The picture above illustrates a common theme on the wagon - a nice family coming out to the road to see the horses and wagon. If there are little children and itís safe to do so, I almost always stop and let them pet the horses.
Tonight, Iím stopped at the Thompson farm in Hamilton. Not long after turning on to old route 45, Bill Thompson met me and asked if I needed a place for the night. Several years ago, Bill hosted a couple in a horse drawn wagon. I was given a copy of their book by Rachel Brubaker in Western Ohio. As I had finished reading the book, I passed it on for Bill to read.
The Thompsonís have the horses on a nice 5 acre field. Iím set up nicely with both water and power. - Thanks
Tomorrow, Iíll probably drive through the city of Columbus. The weather for the next few days is suppose to be terrific, with highs in the low 70ís.
In about a week, when I get near the city of Meridian, Iím going to try and find a place where I can put the horses up for a week. Theyíre do for a vacation on some grass and Iím do for one on the Gulfcoast and New Orleans.
