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...

internet trouble. can only type in subject line. in matador, tx. hot riding, mind over matter, that's for sure. blah. lots to tell soon. 31 miles tom.



  1. 31 hot long miles of nothing... GOOD JOB> Ya, that HAD to be mind over matter.

  2. Look at that. A message just for me. Signed with my name (Tom) at the end and everything. :)

  3. And yet, as you wrote in an earlier post, there will be a time when you will wish you were on the road. For the mind will put the "bad" into perspective and you will remember the "good" best of all. The "bad" simply allows you to better appreciate the "good." Love, Dad
