The Nomadic Equestrians

It was dark when I pedaled into Medicine Bow. When I was passing the Virginian hotel/ bar when this woman yells out "wow, you gotta let me ride that thing". I said "OK" So this really drunk, short woman rode off on my bike. When she came weaving back, Blake was walking up and she asked him if he wanted to ride it but he said "No, I stick to ridin horses".
We started talking and sure enough Him and his partner Adam were riding horses cross country. They shared there hotel room with me and in the morning over coffee we talked about car free societies, just horses and bikes, it could work? They have 7 horses, 3 for packing gear and the other 4 they rotate riding. They started out in Colorado and are heading now for Montana. These were, hands down, the nicest Cowboys I'v ever met! The best of green pastures to you guys.

  1. yes bro! this is the first i've checked out yr blog, but i just decided to google yr name b/c hubert said that some rinky-dink newspaper wrote about you and lo-and-behold i find this. holy run-on-sentence, batman!

    i'm in providence. on my own mini bike tour: boston to NC. the CDT looks amazing! definately not like the east coast. having only really toured the west coast has spoiled me. it's so flat and populated here! definitely not the grandeur of the west.

    well kurt, keep truckin and i hope that maybe one day our paths will cross again...
