Cheers! Mule Polly and I don’t usually start our days with a glass of wine…unless we make the Hungarian press. Here’s more on that Hungarian wine thing.

Summer’s winding down for mule Polly and me. We’re back home in western North Carolina after a great summer wagon tour of Colorado. We’re staying plenty busy putting the final touches on the Lost Sea Expedition TV series, the 4-part series about our wagon voyage across the Great Plains.
All the latest news – from hurricanes to yogurt to interviews – on the LostSeaExpedition.com site. We’re down to the last 30 days of raising funds to cover the production of the series. If you’ve enjoyed traveling with me on RiverEarth.com and would like to help out (we still need to pay the audio engineer….) you can do so right here.

Okay, you can have a glass of pinot grigio, too. Cheers!

Mule Polly takes a grazing break on a canal along the Cache La Poudre river (french for “cache the powder”) north of Fort Collins, CO.

Mule Polly and I have hit the road for the summer. We’re touring Colorado visiting with underwriters interested in sponsoring the Lost Sea Expedition TV series, the 4-part program about mule Polly and my 14 month wagon voyage across America. The series will premier on Rocky Mountain PBS.
Lots more about the voyage and TV series here on the LostSeaExpedition.com site. If you’d like to make a gift to the series, you can do so right here.

Caaaarefuuuuullll with those scissors. Polly waits patiently as I trim her forelock for Leatherwood Mule Days. From her calm eye, you can tell she knows there’s a head rub waiting when the job is done.

I sharpened the scissors. I caught mule Polly. Then I trimmed her mane and tail and took a swipe at her toes.
Man, she’s as spiffed up as mule can be for Leatherwood Mule Days. I’m already thinking Coon Jump, pasture camping and starlight dancing.

More over here on my LostSeaExpedition.com site.

Some voyages include dolphins off the bow (Falkland Islands, Southern Ocean). Others entail pickle barrels lashed up under a deck (western North Carolina). Both are fine ways to escape.

Some days, a man dreams of sailing off in a schooner, dolphins dodging the striker stay. Others, he’s content with a pond and a pickle barrel. It’s okay to aim low when you’re shooting for something big.

bernie harberts mule polly
Polly takes a break to visit with some young visitors during her walk across the USA. That 14 month voyage became the basis of the Lost Sea Expedition TV series. She’s now hanging out with her old mule buddies in Asheboro, NC. A bit more about Polly right here. (Outside Hulett, Wyoming)

The past weeks have been crazy-hectic here at RiverEarth.com. We’re pulling hard as we can to wrap up post-production on the Lost Sea Expedition TV series. Still, mule Polly, Julia and I wanted to wish you all the best for the new year. Is mid-January too late for that? Nah, I didn’t think so…..
See you out there in 2017. In the meantime, all the Lost Sea Expedition updates are going up here at LostSeaExpedition.com.
