Never far from winter - our ride through the Dakotas
Apollo and I recently completed our journey through two more states (our 18th and 19th): South Dakota and North Dakota.  North Dakota was the farthest north we’ll travel this year, and good thing too, because this far north it’s already looking and feeling ...

Whorlology 101
One day as I was riding down the road, somewhere in rural Washington state, a lady stopped me to offer water for Apollo. As he happily slurped down his bucket’s contents, she casually observed that his whorls were well placed for this sort of adventure. How...

As many of you have noticed, Hermes’ carrier is no longer hanging on the side of Apollo’s saddle. But first, for those of you who are new to following my journey....  who the heck is Hermes? Almost exactly a year ago now, I was camped in the backyard of a n...

A Fond Farewell to Nebraska
First, a confession.  During the winter when I was working on my plans for this year, I was not looking forward to riding through the midwest. Booooorrrrinng, I said.  I figured it would be one long flat trudge through cornfields.  I am happy to admit that ...

The Myth of Simplicity
“Oh, how nice it must be to live the simple life!” These are words that plague me along the road from passing strangers.  We modern Americans love stories of the simple past when our ancestors lived off the land, free of the burden of Facebook privacy issue...

Iowa, Our Sweet 16th
Iowa was definitely a sweet spot in our ‘Ride so far, so it is only fitting that it was our 16th state.  Not only was it pretty (but so have been most states so far), and had perfect summer weather (probably more a matter of luck than state quality), I had ...

We’ll miss you, Missouri!
Apollo and I spent almost two weeks riding through the northwest corner of Missouri.  It is a beautiful state, with rolling hills covered in farmland and thick clumps of trees. We entered the state from Atchison KS, crossing the Missouri River on a big, bus...

How to be a hosting helper
As you might imagine, having been on the road for over a year now means that Apollo and I have met a lot of people.  And we could not have gotten as far as we have so far without the help of those of us who have hosted us for a night (or sometimes longer). ...

Apollo, I’ve a feeling we’re not in Kansas anymore
Our journey through Kansas was long and sometimes complicated.  It began last October, included a longer than expected winter break, and finally concluded a few days ago when we finally crossed the Missouri River on the eastern border of Kansas. We’re now i...

Horsing Around at the Expo
Let me just start by saying that I love the Western States Horse Expo, which is held every June in Sacramento.  I’ve been every year since I moved to Northern California, except last year when I was on the road somewhere in Washington state.   As much as th...
