Crossing America

by Don Vosburg

When Debra Yavorski was a teenager in upstate New York, she enjoyed riding horses and camping. She worked in stables for the chance to ride horses, but a special treat for her was to go on a two-day horseback camp out.

“Somebody would truck our camping gear out and drop it off for us, and we would ride to it,” Yavorski said. “We would stay the night and ride back in to the stable the next day. I just loved that.”

Before graduating from high school, Yavorski planned what she thought would be the ultimate horseback camping trip. She would ride a horse from the East Coast of the continental United States to the West Coast. Yavorski figured such a ride couldn’t realistically be done in one stretch. By dividing the ride into sections, however, she could limit her riding to the fair weather months of summer and early fall. The place where she quit riding for one season would be the next year’s starting point.
