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...

23 miles...


Camping. On phone. We're getting good at camping! Had a great dinner, fire is warm by the tent, music is playing, Walter is rubbing my back as I type, Soj is by us on the highline and is on soft ground he can lay on...tomorrow we will be in Heber. It's a 28 mile ride. I think I will have my computer tomorrow. Thank you to all of you for your support and optimism. And Daddy...good thinking about the AC! Walter will leave it off. It's funny you said that because the signs say "save your engine, turn your AC off.

No news from Jordan yet, but we miss him and are so grateful for the amount of help and energy he gave to this little adventure.

More when I have a computer....

  1. Finally got to a computer. Don't stress it Linny sweetie.. I have no support...and all is provided, hay, grain, transportation and great hosts who are forwarding my gear. Luck has changed...faith is bigger and the ride continues. When all that drops behind.. I promise it will be ok..I promise! From Missouri...400 miles from home... 1000 to go -- Your riding partner. 18 miles tomorrow as gear will be driven forward for me. SO TOTALLY COOL!
