I previously had horses, but due to nasty divorce, I sold the 2 best trail horses known to man.
Last night, my wife asked me this question - "if you had $100,000 and a month of vacation, what would you do?"
Without hesitating, I told her I'd get on a horse with whatever I could carry and ride west for 2 weeks, turn around and ride back home.
Since I was a young kid of 14, I've wanted to jump on a horse and just ride. I don't have a destination in mind. I really don't even care which direction I go. I feel like I was born about 150 years late!! I want to be a drifter, with just enough money to keep me and my horse healthy, a pistol belt full of ammo and clothes to keep me warm!
I'm 38 years old now - I've got a few years until I retire with a good pension and hopefully I'll still be in good health. My retirement plan involves a comfortable saddle, good horse, and an accurate rifle! I plan on taking off on a cross country trip of the good ole USA.
I'd just like to know how many of you out there think I'm crazy? Who has the same dream? How many of you would let me camp on your land as I pass through?
Happy new year everyone - may your trails be as gentle as the horse you ride!
