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
