My name is Bob Skelding and Iím driving a wagon on a journey throughout the United States. My only goals are to see new places, meet plenty of nice people like yourself, and to enjoy this great country of ours like itís meant to be enjoyed.
I started this trip in Deerfield, New Hampshire. I still donít know exactly where Iíll end up, but I know Iím really going to enjoy the people and the places along the way. Come and share the journey with me.
Hereís a brief outline of my 9000 miles of travel to date:
Trip #1: 8/08 to 2/09 - New Hampshire to Mississippi (1800 miles)
Accident - On 2/10/09 we were rear-ended by tanker truck traveling at 71 mph. The first wagon, pulled by four Percheron horses (3 mares and a gelding) was completely destroyed and Dolly and Deedee were killed. This required construction of a new wagon and purchase of a new team. I spent 4 months recovering before setting off on a new adventure, with a new wagon and a pair of Belgians to pull it.
