New Sponsor: Granite Mountain Outfitters, Poncha Springs, CO

Hello Everyone!  I have a new and wonderful sponsor here in Poncha Springs, CO.  Granite Mountain Outfitters is a horseback riding operation on top of the beautiful Poncha Pass, surrounded by incredible 14,000 foot peaks, the Sangre De Cristo Mountains, and other wonderful sites.

Yesterday, my good friend Sue Applegate, who runs this business, became a sponsor of my adventure by purchasing a "SPOT" device for me.  This is a GPS tracker which also has a 911 feature I can use "if things get ugly" anywhere in the world.  It also has a mapping feature which can show you exactly where I am along the trail.  Click on the following link to see where we are:

We are leaving this area in the next couple of hours.  Sue is trailering me and the horses back to the Colorado Trail - about 10 miles away.  We're looking forward to riding again, even though I TOTALLY fell in love with Poncha Springs and the wonderful people I've met here.

Over the next couple of weeks we'll travel almost 250 miles, skirting the Collegiate Peaks and the Vail/Breckenridge area.  I'm looking forward to it, and we hope you'll join us along the way.

Happy Trails!


  1. Great device and great way to follow your steps !
    Good luck.

  2. Hey, your website is very cool! I wish you luck and will be following your progress. Tell Sue I said HELLO!
