Traffic was slowed to a crawl on eastbound highway 78 last week, as a mule-drawn wagon took the right-of-way. Apparently the laws allowing horse and wagon the right-of-way are still on the books. Gene Glasscock is taking advantage of this as he makes his way from Poway to Georgia. He said he’d drive his homemade wagon ten miles a day, pulled by his mules Kitty and Kate.

This is not Glasscock’s first cross-country trip; he holds many records on horseback. Assisting him are local equine enthusiasts, farriers, and passersby. His planned route was through Ranchita, south to Interstate 8, and into Arizona.

The 'who', 'how', 'where', and 'when' are great and all, but there's one thing left out: Why?

Great story.

I bet Gene Glasscock has some great stories to tell!
