Albuquerque to Reserve

Bernice has sent us another letter! It’s always quite the treat to receive a letter from Bernice on her grandiose adventure through the United States as she rides with her horse, Honor, and dog, Claire.

Her current letter details the ride from Albuquerque, New Mexico, to Reserve, New Mexico, where she braves snowstorms and temperatures below zero through the hospitality of those she has never met. It is amazing that people can be exceedingly kind to strangers, trusting them and understanding their situations. Bernice finds this compassion again and again. Perhaps people find the humanity in their hearts for Bernice because she is so polite, even likening asking someone to use their computer to rudely talking on a cell phone in a restaurant.

Bernice tells us that Claire, Honor, and she are doing well. She even says she’s received a number of compliments on the condition of Claire and Honor! She maintains her wellness on a mere $20 to $25 a week!

For her next journey, Bernice has been approached about a trail from Missouri to Oregon! She says, however, that we will see. Only time will tell to see if she continues to her exciting adventures. For now she continues her adventure to Stafford, Arizona along Highway 78.

We hope to hear from her as soon as possible, and as always we’ll keep you updated on the latest happenings.
