How to Arrive At Your High School Reunion in Style
Vern Herrst is a 67-year-old cancer survivor and plans to ride on horseback to his 50th high school reunion-- 2,200 miles away! He began his epic journey last Friday from the Methow Valley in northern Washington in hopes of reaching Howell, Michigan, before the reunion in August. He'll be riding his 12-year-old horse, Nikki, through Idaho, Montana, North Dakota, Minnesota, and Wisconsin and says, "I always wanted to do something like this -- and who knows how many more chances I'll have." The trip is also a fundraiser to support agencies that helped in Herrst's fight against myeloproliferative disease, a blood disorder similar to leukemia. Herrst hopes to ride between 20 and 25 miles per day until he enters Michigan sometime in July. At night, he plans to roll out a sleeping bag and sleep under the stars or climb into a tent if it's raining. If you want to follow his adventure you can check out his Facebook page: 2016 Great Northern Horse Adventure.
