  The Long Riders Guild
Early in this ride, we met a woman that asked us if the "Long Riders" knew we were out here. I had no clue what she was talking about. She explained to us that it was an organization that documents, encourages, and tries to help "Long Riders" on their "expeditions". There are currently expeditions that are in progress, virtually on every continent! In order to be an official Long Rider, you have to ride 1,000 consecutive miles on horseback. There are less then 300 Long Riders in the world. Shortly after the woman asked us about the Long Riders, we were contacted by CuChullaine O'Reilly and his wife, Basha. They are the founders of The Long Riders Guild. They have been so helpful, and put us in contact with other Long Riders that have either done their rides or are in the process of doing others. They have been wonderful and so helpful with information that might help us. When they update their website, we will be listed as "current expeditions". Check out their site at www.longriders@thelongridersguild.com . The site is one that is very interesting and full of neat information. We are looking forward to finishing our 1,000 miles and becoming Long Riders. It is an organization that Edie and I are both looking forward to being a part of. It is quite an honor to be a Long Rider. Well, I guess that's about it for now. Happy Mothers Day .... Andi

Andi - thanks much for the Long Riders tip. I remember hearing of them, but had forgotten. What great stories! It's hard to stop reading. I'm looking forward to seeing the Trekkers listed as "Guild" members.
Congratulations on crossing your 500 mile mark ... and apparently none the worse for wear it appears. You ALL look great!
