In the last couple months, I’ve been making a lot of headway.
I’ve been working on:
Saddle bag set ups and modifications.
Hennessy hammock set up
Researching memory foam as a saddle pad
Ponying training and riding Roxy solo with trip weights.
I hired an awesome web designer to help me with website creation, blog posting, sharing on FB. I had a website made for my book and created a PDF download version. Thanks so much Julie Dulong.
On the logistic end of things I’ve been preparing for:
Border crossing legalities and contacts.
Shots and paperwork needed for crossing border and states.
Route set up
I visited Dr Grant Lum of Athletic Edge Athlete Services in Toronto for some dieting and stretching advice. I need individualized programs for my body and its many previous injuries, as well as my hypoglycema. A torn gluteus medius means I have to be careful when in the saddle for long periods, when riding Jingles, my wider horse.
When waiting for Dr. Grant, I had 1 doctor and 2 resident doctors look over me. One of them had just been on an eco-volunteering tour in San Juan la Laguna, where I almost bought a house 13 years ago. I went to their offices in Toronto the next morning and had a nice chat. I really look forward to meeting up with them “down the road”.
Last week I spoke for the Madawaska Valley Horticultural Society on Edible Gardening. I talked about my book, gardening in Zone 3 and the upcoming trip. It was nice to see some of the local gardening afficianados.
Thanks for reading! Please share this post.
