Now This Is a North Dakota Original.
Here's a guy that's making a trip old school style.
62 Year old Scott Schlepp of North Dakota is making a trip from the Canadian border to The Mexican border in a covered wagon pulled by two horses named Duke and Duchess. He started his trip on August first and hopefully, he can get there by Christmas.
According to MYND Now.
Schlepp has a 1977 Chevy camper along for the ride, too, pulling a trailer. He'll drive it ahead, without Duke and Duchess. He'll then leave the trailer and camper, go back on an ATV to Duke and Duchess, and bring the horses and the ATV back to the camper and trailer. His team has his sharp eye.
"I don't see no swollen ankles, I usually touch their knees at night, 'cause if they're sore, you can feel heat, and I don't feel any heat or anything like that, so I'm checking everything," Schlepp said.
"These are my babies. I've got to take care of these as much as possible. For me, I can do it, but I mean I got to take care of them. They're pulling me," Schlepp said.
You might be wondering why he's doing this.
"Why not? ... Chance of a lifetime, living the American dream, how does that sound?" Schlepp said.
Sounds like a guy that loves to be on the road.
