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...

Long ride tomorrow...


I'm getting up super early tomorrow. Don't want to. Don't want to. Don't want to.
It's too hot to get up late though. Maybe I can be in the saddle by 6am. That's the goal. We might ride 35 miles tomorrow which kinda stinks, but we had a great rest here in Clovis.
We are with the kindest, most wonderful man called Dusty. We haven't had a ton of time with him unfortunately, but he's a very cool guy.

I'll tell more about our time here soon, but my computer is nearly out of battery (although I did get the car charger for it).

Walter has been patiently waiting as I keep saying "3 more minutes" so I should zip out of here (although he did just say he can wait forever... *sigh* )

Alright! More soon!


  1. I hope you enjoyed your stay in Clovis, its a beautiful area in the spring! That's incredible what your doing! Stay safe and cool in the next coming days, they say a heat wave is coming.

  2. We had a wonderful time in Clovis! It was just perfect. :)

  3. I thought the word *sigh* at the end of your post said a lot right there.
