  1. Congratulations!! The Licking Elementary 5th and 6th graders have been watching everyday. We all wanted to go on a field trip to watch you cross the bridge, but we have state testing this week.

  2. I FOUND THIS WEB SITE CALLED TRAILLINK.COM THEY HAVE ALL BIKE TRAILS IN THE U.S .THAT HORSES ARE ALLOWED ON AND IT SHOULD KEEP YOU OFF MAIN ROADS AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE
    (HOPE THIS CAN HELP YOU )

  3. Yee-Haw!! Of course, this means it is about time for another donation!
    I have also noticed that a fund-raising trip has also become an evangelism trip!
    The neat thing is, you may be 60% done with the trip, but with the higher population in the East, you may have only reached 30% of the hearts to be touched on this trip.

  4. Woohooooo!!! SOOOO excited for you, so proud of you and so glad to see everyone rallying around you and the amazing journey you are on and the vision of Hearts Up Ranch being a place of healing and hope one day! Love you lots!
