Take the long way home
Our pal Howard Wooldridge's odyssey is over at last. He hit the streets of Manhattan yesterday, completing his cross country ride and entering the records books as the first long rider to make the trip in both directions. It's good to see he got a nice piece in the NYT and some TV news coverage for the grand finale.
You can read all about his saga on the LEAP site of course which provides links to other press coverage and his blog. And don't forget, lead horse Misty has a book coming out about their journey in just a couple of weeks. See the site for details or orders can also be submitted by calling 1-888-280-7715.
I wanted to be in Manhattan at the end but once again my schedule conflicted with the grand event. Nonetheless I was there in spirit. Congratulations Howard. Job well done and I hope the three of you get a good long rest.
