I ran into Roy a few weeks back on the way to town. I was so taken with his get-up, that I stopped to talk with him. I was intrigued, and invited him to stop by our place if he was ever in the area. Well, yesterday he blessed us with a visit. Roy has been living on the road in his horse-drawn wagon for about 6 years now. He's looking for a female companion....
He's super-nice and shared a wonderful view of humanity that has been nothing but hospitable and kind during his travels.
It's crazy to think that horse-travel is so do-able today. And it's equally crazy to think that it is so unusual just, what, 100 or so years out of nothing-but horse travel.
