Case in point, riding up on the fires before seeing actually flames or coals I had no idea there was burning going on. The night was dead quiet and then I started to hear a lot of cracking and popping in the woods and my thoughts jumped to some hungry animals waiting for me up the trail. As I prepared for animal battle, I was disappointed to learn it was just burning brush piles making all that noise. Got the blood going.
Luckily I had Shadow and found some barley pops to sooth the nerves. Fun ride!
