Hunger

FB_IMG_1440692202445.jpgThere are several different types of hunger. There is the hunger of the body, the hunger of the soul, the hunger of emotions, and the hunger of intellect. When children grow up hungry they do not develop correctly. My mission is to bring awareness of these type of hungers and the problems they cause when children are neglected and are hungry. Children that are hungry as a child become deficient adults and have a hard time becoming successful members of society.

Day 13 Lafollette TN

Hello first time in four days I have cell phone coverage. Here is a recap of the last four days. As I couldn’t go through the tunnel on 25E I decided to find another way. As Tackket creek rd to Carr Gap road seemed to be a viable option I decided to use it. But when I got there the road was to rough rocks to big for my wagon to go over so I had to turn around and go back to Clairfield Tn. At that point a lady said I could park   behind a church. Just after I got the horses settled a church bell rang so I went to ask what do I do.  An hour later a gentleman showed up and told me about a shortcut to Lafollette. So I had my answer.   I decided to go long way around and go through Lafollette TN which is where I’m at right now. The trip was amazing going through the mountains was beautiful but hard on the boys going up and down. So I am now parked at a small farm outside Lafollette TN. The boys were given a good pasture to graze on.  Coming through Lafollette was very nice people were generous and I’ll be donating to  https://nokidhungry.org in the name of the people of Lafollette TN.

Cumberland Gap

Alright talked to National Park Service. They said no to taking the boys thru Tunnel. So I’ll need a horse trailer for the boys, Buck and Renegade and a flat bed at least 15 feet long. Please network and help me find transport thru the Tunnel.

Ok family, friends and followers I’m going to need help. I have to cross the Cumberland Gap just past Middlesboro Ky. Now the only way I know of is 25E which has a Tunnel on it I’m pretty sure horses aren’t allowed. So I need information. Is there a trail or road that bypasses the Tunnel that horses can go on?

Failing that I need networking to find someone who will haul my horses and my wagon thru the tunnel. Please share this and get me the information or ride I will need. I’ll be in Middlesboro Ky in 7 to 9 days.received_864855150382140

First day

Day 1. We started the Trek today and arrived at our camping spot alive and in good condition. The boys are picketed and grazing. So the story starts, don’t use the hiking settings on your GPS unless you want to take some off the beaten path trails. We went down steep hills up steep hills and through a creek about     2 1/2 feet deep. The  boys Renegade and Buck handled everything like the great horses they are. When I reached my first camping spot I picketed the boys washed them down with clean water then used horse lineament on them, fed them, and now they are relaxing eatin. I’m not going to mention this stuff to often just assume that I do it every day. Was trying to add photos but it won’t let me.

Delay

Ok I’m delayed by one day. My water tanks didn’t work right so now I am delayed by one day so the parts that are needed can be located and installed. Frustrating I should have made sure they worked right a couple of days ago but just assumed they were good. Lol blast of delayed NASA.FB_IMG_1465165962344

Last training day

July 31 2018. It’s not really a training day as the boys, Buck and Renegade are on rest day number 4. However I’ve been calling this period of transition, training days so this is the last day. Tomorrow is the beginning of the Childhood Hunger Awareness Trek. Some people might call this an adventure, exciting, crazy, insane. I call it my mission and my life long dream. The mission it to bring awareness of Childhood Hunger and the damage it causes. The dream is mine I’ve had it since I was 11.   We have to pull together as a community  and travel the miles together and help the Children reach there full potential. No longer look away and say the government will help or its not my problem. It is our problem and we need to step up and help.  Childhood Hunger… One Mile is not Enough.

John 3:17-18

But if anyone has the world’s goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God’s love abide in him? Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth.

Day 53 Wagon and waiting

The wagon is done, its packed and ready. I’m giving the boys, Renegade and Buck four days off to totally rest them. So the official start date will be the 1st of August. That is if everything is a go. I feel like the astronaut sitting in the rocket going to the moon waiting for someone to push the button and saying its a go.

Thank you to all who have supported me thru the training period. Kristofor Wood, Jamie Cagle, Elizabeth Southard, Debora and Terry Simning, Tom Wood, Seth Bowden, Robert Quinn, Tamatha Perkins, Patsy Killian. Again Thank youIMG_20180728_122308922_HDR

 

Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap

Day 47

Training has gone well. I’ve teamed the boys up and and pulled the new wagon home. I’m impressed with Renegade and Buck they have taken every new experience with a willing heart, if a bit sceptical on Renegade’s part. Good horses are a must on this type of trip. My boys might not be a matched set but the have good minds and hearts.

1 in 6 children in America faces hunger, all across the United States, in every community. It’s real. With your help, we can change it.

The truth? We have plenty of food in this country. We also have effective programs to feed kids. The problem is not enough families have access to them. We can fix that with after school meals, summer meals and education in food skills for the parents.

https://www.nokidhungry.org

Please if you know of a child that goes hungry in your community don’t look away, don’t say its someone else’s problem. Help by talking to the parent, ask if you can help by giving the child or children a meal.

Day 37 of training

Childhood Hunger American Trek

The wagon isn’t done yet. The gentleman building it is having to work on it in between his other jobs. As mine was a rush order normally he wouldn’t have even started on it till the other jobs were done. However that being said it should be done by Monday. Then I’ll start training the horses with it. The tentative plan is, I’ll work the horses 5 days then give them

2 days off, then five more days then 4 days off. Then I’ll leave on my trek. The 4 days is so they will be totally rested when I start. So the start date has been put back by two weeks.
