I’m borrowing a saddle and gear and riding to the coast with my Trusty steed Star-Buck. Once I’m there I’m calling the Trek done. However I’m not stopping my fundraiser once I’m home I’m going to ride as much as I can and put a dollar in for every mile I ride till I reach my Goal of 7000 dollars. It will probably take me a while to get there but it’s worth doing.
His injury has pulled him out of the Trek he is going to be on field rest for 6 months. So now I have to make a decision about the trek. Do I buy another horse and continue with the wagon or do I sell the wagon and ride Star-Buck the rest of the way home. Either way it’s going to be a major change in my life. It’s hard to imagine this trek with out my Renegade he’s been such a solid steady beautiful horse. He always gave 110 percent when he was working. I’ll miss him on the road.
As I left Fallon Nv I was on highway 95 going south which I knew was a very busy road. However I didn’t realize it was going to be a dangerous road. In the first 2 miles a big semi truck decided to play chicken with a oncoming semi truck right beside me. Then in the next 2 miles it happened two more times so I called my next host and asked for help. She immediately came and picked up my boys, Schatzie and I in her horse trailer. Her friend Gene also came to my rescue and picked up my wagon. What a awesome wonderful rescue. Thank you
It’s been a hard 6 days for the boys. They did 153 miles in the last 6 days through a hot and not much water terrain. The long days were because we had to go from water to water hole. But they held up well and we are now resting up at the Silver Sage horse boarding facility. We broke our record for the longest distance done this week and hopefully never to do again 39 miles in one day. I would like to thank all those that made this trek possible bringing us water and letting me know where water would be found.
I’ve made it to Winnemucca Nevada. There are to many people to thank for the help in the last two weeks. So I’m just going to to say Thank You to those who know who you are and who passed me down the Road to their friends and family. Here are some pictures of the last week.
I entered Nevada a couple of days ago but haven’t had phone service. I would like to thank Robin for keeping all of you updated on where I am and that I am doing great. Would also like to thank her and her family for the great hosting and scouting of roads and water.
As I prepare to leave Idaho I look back on friendly people and a state of a lot of different terrain. I would like to thank my Brother for helping me clean up my Wagon and putting new tires on it. I would like to Thank Bobby for the great food and excellent BBQ. Idaho was an awesome state to travel through. Childhood hunger is real and we as individuals can help. We might not be able to change the world but we can change a child’s life. Just help.
I’m in Mountain Home Id and at 3811 miles I’m probably halfway through the Childhood Hunger Awareness Trek. I’ve had an excellent trek so far. Thank you goes out to all the generous hosts and wonderful people who have helped me along the way. Yesterday was also my anniversary of being one year on the road.
As I left my hosts in Moreland Idaho I knew that the trip was going to be a bit rough. There were long distances that had no water or ranches to get water at. Also once I got on highway 20 there was going to be a lot of traffic. And all of that was correct but there was also a lot of beauty and grandure in the desert and Craters of the Moon area. Here are some of the pictures.
