"Not all who wander are lost."

Not all who wander are lost. necklaceNo keys, no home, no problem!no keys

It took us about 24 hours to pack everything…apartment, barn, kids and horses all in one load.

Maybe someone living in an RV would be faster and I give them credit for that…but I think we should get bonus points for each kid (3) and each horses (6) that we have with us! For that reason I am still claiming the title of nomad.

nomad [noh-mad]

noun 1. a member of a people or tribe that has no permanent abode but moves about from place to place,usually seasonally and often following a traditional route or circuit according to the state of thepasturage or food supply.

2.any wanderer; itinerant.
Just imagine how much stuff we could have fit if we had this truck!
Aaron ranch truck

Now that’s a big truck!

The current plan is to drive to Ohio where we will visit family and go to a horse show. Then onward to Pennsylvania for a month or so. More on that part of the trip later.

    Really enjoy your blog, Stacy. You are very dear. Thanks so much for sharing your experience and experiences with us all.

    I moved to TX 35 years ago when I married my native Texan husband. Still here, still married, two children grown, three dogs and 4-6 horses to call my own.

    I admire you!!!!! not only as an amazing horse trainer but a wife, mother, and most of all a woman that follows her dreams while running a home! I hope and pray I can do all that in my lifetime 🙂
