I have been planning a ride across the US to the 48 state capitals for many years and now am in my final stages. I am leaving Olympia, Washington on May 1, 2012. I am wondering if anyone has any suggestions as to who I would contact in each state if I need to make arrangements with officials for riding through the states. I have taken into account the riders that have done this before me, and this trek will mark the 100th anniversary of the first horsemen to do such a ride. I am also thinking of donating any money that anyone donates to equine rescues and epilepsy research. I probably will be doing this alone, but any rider is welcome to join me on the trail. I will have a website up to track my route and provide a way to donate if you would like. Feel free to email me if you like. Also I will be starting a blog of my journey and provide a link to it so that you all can follow if you like. If anyone would like to provide a place to stay please contact me as well.
