One of those ye ha days!

Today is trail mix day & celebrate pony express day.  The Pony Express existed for 18 months between the days of April 3, 1860 to October 1861. The rider changed out every 75 to 100 miles, but the mail never so much as slowed even in the worst of weather. While the average trip from coast to coast (On Horseback!) took 10 days, when they delivered Lincoln’s Inaugural Address, the trip was made in a mere 7 days and 17 hours.  Buffalo Bill Cody was a rider at age 15 for a awhile as was Wild Bill Hickok.

As I was typing these in I realized the common core of the two…Pony express trail and trail mix!
