Hampton Beach is end of man's long journey with horse
His journey, which started in Brookings, Ore., at the Pacific Ocean, ended at Hampton Beach Saturday afternoon with a hoof-print touching the Atlantic Ocean. It was an eight-month journey that carried them 3,800 miles through 14 states.
"Life is ephemeral. It's best to enjoy what's in front of us. When I thought about traveling by horse, I decided, 'Charge!' I enjoy the back-country and long-distance traveling. On this journey, it became more about the people I met along the way."
The Warner native is now home for the Thanksgiving holiday. His journey, which was chronicled on Facebook, follows him through the weather, across bridges and into the homes of strangers he encountered.
At the end of the journey, he opened a bottle of champagne and celebrated his accomplishment. And Pepper? She got down in the sand, rolled around on her back, feet up in the air, and wiggled around in the cool sand before getting up again, the same way she did in Oregon when they left.
