An end to the Blog Silence!

Hellooooo to all our friends, followers, and supporters! We are currently  just outside of Roanoke, VA- and let me tell you- it is sooooo exciting to be in our last state!

I have to apologize. I had written a blog about 2 weeks ago when I had 5 minutes of access to a computer, but in my tiredness, it appears that I forgot to publish it. I just discovered it in my drafts. So I thought yall had been slightly updated, but in reality, you’ve been biting your fingernails wondering if we have turned into roadkill or not!

Not- is the answer! Thank God! It has been close at times, though. We are all safe and sound and stopped for a break for our tired ponies. We had to push hard through the Appalachians and we had no access to technology during that time.

So with no further ado- I will get my fingers flying on the keyboard and start writing many exciting blogs as I go back through our journals from the past few weeks. We have so pretty exciting stories to tell,  so stay tuned!

And remember, blogs are behind our actual location. The next several days will be of memories we made as we rode through the mountains. Our current location can always be found under Ride Across America on the menu bar.  I have also updated several pages on the website- most notably the “Quick Facts”. They now include our estimated towns through our final state.

And one more note- please stayed plugged in to our progress as we come down the final leg of our journey. In the next week or so, Richard and I will be carefully planning a DATE for the FINISH at the Atlantic! So be checking flight prices and filling fluids in your vehicles so you can meet us there for the grand finale!


  1. GREAT to see your post. Looking forward to more. We have certainly missed seeing your updates, but understand the no access problem! Most importantly so glad God got you through the mountain area safe and sound.

  3. I’m so happy to see everyone is doing okay. Was getting a little nervous. YAY you’re almost there!! Would love to be there on the last day but can’t make it but you will definitely be in my prayers.

    God Bless,
