Mule ride across three states ... Rod Maday and his mule, Henry, stopped in Philip on their trip from Boy River, MN, to Gillette, WY.
Maday and his mule, Henry, two stopped in Philip early morning on Wednesday, August 1. Maday later cooled off in the Philip community swimming pool as Henry grazed in the shade of nearby trees. They had previously come through Hayes and were to reach Wall by mid-afternoon on Thursday.
They have covered 1,200 miles in 30 days and have already worn out one set of Henry's shoes. "I've done as many as 70 miles in a day, but 16 hours in a saddle is a long day," said Maday.
