I steered the mules in to Trenton, Missouri to pick up a a canvas water bucket at the post office. Thanks, Julia, for supporting your husband in his rambles! Brick, Cracker and I arrived last night (Thursday). Right now we’re camped at veterinarian Alan Alumbaugh’s clinic Affordable Veterinary Care.
The plan is to rest the mules ’til Sunday. Thanks Alan and Theresa for putting us up. Also, thanks Carol at Orshelen farm supply for steering us to Alan.
A tip ‘o the hat to the Trenton post office. I picked up my package from Julia…only to discover I’d forgotten to pick up another General Delivery package from Renegade Hoof boots, maker of the hoof boots I use on the mules. As I was kicking myself back at the vet clinic, the package showed up. The post office had heard I was staying at the Affordable Veterinary Care and had gone ahead and sent the package out to me. Thanks guys!

Here are a few more photos of our last 4 days on the road from La Plata to Trenton. More to come as I the mules and I get settled in.
