on attending Rolex this year and I really really want to go. Looking for some advice and some price points just so I have a round about idea other than flights. What's everyone's plans? I need a vacation and this would be the best idea right?

Sounds like both you and Brantley got to enjoy some serious TLC and relaxation, nice! Re: Rolex price points idk about lodging bc I stayed at a friends house, but that's really the only biggie I think, unless you want to go hog wild on shopping haha. The Rolex website has all the ticket prices, and food and drink really wasn't bad (esp if you grocery shop and byo on xc day.

Thanks for the tips! It's the flight that I think will be the most expensive. I'm still on the fence and have someone on standby to cover the job I booked.

I'm very slow in catching with blogs, but I highly recommend Rolex. Fly into one of the nearby airports. The Lexington airport is way more expensive as only little jets come in there. We fly in to Louisville, and it's only a 1 hour drive and about half the cost.

So far I love it. A little on the expensive side like a mentioned but definitely worth it.

No worries! I keep trying to get myself on a schedule to read and write. It's definitely therapeutic haha. Thank you so much for the tips. That's my biggest question, where the hell do I fly to. But I will look into it for sure!

Brantley & I would love to hear from you!
