Hoofing and sharing it.

A while back I decided to travel across North Carolina by mule. Trouble was, I didn’t own a saddle bag, horse trailer, or, yeah, it gets worse, a vehicle.

I did own a mule named Woody.

Mule Woody and pony Maggie on the North Carolina leg of our 13 month journey across America. I’m grinning because I’m trying out the blue saddle bags I just made of old horse blankets and leather scraps.

By dint of sewing, borrowing and improvising, I clobbered together enough gear together to get across the Tar Heel State. That went so well, I traveled another three seasons to the Pacific Ocean.

Curious how this catch-as-catch-can approach to life might apply to your own?

Then check out the “Hoofing It: by Mule Across North Carolina” program Thursday, June 18 at the Madison County Public Library in Marshall, North Carolina. The program begins at 6:30p. ‘be great to visit with you afterwards.
