Gas not an issue for this trip

When Mark Ryan traveled across the West, he didn't have to worry about gas money.

However, hay was an issue.

Ryan rode his horse Mister Doodles 2,000 miles though seven states.

It took him nearly five months to travel from Oklahoma to Washington state.

And his old school journey went beyond just the mode of transportation.

Ryan didn't have any fancy gizmos with him, like a GPS satellite navigation device or even a cell phone.

He says there's nothing like seeing the country at 2 miles an hour.
