From the north and east and BIG RIGS. In Staunton take US 250 West until you cross a wee mountain. At the bottom entering Headwaters, turn left on 616 (The only road). At the bridge T junction left on Cowpasture River Rd. We are 12.8 miles from 250 and you’ll cross the river three times. At the third bridge you’ll pass Berriedale Rd. Continue 1/10th mile. On your right you’ll see a sheepdog pointing leftward and on the left, the Yucatec Farm sign marks your road.

 

If BIG RIGS overshoot, continue a mile or so to the Fire Department, turn, return past the farm (DON’T ATTEMPT THE MAILBOX ROAD. last BR who ignored the warning cost him $1000 in damages), Uturn at Sugar Tree Road (marked with a sign) and make a second pass at the BIG RIG road. You’ll get here sooner or later. We haven’t lost anyone yet.

This is a nice trial in an absolutely beautiful location, and benefitting Mid-Atlantic Border Collie Rescue - what's not to like? Don't miss it if you can attend, even for just a day or as a spectator (or volunteer).

 

Dear Donald - DH said that if the calves are vaccinated and weaned in time, I'll be able to come as a volunteer (and return that Dri-Marker that I left in my pocket two years ago...).
