4/1-/11, Missouri Valley, IA - After a short hiatus, my good friend John McComsey finally got tired of civilized life, hitched up three good mules to a wagon, and hit the road. We talked on phone yesterday, and he filled me in on what’s going on.
I first met John a couple of years ago when I was driving my team from New Hampshire to Mississippi. Since then, we’ve been the best of friends. In April of 2009, John hitched up his fine Percheron mules to a wagon and drove it all the way to Phoenix, AZ, is an astonishing 4 months. Since that time, John and his girlfriend Marilyn have taken several wagon trips throughout the south, Well now, he’s been hankering for the road so much, he hitched up his team for an extended journey.
Having already left Tennessee, John is currently on his way across Alabama, headed to Arkansas. There, he’ll pick up Marilyn (who’s been nursing a broken arm) and set their sights on Charleston, South Carolina.
