12/16/12, Valley Falls, OR - Itís been a month since the team conquered their last hill, galloping up a sharp incline to complete trip four. Averaging over 100 miles a week, the lads leaned into their collars and pulled an 8000 to 9000 pound load across mountains, deserts, plains and down river valleys in the magnificent American West. Along the way, I had the pleasure of meeting some really tremendous people.
Now that the journey is over, the Lads, Jacquie and I are settling down and enjoying life here in southern Oregon The team has a nice one acre paddock to move around in, but I started building them a walk-in barn for shelter from the winter storms. Iím a week into the project and have another week to finish it up.
After Christmas, Jacquie and I plan on enjoying a couple of days on the coast. On January 7, I start work at the nuclear plant in Colorado.
