We’ve received another letter today from Bernice Ende on her 5,000-mile journey around the western
We are now a five day ride from
When we came into Mosquero, the folks were friendly and many had heard of us coming. I asked if I could be put up for a few days. Actually many had heard of our coming, as the stop in Beuyeros a few days earlier had sent word. Sheriff Flowers, being a cowboy himself, had stopped 12 miles or so out of town to make sure we had a safe journey into his town, where we were greeted minutes after arriving. We found a corral and shed where we now "live" or call home. I have not slept in a house since leaving
I have become seasoned to the weather and I feel it has brought my horse, Claire, and me closer together as a traveling trio. My horse, Honor lies next to us and will eat around the campsite area before stretching to the end of her picket line. We stay together better because of it.
We leave Saturday morning for our final five day stretch into
I apologize for there are no photos this time. I have three rolls to develop when we get into town, then I will send many. Well, that’s the word from the trail. Many thanks for sending the emails. I wish I could send a video or somehow share in more detail this remarkable way of traveling. I don’t know how many times I have said that people would never believe this. Each and everyday is so uncertain. I never know where I will sleep, where I will get food, or what the road ahead is like, yet each night I lie down and all of our needs have been met somehow, and we are safe, warm, and dry. I am always grateful to those who stop by with curiosity. I always appreciate the generosity that comes our way as it would be quite impossible to ride long rides without the help of others.
Best wishes to all of you at Outfitters Supply in
