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...

Merry Christmas Eve!

Nat King Cole is playing on the record player and the tree is lit! Cait and I are about to make the most delicious chocolate cake ever. It's becoming our traditional Christmas Eve cake. This is going to be it's second year. Uh oh, Cait just said she doesn't remember which recipe she usually uses. Ah well, we fudge them half the time anyway.

  1. Of course you fudge them (pun intended?) Sounds yummy none the less. Have a MERRY CHRISTMAS...and I am going straightaway to the latest AHW article.

    Oh... thought of Wicklow when I saw this... this equestrian vacation is named after her :)



    Blessings for the Best New Year to You and your Love's!
