[RC] Attn. GA & FLA. people. Exciting Guest!!! - rides2far

Hey guys,

Just got a phonecall from Gene Glasscock, the Long Rider who is riding his 
horses 20,000 miles visiting all the state capitals in the lower 48. He is 
almost in Atlanta (God help him) and I need to talk to riders who are on his 

He is headed south on Hwy. 19 The Georgia towns he will be traveling through 
are: (ignore spelling he was calling them out on a cell phone and I jotted in 


He's traveling around 20 miles per day. If you are on his route (wish I was!) 
and would be interested in giving him a place to stay over you can write me 
with a contact number. I asked him if I could post to you all and he said O.K. 
he'd call me in a few days to get any I had to give. He sounded like the 
*nicest* man. You can find out more about him at: 
www.thelongridersguild.com/Expeditions.htm and click on Gene Glasscock. His 
ride is raising money to sponsor students from Paraguay to attend a missionary 
school in Pensacola (?)

After crossing into FLA. he'll be on hwy 319 headed for Tallahassee. After that 
on up to Montgomery. He said he has no plans where to stay...jut lets the Lord 
take care of it. He didn't ask, but didn't turn it down. The Long Rider's page 
has a journal where many people he has stayed with tell about their experience. 
I hope the endurance riders will take advantage of a chance to meet him. He 
has already ridden a QH from I think Alaska to the equator (12,000 miles). What 
a chance to hear some great stories!

By the way, I need someone who can meet up with Gene, at least a week south of 
Atlanta 150 miles or so, to let me ship some bridles that Patti from Canada is 
sending to Gene. He's not an easy guy to get in front of! I didn't think to ask 
him if he had a place to spend Christmas.

P.S. When he goes west he plans to cover the Tevis trail and would love for 
riders to join him...maybe August.
