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...
Camping tonight. No computer. Will be in Payson tomorrow and we are staying 2 nights so I can write. Saw a snake the width of my forearm and wild boars. The snake was deep Orange ish red with black diamonds and black spots. It gave me a little adrenaline rush. I think it was sending "get away" vibes. Walter is setting up camp. Soj is eating. Jordan is back with the broken ambulance. Gotta figure out a trailer situation. Lots to take care of in Payson.
