I’m in Jasper Tn at a very nice farm with a generous family who put me up for this night. The boys have a comfortable paddock and shelter. Childhood Hunger Awareness Trek is trying to raise awareness of the hunger our children in America are facing every day. Please if you see a need Help. One mile is not enough go the extra mile to help.
Today was a good day. The Boys are doing well and I’m in Chattanooga TN on the East side at the Camping World camp ground. They were very kind to let me park here. I’ve met a lot of wonderful people who work here. Thank you for letting me stay.
As I sit here and update my blog it’s cold outside. My phone says 25 degrees. But my Childhood Hunger Awareness Trek will go on I’ll be starting out tomorrow heading west. Here is my route for the next week.
I’m in Murphy NC and sleeping in a Tree house tonight cool isn’t it. I’m almost completely healed up. I’ll be entering Tennessee tomorrow on highway 64. The boys are doing well and regaining their confidence. Schatzie is being her usual charming self.
I’m heading west again. Still sore and a bit banged up but still moving forward. A great big Thank you goes out to Don Collins for taking care of my Boys and for transporting them to Candler. Also for helping me with the harness repair that was needed. Another Thank you to Annette and Albert for putting me up and doctoring my wounds. I would also like mention Jacksons Saddle Shop at 641 Patton Ave, Asheville, NC 28806 for donating the items I needed to repair my harnesses.
I’ll be heading back on road soon so thought I would post the next weeks route. My route is Enka, Cherokee, Murphy, then Cleveland Tn if you know of anyone along this route who might like to host me please contact me.Please remember that my route is somewhat flexible. I’ll be starting about 10 miles from where I had the accident as I don’t deem it necessary to travel the same road twice.
I am sore but recovering nicely. I would like to thank Roxanne and Jeremy for stopping my horses and staying with them till Don Collins came to pick them up and take them to his stables Thank you Don. The Lady that stopped and gave me hot cocoa and walked me to the corner where the ambulance picked me up, Thank You I wish I knew your name. My thanks goes out to the first responders and the police for their help also to the animal control people who took care of Schatzie while I was unable to do so. Many thanks to Annette and Albert Corrivue for picking up Schatzie and rescuing me from the hospital and give me a place to recover. Thank you all so much. Angela
I went over Black Mountain today. Was warned that it was steep and a hard haul for the horses. But something inside said to do it. I’ve learnt to listen to that voice. So I did it and I’m very glad I did it was awesome. Wasn’t as steep as some of the mountain ridges I crossed heading east. It’s a nice ride and I would recommend it to anyone for a good hike or ride.
I met a Long Rider a couple days ago and spent the night at his farm. Bernie Harbert and his girlfriend Julie were very kind and gracious. Bernie has done several mule trips across America and some other Adventures. You can follow him on his website site https://riverearth.com.
I just put blankets on my two boys. I left two blankets with my friend in Kentucky because I didn’t think I would need them this early. I went outside this morning and my boys were shivering. So I tied the two survival blankets I had on them with twine. My host gave me one blanket that fit Renegade and then she drove me to a Tack shop where I bought one for Buck. So now my boys are warm.
