Or cars passing them by going 60 mph.” Osborn and his good friend Joshua Johnson estimate they will be on the road 355 miles. They started last Saturday and said they are about half way on the trip.“On a good day we get in about 26 miles,” Osborn said. “Today we’ll probably get in 22.”Wellington is posing a problem for them due to the amount of road construction in town. They will take their covered wagon north of town and go across because they didn’t want road construction creating problems for the horses.Yesterday evening they had to stop near Oxford due to the thunderstorms. They stayed in the a barn owned by Ryan and Linda Chase.“They were really nice people,” Osborn said. “It’s been a very interesting trip.”last_img read more
