I don’t know if you knew there is this guy Bryan Brant who rode from Kansas to Maine, started last year and was in Mane a couple weeks ago. He decided he didn’t want to winter over there as it was hard last year when he stopped in New York. So he set up Pay pal account two weeks ago and within 4 days had all the money to move his 3 horses and dogs to Tennessee so he could continue on to Texas. I posted your trip and info on his page, it would be great if you two could talk about all your experiences being on the road with horses. He is part Mohawk and was recreating his great great grandfathers journey. I met him last summer as he came through our town and have followed him since. I always thought I would have liked to do what the two of you have done, what a wonderful freeing experience for both of you. But look up his info and all the posts about setting up paypal.
I’ve got one stall in my round building with a round pen attached, a spare futon and a good camera in Gray Maine.
hi Marilyn – thank you for the invite – currently in Saco trying to get over a cold in my lungs – heading towards North Yarmouth once i’m fit – still unclear as to best route – probably either Gorham (staying out of traffic) or via trailer (if my cough doesn’t improve) – right now I think i’ll be east of you? will keep you posted if i’m heading your way! blessings and adventures

It was good to hear about your progress. Beautiful country – great pictures of New Mexico. Glad that you are well. We were kind of wondering for a while how it was going. Sorry to hear that your Forest Service experience wasn’t like what you found in Show Low. No maps available, ugh. I have talked to two different people friends who saw you going thru Show Low over on Porter Mt. Rd. Keep up the good travels. Barbara

Hey yall I feel blessed to have been here for yall when I was, I only wish I could have been a better host. I’ll see if I can make up for it down the road. If I hit some gold or sell a meteorite I’ll make it up to ya Sea, Gryph, and Fox, Thanks for blessing this place with yall’s company, couldn’t have ask for a better crew of guests…
I am glad u found a place. I did not know how to contact you since I only had Sea’s number. I had located a place for u too. Have a safe trip.
So….I am the gal who stopped on the road (165th Street East) in Llano because I am very curious and wanted to get the scoop on these lovely ladies and their horses! I put my last Peruvian mare down over 4 years ago and my corral was filled with weeds….so having these 4 lovely ponies has been a great pleasure and now my corral is free of weeds! We have had an outstanding time with Sea and Gryph….kindred spirits on this earthly plane….and we wish them the happiest of trails, abundant health for them and their ponies, lots of friendly encounters with generous people, and lots of smiles and hugs! May your trip exceed any expectations you may have! Lots of hugs from Connie (Constancia) and Robert!
Hello Sea and Gryph – what fun it was to meet you at the Llano Community Association potluck on Saturday. Thank you for giving my daughter Georgia her first horse ride this morning. She can’t stop talking about riding Jesse James bareback. My parents, my aunt and I are all excited to follow your journey on this blog. Meeting you two has stirred up our imaginations and our conversations too!
Sea and Gryph,
We are routing for you here in North Miami! Spreading the word as time and opportunity allow. Happy trails, Love Safety and Blessings be yours!

Hey Gryph and Sea,
What a treat running into you ladies this Monday. Am so impressed by your courage to take on such a tremendous undertaking! You inspire me to want to pursue my greatest dreams in life also.. I think you are amazing individuals and feel honored to have had the opportunity to meet such strong and courageous women. You have just begun your journey, and already you are becoming more like the tree than its fruits 🙂
Blessings on your continued journey,
Dear family and friends of the Free Range Rodeo,
I was among those who were fortunate enough to run into Gryph and Sea in the Los Padres National Forest this past weekend and I am following up on a request of theirs to update you all on their status. As of around mid-day on Sunday January 8th, the Free Range Rodeo (all accounted for) set up camp at Willett camp at one of the cabins near the hot springs, and seemed to be in good spirits. Such good spirits even seemed to be present among the horses (who were rolling playfully around in the dirt.) Their plan was to continue through the sespe creek trail after spending some time at Willett. I wish you the best of luck on your journey and I hope the two of you find everything that you are looking for and more.
“Life is a journey, not a destination.” -Ralph Waldo Emerson.
Thank you so much for posting this update. It’s great to know that everyone in the herd is doing well.
Jenna – Sea’s sister.

Looking forward to meeting you both. I am going to contact our local papers and see if they are interested in your story. I can also help with those care packages….I make some pretty good jerky!
I was wondering if you guys have found a place to stay for the night yet?
Hi Sea, Griphin, This is Mary and we met you thurs nite with Frank and Ruthie Reed at the fairgrounds in Hanford. I called the Hanford paper and if they can find you they want to do a story about your trip. Maybe they can get a hold of you from here. They are going to call me tomorrow and I’ll let them know your route. I want to follow your blog as much as possible and if my cats approve ~ I’ll have some fun, Right now I have too many on my lap to do anything. In my rescue orginazation I specialize in newborn babies that have lost their cat moms, ( bottle babies ) handicapped & hospice. All these guys like to be held all the time. Good luck this week. I’ll talk later. ~ Mary and The Safaricats
