So I have this crazy goal that in 2012 to ride from coast to coast across the united states starting in Maine, and ending in California. Yea it's 3 year's away, but I know that if I actually want to do this (I'll be 18 and my horse will be 12) I need to start planning this trip NOW...haha.
Anyways I started a blog on it (and I put a link on the blog to here):
Giving 'roadtrip' a whole new meaning
Just really it's the planning process updates on how things are going, I'm not going to get more serious (as in hardcore planning serious, like where my horse is going to stay along the way, fairrer, vet and chiropractor serious) until probably 2011-very early 2012. But I am going to be doing alot of how the heck I am getting from one coast to the other planning in the next year or two!
Right now it seems so impossiable and far off but I am determined that this can be done (even if it will take a while!), and that Winnie will be fully capable of making a 3000 mile + trip!
I would be more than appreciative if some endurance/long distance trail riders could throw some tips out there for me, getting in shape, conditioning, actually riding etc. I'm not planning on trying to do all 3000 miles at once when the time comes. There's going to be some break's, I wouldn't be riding all 7 day's a week and I would have no intention of even trying this is I at the time thought my horse could not handle it for whatever reason.
So we'll see where this idea takes me (litterly...haha)
