I am in Cherokee Oklahoma I am at the fairgrounds and my boys are in stalls and I have access to an arena so in between rain storms I can turn them out and let them run and play. It is supposed to rain the next couple days so I’ll be staying here till Thursday mmorning. I’ve got all the hay I need thanks to Bill Allen a fine gentleman here in Cherokee Oklahoma.
Oklahoma has been a very relaxing state. The roads have been mostly dirt or gravel. Today I drove all day and only seen three cars. The people have been extremely kind and generous.
When I got to Stillwater I expected only to be resting for one day. But like all plans it had to change. When I checked out my boys on the rest day I saw that Star-Buck had a swollen spot on his side and that he was tender on the rub marks. I immediately knew that I was going to have to rest for a longer-term break. So I contacted Cara Shelton that I had been talking to about Hosts on my travels. She gave me a number to call and that lady called her cousin and got me a really nice place to stay till Star-Buck heals up and the winter storm passes. God is good
I’m visiting my Sister and Nephew and their families close to Oklahoma City Oklahoma. One of my blessings on this trip is that I have family spread out across the USA so that I get to see them as I go. This is my Route for the next week or so. Please remember my route may change at a moment’s notice due to traffic or weather. God bless.
I’m in McAlester Oklahoma at the Pittsburg cattlemen Association Arena. They were kind enough to let me Camp out here tonight. And I have internet yayy. I had a very nice hosting last night in Adamson Ok all the neighborhood stopped and checked on me. Thank you Adamson Ok. I also stayed at the Robbers Cave State Park in Wilburton Ok. And would like to thank the people there who helped me get to town to wash clothes. Would also like to thank Matt and his wife and friends who made time to help me fix my lights on my wagon and took Schatzie and I to the Vet so that Schatzie could get to feeling better. Matt Parker is the Athletic Director and Head Baseball Coach of the Eastern Oklahoma State College. A big thank you to all of these people.
Dirt roads are a gift, when I go down a dirt road I’m not thinking about the bumps and pot holes. I’m thinking about how our pioneer ancestors travel roads similar to the one I’m on. How even though the world has changed the mountains and ridges have remained the same. How that little stream of water is probably the same stream that a thousand horses have been watered at in times past. About how the sights, sounds and yes smells are the same as my great great grandparents seen and smelled. All I can think of is that life is good and God is great to lead me on this mission of mine.
God is great.
I’m at the Arkansas Horseshoeing School in Centerville Ar. They are generous enough to not only put me and the boys up for the night they are also going to work on the boys hooves. Resetting or reshoeing the boys as needed. http://mobile.arkansashorseshoeingschool.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Farkansashorseshoeingschool.com%2F&utm_referrer=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.com%2F#3059
Hi, I’m Angela, And this is my mission and my dream: Riding for Childhood Hunger Awareness. If you are interested in what Renegade, Star-Buck, Schatzie and I are doing, please read on.
But what exactly are we doing, you’re no doubt wondering? I am traveling alone with my horses and wagon. 8000+ miles, from Liberty Kentucky to the East coast (Sunset Beach NC) to the West coast and back, on a continuous ride.
There 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.
I started in August of 2018 and approximately ending in August 2020.
My mission is to bring awareness by talking to the media online and news papers, and if all goes well to the Television networks, local and national. You all can help with this call your local or national news and tell them about my mission and give them my Facebook page.
I know some of you are wondering why. Why do this type of trip? Why the length? Well my desire to do this Trek was started when I was 11 and read about the Abernathy brothers. But even before that I was always looking and wondering what was over the next hill, beyond the next curve of the road. I was always exploring trails less traveled to find out where they went. I am a tractor trailer driver, a trucker. I’ve drove all 48 eight states and Canada. But all I’ve seen was the main roads, I’ve drove by national parks, through wilderness areas , by historical signs. Yet could never stop and actually see the places where history was made. I want to travel at a pace where I can take roads less traveled. Talk to people who I would never see if I was traveling at the modern pace in a car. I want to hear peoples stories of their lives and their ancestors. I want to inspire people to follow their dreams no matter how hard or crazy they seem. I want to bring awareness of Childhood Hunger in America and that one person can make a difference.
Thank you and hope to see you on the road.
