Milton Leads Into The Home Stretch, Virtual Tevis, 95 and 81 Miles, 52 Days


Awareness of the outside world. Whatever: An Actual Party of Death, Now, Sept 10, 2021. Whatever: How Bad Should We Feel When the Willfully Unvaccinated Die?, August 9 2021. Tomorrow, I promise to recognize some other current crisis.

Getting ready to ride at Full Circle Horse Park.

Milton is almost done with his 100 miles. It’s not really going to do him any good. He will still accompany Rodney’s miles, as Rodney did last year while Milton finished.

We could have “waited” with Milton, counting only the miles we do together. I figured that with life one never knows. With horses, one never knows squared.

Turtle power!

Where are we virtually?

Milestones. Milton.

Milestones. Rodney.
