Even the best laid plans sometimes go astray as demonstrated at times by our ride across America! But we will try…..! So, our estimated route is as follows for Illinois:
We will be going diagonally north near Jonesboro, Anna, and Vienna. Then following the River to River Trail which goes near Golconda, Rosiclare, and Equality. We will take the Ferry at Cave-in-the-Rock over the Ohio River.
Rumsey, Calhoun, Fordsville, just south of Hardinsburg, Elizabethtown, Bardstown, Lawrenceburg, Versailles, Lexington/Horse Park ….
If you wish to alert local media or offer hospitality to the riders, please refer to this updated route. You can also find this on the menu bar under Ride Across America and “trail quick facts”. The rest of Kentucky, West Virginia, and onward to Washington D.C. and Delaware will be posted there in the future.
Side note- If you happen to know someone who owns a large boat or barge and is willing to ferry our horses across the Chesapeake Bay, let us know!
