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...

Ozzy Osbourne, sizzlin' grills...


...those are the sounds we're hearing. We are in Lemitar. We rode 38 miles today. Soj is doing well, but we broke 2 boots. Bummer.
We are at a truck stop now. I'm starving and the food just came! Hopefully I will have a computer tomorrow night.

This is our tent after Walter stepped out of it and only I was in it. The winds were crazy!!!

  1. The photography continues to be worth a show of its own when you are ready to do that. I am sure that all of us who follow your blog are impressed with the way you convey your thoughts and feelings as you ride. But the photos are truly outstanding as well. I do hope that you might be able to put together a public show of your trip when the time to do so arrives.
