Iím now camped at Hony and Randyís place. Randy, I and friend Chris knocked off a few beers while Hony cooked a magnificent supper.
The horses are bedded down in a corral sized enclosure and are fed. They all seem in good health and didnít get any harness rubs or loose shoes.
Tomorrow morning, we should be pulling out around 9 am. My friend Beth is going to ride with me for a couple of days. After that her father, Fred is going to ride a long for a few more days. Fred makes a great gin and tonic, which is an important asset to have when traveling by horse and wagon.
On a scale of 1 to 10, I would call this day a 9. Iím a little apprehensive, but not nervous. Because this trip has no set goals, Iím not trying to break a speed record. Weíre going to start the trip off slow with the primary emphasis being the health and well being of the horses. It will take a while for them to get in top shape and for all of them to pull well together. In the meantime, I have to keep them healthy, otherwise weíre not going anywhere. What a Great Day!
