On March 1st, 2010, my friend Walter and I set off on an adventure with my Arabian horse, Sojourner. I rode Soj across America and Walter drove our little truck (with no trailer). The trip began in Los Angeles, California and successfully ended in Bath, New Hampshire 8 months and 14 days later. It was a 3,700 mile ride.
We rode in celebration of family and as an outreach to those dealing with divorce-related depression.
This ride tells a tale of love in many forms - through the people we meet along the way, our connection with the horse, with the land, and with each other.
As this blog goes on it gets more and more in depth with tons of photos and experiences. Snuggle in with a cup of tea and read this like a book. I have switched the blog around so it reads start to finish so you don't have to read backward (except the first entry).
Here is our story...
goats and computers don't mix...
Morning! I wanted to post my route soon, but I was at the ranch showing Henry and the guys there a video I made of ranch footage and one of the goats came to check out the wires and brought it crashing down. My computer won't turn on now. It's kinda funny because when I was video taping that same goat was in a playful mood and came at me to headbutt me about a million times. Toni, the mama of the ranch, laughed and said he doesn't like to be filmed. I got him on film anyway, but in the end that little rascal won.
