Faith Greater Than Pain / 1 Man, 2 Feet, 1400 Miles, 60 years old...
I was the first person in history to recreate the 1856 Mormon Handcart Trek. I pulled an authentic 217# handcart from Iowa City to Salt Lake City almost 1400 miles! I ate as they ate and did as they did. I wore period clothing and slept in a canvas period tent. I lost 48 pounds in 110 days and almost died three different times. Three reasons for my trek were first to honor mygrandmother of 1856 who also did this. Second was to experience the trials and trauma that they went through and third was to teach religious tolerance. The greatest part was when my grandmother of 1856 appeared to me. I was also visited by my wife who passed away years before and had a conversation with both for the last 5 days of my trek and it was a spiritual gift beyond understanding.
