Look At This Coolness!

I know you're saying to yourself, "Self, I really like the High Country Rendezvous window decal.  How on earth can we get us one?"

I'd tell you you could contact Megan at BuildASign, who is phenomenal to work with and design a cool window cling, window decal, or bumper sticker of your own.  Megan contacted me about doing a review of their products and I have to say, I'm impressed.  She's easy to work with and has some good ideas.  In fact, the window decals were her idea.  I had wanted to do window clings, but she was afraid the picture wouldn't show through tinted windows.  So, instead of just sending me the clings, she also sent me window decals.  I'm extremely pleased with how they turned out.  Mom and Bill have one of the window clings up in the window of their office, and I've got one of the decals up on Ripley.

And you'd say, "Self, Megan sounds awfully wonderful, and so does BuildASign.  GunDiva says she is and she really likes the products.  But I really want one of those HCR window decals.  How do we get one of those for our ownself?"

And I'd have to tell you, the only way to get one of these coveted HCR window decals is to register for this year's High Country Rendezvous at Allenspark Lodge B&B.

We've extended HCR this year by an extra day, as we didn't have nearly enough time together last year.  We went on an amazing ride, attended a mini-clinic put on by a local equine chiropractor, and had an adventure with a flat tire.

This year, we're adding a "play day" with the horses, where we can play some fun horsemanship games that most of us haven't done since we were kids.  The extra day also allows us to plan a trip into Estes Park to see the elk and do more riding.

The cost of HCR includes a room at the beautiful Allenspark Lodge B&B, any clinics we arrange, and meals at the Lodge.  Horses will be provided by Compass at the Allenspark Livery, and will be an additional charge (but she's cutting us a good deal).

Due to the fact that the Lodge is at 8,700 feet in elevation, unless you own horses who live and work at that elevation, we cannot accomodate personal horses.  It takes too long for them to acclimate to the altitude.

I kid you not... I looked at the teensy streak of blue nail polish on my toes this morning, and counted the months to HCR! (Which sadly, tells you I haven't had a pedicure in a LOOONG time!)

I am so pumped about this year - meeting you guys was so much fun and I know we'll have some great people this year too! Killlashandra - you in??? :)

I am so wishing I could haul Kona, because I've never done a Play Day and am rather intimidated by those livery rides, hee hee!

Thank you thank you thank you for the awesome decals/clings!!!

Haven't heard from Killlashandra yet, but I sent her the decals. I figure that everyone who visited us last year should get theirs before I said anything on the blog.

Momma Fargo's in! She was the first to make her reservation :)

And Mrs Mom and Mr Mrs Mom are in, as far as I know, as well as LT from BrownEyed Cowgirls. I think one of the mini-clinics will be hoof health with them.

Is Momma P coming with you this year, or Mr. Daddy?

Of course, you could make two trips - one with Mr. Daddy for fun and the other for HCR with Momma P. You, of all people, know my sign could use the practice!

Megan and BuildASign rock ;)

Oh man, I sure wish I could join you. Until Dave finds a job, nothing much fun is happening around here so there's no way I'll be leaving either. Sure hope to make one of these trips sometime.

How long does it take for horses to acclimate? And what about the humans?? A little adjustment there maybe??

I so wanted to go last year. You guys are within an easy drive of travel isn't an issue.
I'll have to put it on my calendar, and see how those dates look a bit closer to the time.
Could a rank beginner come, too? (As in hubby who has sat on a horse 3 times?)

GunDiva said...

Dreaming, your husbanc can come along. If he feels like the horses are too much there are a lot of hiking trails, four hundred or so movies in the library at the lodge and some pretty great bed for napping :)

BrownEyed Cowgirls said...

I got mine. THANKS! They are very cool.

So far my schedule looks good for that weekend. I should go ahead and make my reservations huh?

BTW-How much is the Rendevouz? I never did ask and I don't see the cost on the HCR page.

Rachel said...

We need to keep working on Mr. Daddy... I think he may come along just to harass Bill... ;)

And after that awesome post about Perspective on your other blog... I come here to find a big ol' picture of my BUTT on your decal and blog. Methinks you are trying to motivate me, hee hee! :)

I think Momma P is in - would you believe it is up to her SCHOOL schedule? Gah, NURSES!

Momma Fargo said...

Hey...I loves me mine.

GunDiva said...

Momma Fargo - I'm glad you finally picked up your mail :)
