What a Wonderful Drive!

Although exhausting, Sunday was a truly great outing.  We had our “choice” of a horse show, or a trail drive.  A driving club in Wisconsin was holding a group drive at a living history farm.  Currently closed until May, the farm was vacant and we had it all to ourselves!  We drove through historic recreations of different villages from around the world.  In the summer, the living history actors reenact how life was lived on working farms all around the world, with demos on everything from how they washed laundry, to how they used horses and hand implements to plow the fields.  The place also had a civil war encampment and does reenactments.

It was our first time driving out of state for a trail, and it was a ton of fun.  We did about a 2 hour drive (mostly walking), and covered about 10km (6.2miles).  The horses were amazing, the weather was incredible, and the park was really interesting.

We may go back there soon, for a drive around when the villages are open to the public.  The requirement to do that?  We become part of the living history, and are required to dress in period-appropriate attire!  You mean, I get to wear a froofy, fluffy victorian dress and fancy hat????  !!!! How cool is THAT!  So doing that!

I wore my helmet cam, however, my computer is having issues processing video (still!)  I hope to get that video done in a day or two, but I’ve got to get my computer fixed first.  In the mean time, here are pictures my husband took with his cell phone:

All totaled we counted about 24 trailers and 26 horses and about 40 or so people.  FUN DAY!

The pictures below were taken by fellow club member Donna C.  Thank you, so much Donna, for the great photos!!
