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...
We had such a beautiful ride today. Highway 87 is just gorgeous. I am very, very tired tonight though and I have had a glass and a half of red wine and an Irish coffee along with a big dinner so my system is rapidly shutting down. I will post a good entry tomorrow though because we are staying here tomorrow night as well so I will have some time.
Right now we are in a gorgeous home with a wonderful couple in Payson. We are going to be on the radio tomorrow as well, by the way. It's called 1420 AM KMOG. I think it's live. I just have to show up some time between 2 and 5pm.
I am in a bed right now with very soft sheets and my stomach is full and my mind is going over wonderful conversation. Perfect.
Robbie (our host) has already asked what I like for breakfast and told me what we are having for lunch. How did she know all I think about is food??? :)
Lots to tell tomorrow, but for tonight, Good night. :)
