Homer Rader's annual wagon train departed from Columbiana Farm near Paris, Kentucky on Wednesday July 18, 2018 to begin the 3 day trip
over to the farm of Danny Crawford near Hillsboro, Kentucky where Danny was planning to host a weekend wagon ride. The initial portion of the ride was through Bourbon County which is the
home of some of the most beautiful thoroughbred horse farms in the world. The weather on Wednesday was ideal with moderate temperatures and blue skies. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to
accompany the 3 carts that rode on Wednesday due to a family emergency which required that I leave to go home for the day. I was able to rejoin the group on Wednesday evening in North Middletown, Ky.
and was aboard to take photos on Thursday morning when we resumed under almost perfect weather conditions again. There were only 2 carts driving on Thursday as one had gone home after
Wednesday's ride. We spent Thursday night in Milltown, Ky where we had a tailgate supper of delicious chicken and the fixin's. Friday morning greeted us with a serious weather change as
heavy rains began to fall in the morning and continued off and on through much of the day. Despite the heavy rains, we were able to ford the Liking River and try a new route which everyone
really enjoyed. We made our usual lunch stop at the store in Sherburne, Ky. before continuing our trek over to Danny's farm under slightly better weather conditions. Although we did get wet
on Friday morning, the temperatures remained on the mild side and no one seemed to be terribly uncomfortable with the situation.
